I wouldn't feel too much like a douche, it's his fault as much as it is yours. It would be one thing if you decieded to have a picnic on the other side of a designated jump, but you merely stopped on the other side of a hump. Now I'm not saying that stopping on the other side of a hump where people can't see you is a good idea in anyway. It's just that it's a common occurrence so when you are the badass rider who jumps off everything, you have to factor that into your equation.
More then anything it was just being in the wrong place at the wrong time
And yay for Oakley's
