I didn't get one scratch - but my jacket.
I feel owing to my fate.

Nothing to do with your saddle height, everything to do with operator error.

To be more specific, he couldn't lift his leg high enough because his jeans wouldn't allow him. Inertia took care of the rest.

Use the belt or lower the saddle.
