Each of my crashes have been from tucking the front. I remember having enough time from when I felt the front give until I hit the ground to think "". Then it was sky, ground, sky, ground, sky, ground. I just cross my arms across my chest, rolled with it and hoped for the best.

I never seam to crash as graceful as the pro's.

8 ribs


I hear about the craziest wrecks from the track/streets.Some being able to walk away and others not so much.

I do appreciate the advice ya'll give.It will help me whether it is on the streets/track.

yep, that how i've done it. I've thought, ", i only have on jeans and my steel toe boots and my leather jacket, slide on the steel toes and jacket, not on the jeans" so i was able to maneuver myself around to that. i also knew to keep my head off the pavement even though i had on a helmet.

I have also done like boss lady did and surf the bike, i think it spun about 5 times while sliding doen the pavement with me on it

Mine was "awwww " ground sky ground sky ground sky...did i just hear a bone snap?...ground sky ground sky.

I had a plan while the bike was upright. The sudden switch from bike to ground was apparently not covered in my planning though.

One expert is quoted as saying the most important thing in racing is to "get flat". If you roll, you will break stuff. If you stay flat and slide, your gear (or skin, take your pick) will absorb the energy, not your bones n stuff as you flop around.
