...and Down She Went !!

When for a ride with my wife this morning. Was going to me the gang for breakfast out in the Hill Country.(a regular Saturday thang) About half way there I realized I had forgot my wallet. so I pulled into a gas station to turn around(was bummed bout not getting to go) well I made that stupid mistake that we all have made!! I was on a incline turning around tooooo slooow,and down she went!!! I just stepped off and let her lay down ( guess she was tired) My wife was not as lucky it through her to the ground.Thanks for good gear and a helmet she was just a lil shook up .will about two week ago I saw the video on how to right your bike when she is down,and it works very well. By the time it all happened and I got her up we had a crowd. Just a few more scratches and bent my shifter a lil . That was easy to bend back when I got home.This make number 2 for me but the first for Sammie (wife).She told me proudly when we got home " Well I guess I'm an official of the Droppers Club now right!!! You gota love that kind of sence of humor

Sounds like a 'keeper'... Miss Sammie and "Lola".. in that order!

Glad to hear y'all are ok! Don't worry, dropping it will happen less and less often =)

I live in Round Rock, across from the RRPD...

I dropped mine twice as well, once due to a brake failure, second time was my mistake =|
