Probably most of us have done that at one point, or several points. Eventually you'll get used to the top-heaviness, and you'll learn to be conscious of the ground surface when stopped -- dips or holes that mean a longer reach, sand or leaves that will make your foot slip, etc. After I dropped my first strom for the 3rd time, I lowered the bike 3/4" (longer dog bones in the rear and raised the forks in the triple clamps) until I felt more comfortable and confident. Then I raised it back up to normal and have been fine ever since.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top. I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller
