Okay, today I was on Brown Wave, over-confident and I just wasn't feeling the bike. This represents my learning curve:
Goes well with cheese!
I'm pretty sure I was rumbled by a forum member or two when I got back to the car park (walking)!
Just doing my bit for the local economy!
I had one almost that bad I whacked against the ground until I got it straight enough to roll between the forks. It was still not salvageable, but at least I didn't walk. Glad you didn't lose any hide in the process.
