Three weeks in to my riding career, and 3 days in to my new Wee, I had a lady in a Lexus SUV make a right turn from the left lane, right 'across my bow.'
Being the rank noob I was, I braked too hard, stalled, and promptly threw myself and my 3-day old bike on the ground. Broken turn signal was the extent of the damage, but the first drop always shakes you up.
Guy in a cable co. truck blocked the right two lanes, strobe lights and all, helped my get the bike back up, and stayed till I was ready to roll again. (Stupid tip-over-switch!)
