    Gedoverit! Pick it up and carry on. Bikes have two wheels, inherently unstable, they fall over. Itís part of biking.

    Some pithy saying about biking, or a quote from a self-styled guru. Take your pick.

    Pick it up and ride man. We all drop bikes and anyone who says otherwise is lying😊
    I'm sure we all have felt the same.

    I've dropped a bike 3x over 5 years. It was the first time while actually riding and I won't lie and say that it didn't hurt my ego/lower my confidence I guess it was just stressful happening my first month back here and right after I recovered from an infection I spent a couple weeks fighting. I'm at least pretty much settled in now.

    I haven't done it (since the last time).

    The funniest time I did it was on the kart track with my moped. My friends were all on much faster bikes, and were all much faster riders. I didn't have a chance. But there was this one really tight section of the track where I could get the moped to go pretty well. I had been scraping the expansion chamber a bit in one of the corners, but when my friends came up behind me I just had to go for it. The pipe scraped a bit more than usual because I went in faster and with more lean. The rear tire lifted up and I slid out. It didn't hurt, and the gear did its job so I was fine. I was really impressed by how much lean I could get on that little bike. lolz
