16 years old on my first bike, a 1972 Honda CL450 Scrambler. Hightailing it down a crowed dirt road that had been made flat by laying loose gravel. I discovered the placement of a helmet sized rock buried in the gravel at ~40MPH.

THUMP - Tank Slapper - High Side - Tuck and roll into the berm which flipped me up ass-over-teakettle into a tumble weed.

Zero injuries due to the crash but I did sprain my toe kicking my bike in frustration before realizing I'd lost my shoe.

I'm told it was a sight to behold.

Dad paid for the ice cream that day AFTER he wiped the tears from his eyes from laughing so hard.
