    I went for a short ride up in the hills behind my place and had a little get off that could have been a lot worse. got lucky and landed in some soft dirt instead of rocks which are pretty abundant. I got up and dusted off with nothing hurt but my pride.

    I tried to share a url link to my utube channel with a short video of my get off but no worky for me. darn it. Im not very tech.savy at times.

    So, any take aways for you? As in what do you think happened and how do you think you could prevent it next time.

    1:29 I think contains the cause, but I don't know why you ended up in that position.

    Yes, I tried to skirt around the puddle which was in a fairly deep rut that had very slick sides. At that point there was no hope of recovery and what would have been a pretty innocuous fall was a little more dramatic due to the drop-off into the ravine.
    in hindsight, I should have just aimed for the deep part of the rut and rode it out!
