13 years and I've remained upright...

...although my childhood saw me wipe out on a motorcross bike nearly every Sunday :-)

kind of sad, self-referential comment. Of course maybe you'll never crash, but until you don't, you'll never know ;)
at the risk of tempting fate, I have twice in lots of years [can't be bothered to check whether I started riding in 94 or 96], but both of those were on circuit and therefore don't count :D

It's all about mitigation of risk. We minimise the chance that it's going to happen to us by only riding like a numpty occasionally.

If you ome off a mini moto does that count for your one crash? :oops: (Especially if you really hurt yourself and can't get on the real bike for 5 months). Hopefully that does me for now.

Nice one Jan, as Oz said above:

Just a shame that you chose to ride like a numpty whilst surrounded by 20 others all riding like numpties!! :P Glad to see that you're back on the bike :lol:
