Default Re: Best way to crash?

the reason you lay it down is because you want the to follow the bike. not the bike following you .
as in if the bike is following you the rolls/slides/flips over you.

from what i understand (& inevitably somebody will tell me how i'm wrong)
if one locks up their back tire & it starts to go sideways.
don't release your brake you may drop the bike. though it is much much safer than releasing your rear brake. then the bike will toss you over the bike then topple over you.

i would advise practising. try some panic stops & quick turns.

i've been riding bikes & scooters most of my life. the best advise is.
ride like no one can see you.
