You just need the right bike.
Something light and lower powered, or a tw200.
After a bad crash, I sold the heavy tall 650 and had a tw200, and did not fall, sold that and got an old xt200, and have not been down on that yet.
Light, enough suspension to have fun, takes a while to get up to speed so it keeps me out of trouble, plus its fun wringing its little neck for all its worth.
I would not say I came close to falling yet, but did hit a tree last time out, at 1 mph, with my front wheel.
That is the kind of crash I can deal with.
