Just the other day I went around a left hand corner,, which was a bit bumpy and it tightened up on me more than I expected and maybe I was going a bit faster than I should have been into it. In short it tightened my nuts a bit, you know, the deep breath syndrome. Mid corner I thought, what do I do, run wide out of the corner or really crank it over and risk handling that I was too sure of at those angles. I chose the latter as a car coming the opposite direction soon took option "A" away,, so I simply held my breath and leaned it right over, expecting it to buck and wallow over the bumps... It didn't. Admittedly the suspension feels a little softer than I would usually like, but as per my normal policy,, I get the front and back to work "with" each other and even on this bike it's not that bad...
