A few weeks ago I pulled over on highway 1 to let 2 cars go by, the bottom of my left jeans leg got caught on the footpeg....my right foot was on gravel and the onshore wind was blowing me over to the left. I fell over right into the road and thought somebody was going to run over my head.

Cars pulled over everywhere to help, one car just drove right around me. After the bike was righted with assistance I told everybody "that was my first dump" with a big stupid grin on my face. Everyone left pretty quickly at that point.....

Either a car almost ran me over or it looked far more dramatic than it felt, everybody was very concerned that I was ok. Nice people to stop and help.

Later in a cafe I heard somebody say. "there's that bike...."
