So was out on a casual late Sunday ride, negotiating the last hairpin in a set. I carried a bit more speed into this one than the previous few - no biggie, lean in a bit more, no problem. Was doing about 30 on a left hander. Was tightening up a little through the apex and SCRAPE goes the boot. It popped it off the peg, and next thing I know I'd plonked it on the road. I think in that split second the thought process was "I'm going down, quick put your foot down to pop the bike upright". The foot down didn't make any difference, only just grazed the road, and the lean stayed - but it could have easily been much worse by that simple action. I got through the corner clean and no problem, except for an elevated heart rate. It was exhilarating to do - I didn't know I was leaning that far. Only been riding for about 10 months so it was a big milestone for me. I was mentally debriefing afterwards - the foot scraped because I was resting my arch on the peg, and foot angled out a little. Nice and comfortable to cruise like that, and easy access to the pedals - but I'm thinking that in the tight stuff, putting the balls of my feet on the pegs would be better? As for putting the foot down - I'm hoping that now that it has happened once it'll be in the front of my mind so if it happens again I'll know what NOT to do!
