Smart article. It's very easy to make these mistakes and even easier to avoid making them once you know what to avoid.

I loved the article. I dropped the bike in the safety course and almost threw in the towel. I had my license already because I rode when I was young. The instructor was supportive and insistent that I stay the course. I did. Unfortunately it wasn’t the only time that I dropped my bike. Stopping when the handlebars weren’t straight. Going too slow in a u-turn. Loosing my footing backing my bike out of the garage and onto a rocky driveway. I do hope that that is the last time! But most people, male or female, will tell you that they have dropped their bikes.

Tipping over has happened to me twice—the second time, my left leg was pinned under the sidecase. So, when you know the bike is going to tip over, what should you do to protect yourself from being pinned? I can't find this talked about anywhere.

Of course, better training and skills is the best answer, but S*** happens too.

Thanks very much.

There's no training that I am aware of about how to jump away from a falling motorcycle, but I suppose that's just what you would do. Once it's past the point of no return, jump away from the bike if you can!

Look where you want to go or stop. I learned this one day when I was riding around a rally site looking for parking. I saw a space on the left but turned right slightly and when I looked ahead I had slowed enough to just tip over to the right. Live and learn. I was only embarrassed...no damage other than the ego.
