Why did the rear spin out? Not that cold yet,, Sand?
That happened to me years back slow left turn then pow on my face, it was in the high 30's or low 40's :O so,
Had some rash on my L knee and messed up ankle, helment scratched and L side of jacket and glove scuffed up. Glad I had my gear on I would have been really screwed if not, my helment was pretty bad and had to get a new one.
Better than head trauma........

Save the broken bits, they always seem to be worth money. Good to hear you are ok, isn't gear wonderful...

if you have that stock rear suspention in there...... that may have added to the problem. It used to buck me around pretty good, just exactly as you described. Low speed, front brake on some so the rear is light.... and leaned.

I have an Ohlins in there now and none of the problems regardless of what rubber I run.

if you find it getting silly under those conditions again... worth looking into adjusting the rear suspention..... or if you have the coin, picking up an aftermarket rear suspention system.
