Although there are a few threads about it, I am starting to see the regular "Stop crashing your bloody bikes!!1!eleventy!!!" posts that accompany these threads about offs/stacks. Although an element of negativity is implied, for everyone who's made a thread; I'm pretty sure the request is to not crash rather than not posting about it after the fact Please do not be ashamed to share a story. As a rider who has been on 2 powered wheels less than a year, I know I have learnt a LOT about bikes, road conditions and defensive riding from your posts. Thank you for your stories. At the very least they are entertaining, at the most I remember things which I otherwise doubt I would give as much consideration to had I not heard about another rider's misfortune. - like watching for spilt liquids on the road, staying away from the parts of corners were the cars sweep all the gravel, etc. A testament to you as motorists in every off-thread I've seen is that the rider can explain exactly what went wrong. Haven't seen a single, useless "Bike asploded! Wut happened lol?", and that's tops. Cheers for sharing. Ride safe/fun. -Ktulu.
