I was wondering a bit how worried about falling I would be while riding again, but even while hunched over in the position of impending launch, I was never actually fearful of going over the bar. More careful doing bumps, perhaps, but not afraid. OTOH, I am terribly out of shape.
Sidenote. The PTB of Amtrak are building a monstrous pedestrian crossing bridge at Kingston Station so passengers don't have to cross the tracks to get to the opposite platform. Good idea, but what they are building is so frelling out of scale with the old Victorian station that it's ludicrous.
