Gear up guys, As much as we love our scooters they are not exactly the most stable of rides. With 8 to 13 inch wheels depending on your model, sooner or later your going down. Tree roots on trails can stop you for example, and best you don’t fall on one falling off. I had similar incident as well like aqua trying to go around an oblivious person on a sidewalk yapping into his phone, and there was a random hole my front wheel stuck in. A former time my front wheel sunk into loose gravel on a sharp downhill turn at very low speed and i fell to the left on the gravel. but still was enough to rip through my jeans and shirt on my left arm to get scraped up. I had light gloves on (not a scratch on my hands which was my learning moment). I have had people ridicule my lightly armored coat and knee pads and particularly my helmet. But you get up without a scratch except on your gear its a relief you won’t be picking scabs of your hands and body or worse for the next 2 or 3 weeks.
