    Wow, 3 crashes and it is only October! You may be getting to a point in the aging process to ease up a bit. Not to slow down necessarily, but to save on the costs of damaging bike and body. There is a crapload of danger in slow-speed maneuvering.🏥 🚴‍♂️

    How many miles do you have on your ebike?
