okay, I will fess up

Painful memory from many years ago, but for the enjoyment and edification of the collective, here goes:

1986 K100RS with a hitch and Westson Roadster camper trailer. Towed it all over Canada for several years with no problems until the day we arrived at Meat Cove NS and went to the camp ground.

No problems negotiating hills to actual camping spot but then decided to take bike up the hill further to the office with trailer still attached. Stalled it on a steep driveway incline, tried to apply brakes quickly but before I could react, trailer had dragged me back a foot or so and I lost my balance.

The rest is history, much to the amusement of locals and campers.
