If you ride much you will crash or fall.Speaking of evasive maneuvers....
Not a matter of if, just a matter of when.
The trick is to learn "how to crash gracefully".
Some do not like them but a "skid-lid" has saved my life more than once.
I'll ride in shorts and tennis shoes but always,always with a helmet. Mom drilled this into my head and thank her soul for that.
My college roommate called motorcycles "Two wheeled coffins". I like that.
Live to ride and ride to live.
