    My first fall came on sand, it was more of a sharp turn, over sand that was in a dip, so it was a good 5 or 6 foot slide. Don't want that to ever happen again hah.

    I think previously responding to this thread stirred "bad mojo". I havent fallen in months but tonight when arriving int the driveway, I unclipped the right and lent to the right. As I began falling, I manged to rip my left foot out and stop the fall.....

    Don't worry it only happens a couple of times. At least you didn't hurt anything except your pride. I broke my elbow from a similar no speed fall (left foot out, right hand fall). My last fall happened years ago.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes
