Annoying Habit

Am I the only one stupid enough to put a foot down when the front tire skids out? I hit some sand (again :roll: ) in a sharp right-hander this weekend. As the front tire started to skid out (with soudns effects: "sssshhhh"), I put my right foot down.

Owie! That smarts!

(P.S. I believe that the only thing putting my foot down does is increase my chances that I'll strangle myself on what's left of it after the wreck, 'cause it'll probably be dislocated and swung up around my puny neck, choking off my wind pipe.)

Anyone else as dumb as me, or am I alone in this department?

No, brother, I did it on a slow U-turn right after I had gotten my bike. I was lucky in that I was able to avoid dropping her. BTW, I that I had a hernia for the next few days...yeah a little soreness in the groin, if ya know what I mean.
