An answer to my question in the ride thread. So how did dropping the bike break your wrist?
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Why is it so hard for us to just let go?

Yikes! Talk about adding injury to insult! I hope that you heal up quickly.

I got rear ended earlier this year on my Versys. Low speed but enough to throw me off the bike since they popped me right int he rear tire. Bike popped a wheelie I held on to the grips, managed to land on my feet on the left side of the bike. The bike started to slowly go down and I was still holding on. Tore my rotator cuff. Next time I'm letting it drop.

Best part was the guy stopped behind me, Im all over my mirrors at red lights. I was like "whew he stopped" then he said I disappeared and tried to run me over to beat some traffic....

just let the thing fall over
