You must be a dirt rider!
It's certainly more than my average. I had two clipless pedal-related 'graceful falls' while I was getting my release tension settings sorted out, then nothing since. My only accident didn't result in my coming off - I just 'glanced' off the car that hit me across the road between two on-coming cars. I still don't know how I got my feet out of the pedals and down on the ground. Didn't even get my knicks dirty!
I must admit, I dread falling on tarmac - the 'cheese grater' concept that pospete used in another thread is very apt.
ps. I kid you not, I came very close to 'dirtying' my knicks though!
