I'm guilty of picking my bike up from the shop and couldn't get it started.. So i go back inside and tell them that my bike won't start and i was kinda mad. Turns out when they brought it around front they left it in gear rather than neutral and that's why it wasn't startring.. So i felt like a dumass.

I had my first bike for only a few days when I stopped by a friends house to show it off. Pulled into the driveway, all 3 of his sisters, his mom and 2 other buddies were there.
Put the stand down and step off the bike. Every one is standing around checking it out and then it just fell over. (I guess the stand wasn't all the way forward and locked) I went from hero to zero pretty quick.

Years later I had just bought the Harley I always wanted and stopped by the bike shop where I used to work. As I pulled in the parking lot the front tire hit a small patch of gravel and BAM went down instantly.
Once again I had a full audience of people I was hoping to impress. FML

When I first got my F3 (just started riding) I had a really hard time killing the blinker. I would hit the horn EVERY time. It's still an ongoing joke. Every once in a while Mr Richards will honk after a turn to remind me.. so the horn one was funny to me

Again, first started riding got to the desired parking area (in front of a plethora of Vitos Galleria patrons) Also was trying to be kewl in front of the dude I had just met (Mr Richards) Bike was running, popped it into gear while looking for the kickstand.. fell over
Not really a blond moment but I felt like a tard

I got home from work and wanted to go for a ride and the bike wouldn't start!! I checked the kill switch and it was in the on position so i just knew it had to be a loose connection in the kill switch since the bike has been in the rain quite a few times. So i took apart the kill switch looking for loose wires and then called a friend to see if he knew what was goin on. He asked me if it was in gear and when i checked... it was. !! I told him it wasn't and that i found the loose wire!

As soon as I brought the Honda home I wanted to ride and show everyone. Unloaded it got all ready and fired it up to let the engine warm up. Got on pulled in the clutch put in first and clunk engine dies. Put it back in neutral started it up again and repeat. After about 4 tries I start to get angry cause I thought they must have done something wrong when they assembled the bike and the clutch would not disengage. After about 30 min and everyone coming outside to see the commotion i realized the kickstand was down the whole time.

Every now and then I click it into first and she shuts off cause the kickstand is down! D'oh!
Other than that, I feel stoopid if I bring up a wheelie too fast and have put it right back down

I'm also guilty of having the bike in first and having the kickstand down. Think I did that a couple of times the first week I got my cycle. Think I did it last week too!

Thanks for posting guys. That was a handful! I will definitely try to learn from everyone's experiences.

I am still trying to master all controls so sometimes I hit the horn sometimes when starting or trying to kill the blinkers... Feels really embarrassing...

turn around and motor off in the CORRECT direction to get to cali in the downpour.
i did something similar in my miata the first time i went out to austin with it. i was heading home and saw some town names hours after leaving that i knew were north tx-ish. at first i chalked it up to adventure and purposely taking back roads, but then i saw a sign telling me lubbuck thissaway, and my new bride at the time goes 'ok, we're lost. get us home' :P (or something to that effect). oh yeah, and top down perfect weather, hill country, perfect time


i have quite a few embarrassing bike moments, most of them get posted here :P. favorites include riding home in full gear from work on the seat of my friend's harley cause my tire got screwed, and recently when i blew by a county van that i thought my friend was driving and i got pulled over :P

i take it all in humor and enjoy re-telling even the dumbest stories... when i can remember.

I ran out of gas on 1960 at Kuykendahl and forgot my cell phone and wallet at the house. I had to push that all the way to almost cypresswood..at night. That f*cking sucked. I never realized how bad it is for people to have to walk in the street with no sidewalks, especially at night. I got it to the parking lot of Global motorsports, finished the walk home and called my old man to take me to a gas station.

I have done the kickstand move countless times. I locked my keys in the trunk at a bar a few months ago. I cant believe I set them in there while I was getting something. Had 30 or so people watching while we tried to slim jim the trunk. We did it.

Oh that... That space is just enough for an iPhone... Useles 250. One would think that since it has a small engine you would have more space for everything else... WRONG.

My worst moment yet on the bike...

Mixed in with a lot of cars, sitting at a lonnnnng red light along 290 on my way home in rush hour. On my way home from a long day and tired as , I close my eyes for a second with my left foot on the ground and my right one up on the brake. Start dozing off, and when I do I slowly start leaning to the right without realizing what I'm doing.

Finally I set my right foot down in time to catch myself but came very close to tipping over while just sitting still, and I felt like an idiot but couldn't go anywhere until the light turned green.

i like my sv's space. i can fit the tools that stay with my bike (tire gauge, allen wrench set, small pocket knife, pliers, a couple of screw drivers), a roll of duct tape, a big cargo net, and still have plenty of room left for my cell phone and mp3 player when i go in to work.
