Sums it up perfectly, except for the 'Oh no' inner monologue.

The bigger the audience, the bigger the stack. NOT tellin'!

Glad the bike and you are OK

This needs expansion, one cannot simply dangle the lure of schadenfreude in front of us all, and then not elaborate. C'mon, we're all friends here, and you've already been laughed at so where's the harm....

Nobody wrote:Ah well. If you do nothing, you get nothing wrong. Plenty of people out there in the world who do nothing different and take no risks.

Being a unicyclist I quite regularly UPD (Unicycle lingo for "UnPlanned Dismount") somewhat regularly. And being a unicyclist there is aahigh chance that someone is watching at that instant.

Do I care? I just figure that the only reason the observer is not looking a goose as I am is exactly as you say.

However if a fall is ever caught on video then my kids will give me soooooo much grief. AFAIK it hasn't happened - YET!

Still sore. Some improvement.
I still can't sleep on it or lift any weight with my R arm.
I think I have damaged connective tissue, ligaments and/or tendons.
I have another big week of Cert IV training+assessment in Melb so can't afford time off.
I'll get it looked at if it is still giving me grief after that. Yes I know that isn't flawless logic but that is the plan.

No, the one that witnessed it didn't laugh either.
He is a really nice bloke and fellow cyclist.
