Horizontal Bikes

Whoops! Gravity Surge!

My friends tease me about how often my bikes end up on their sides. I know that this isn’t “normal”, but considering that two of the bikes are dual sports, I feel fully absolved from any guilt. And I’m getting better at picking them up too. Here are some pictures, in no particular order, of various “oops” moments I’ve had (obviously not including the many that weren’t caught on camera)

And then sometimes the bike is just sort of “stuck”

At least I have good friends who join me once in a while!
