Me too and if there is water and/or mud, I walk the trail first to find the best line. But there is always the possibility I could lose my bike or more. I am aware of it and accept the possibility.
Last year was a bad one for me. I dropped the bike 3 times, twice on grades with the top of the bike downhill. I was able to muscle the bike up but I don’t know how I did it, desperation I suppose.
