Bad idea sequence

Missing shift from 1st to 2nd at critical moment results in this

Should I take the little side trail?

Nah, last time I tried it, I lost the bike to the downhill side. I have a "better" idea. I'll just push it straight over the drop off.

Uh oh!!! Bad idea!!!!

Too late now!!!! Second "good" idea - throw yourself under the bike
to protect it.

Will your faithful riding partner run to your rescue????

Not just yet. Need another photo or two.

I'm conveniently trapped in position until ample photos are taken. If you're
a skilled lip reader, you can perhaps read my lips under the full face helmet.
