Yes, you're right, I took too-wide of a turn into a church parking lot driveway (going too fast for my ability) and got caught in that space where the grass meets the asphalt. After picking myself up and realizing I'd survived the tumble without broken bones, I checked out the bike and slowly peddled home with a sore hip, a few scrapes, and injured ego. After that, I realize I need to take your advice seriously for sure.
