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?

Yeh, I don't know, I guess it depends on the situation. I was making a left turn through an
intersection the other day and must have hit some gravel or something as the front wheel started
to slide out. Before I could even realize what was happening, my left foot hit the pavement hard,
but I honestly think I would have gone down if that hadn't happened. My toes were a bit sore
that evening (from being jammed forward in my boot), but aside from that it wasn't too bad.
