Hmm, well, I still have never really had a bad fall from wheel walking in dry weather, though I'm sure John Foss is right that I would if I tried to wheel walk backwards. I don't have any scars from wheel walking, but I do have a little one from jump mounting without shin guards! I also don't have any of the jump mount-related skills that you have.

But yeah, learn to bring your wheel walk to a standstill when the cranks are approaching where you want them, and you should then find reaching for the pedals a lot less intimidating. You are right to compare this process to learning to ride all over again, but it takes a lot longer, or at least it did for me. It is definitely worth it, though.
