Dismount Off Back

Just about every dismount I do is either unplanned or unwanted. I might suddenly loose my balance or fail to get over some small obstacle, like the road gutter.
In all of these cases I have forward momentum and so I dismount off the front.
And normally I just keep riding until this happens.

I'm finding that dismounting off the back only happens when it's planned. I basically have to slow down to a stop, tilt backwards and put a foot down.
I also find that holding onto the front of the saddle with my left hand is helpful, if not required, when dismounting off the back.
