Dropped my bike for the first time today, and not just one but twice!! First time was in the dirt, just got bogged in a turn and lost it. But the second one was the painfull one, riding down the road and went to go turn up onto the sidewalk to get back into the bush. There must have been some oil or something on the side because it just went straight over. So glad i was wearing my protection, even if it was my dirt stuff ( boots, dirt pants) and proper road jacket. All i got from it was the slightest bit of road rash on my knee, and a good lesson.
