A funny story to tell?

If you think there is no graceful way to go down on a motorcycle you are mistaken. It happened in Belarus when my husband and I were staying with my family in the countyside. My relative used to have a bike (may be still does) that he got as a trade-in for an e-cigarette from his neighbour – an old Soviet beauty Izh Planeta 5… After a few attemps to start it, the bike gave in and we were on the country road, heading to a farm nearby. To cut it short, we fell going around 5mph while I was waving at the cows… The entire village was watching this epic fall!
