I would like to start this therad in General as it will ge the most exposure for responses although the intended audience is the new riders.
When did you first crash? Why....
The information I am trying to convey is when in your riding career did you first crash, why.
Example response would be
Reason : riding beyond current limits
Reason: Debris on road/travelling to fast for conditions
Try to give an accurate representation of the reason
I am not looking for detailed stories... just bullet points.
I am trying to see if it is true that most crashes occur "after" your first season, and if it is mostly due to the fact most riders have confidence but not experience.
I have seen a couple studies where it show year 2 and 3 to be the most likley crash years....
Tip overs don't count as a crash.
Thanks for your help.
