"Learn to laugh at yourself, or others will do it for you."

Remixing some old classics. Trolls were getting out of control, and the old intro music I used to use was not kosher per YouTube (no idea where I found the song originally and no way to contact the artist for permission). So, let's start over! And no more moderated comments! *balloons! confetti!*

Oh, and for the record, it was not "one rock." There were dozens. Ergo, I picked up one of the rocks and "made an example of it." That'll learn 'em. Dumb rocks.


And, frankly, how to drop it like a girl.

This is in the "how to and style" category, because not only do I demonstrate how-- I do it with style.

I have over 11,000 miles on 2 wheels, and this is my most serious incident yet. I ride safe and do my best to keep it shiny side up. But, mistakes happen. Hopefully, I am the sort who learns from them.

The best I can figure, my rear tire went nut-zo on the rocks, and I in turn when a little nut-zo on the front brake. I don't remember grabbing it, but it wouldn't have taken much, with my back tire already losing traction and the front tire already turned... Glancing down as it happened certainly didn't help. Target fixation FTW! It's everything I know not to do, and everything I practice and drill not to do... *sigh*

Any questions?
