I was on my 100cc Honda dirt bike back in junior high and decided that I was going to jump a little mound of dirt (about a foot tall), well I didn't want to fall and get hurt, so I went slow over it and well uh... I fell over the side of it

Too bad I am a blonde chick

This just happened 2 nights ago. Went to PP1 and met up with the girl i'm dating,got some coffee and decided to catch a movie. I needed gas so we went to the Chevron on Washington. After i filled up she pulled out ahead of me and was waiting for me to get in front of her. She was parked sideways at the end of the lot and i couldn't tell if she was on the street or still in the lot. As i was pulling out in front of her, a car was speeding up to the light and i figured he'll stop behind her. Well he wasn't stopping so i slammed on my brakes mid lean out into the street and almost dropped my new bike right in front of her. Turns out she WAS on the street stopped and he was driving in the next lane over. Pretty embarrassing moment.

ive had plenty of those moments where you know its true but you dont wanna look, but asking the niece is classic

i havent really had any moments, ive had wipe outs etc on dirt bikes and once on my 600, but i dont consider em embarrassing, just a lesson learned

Hm...I've done the kickstand-down-in-first stall, done the "what's a reserve, OMG I ran out of gas on my ex500 in BFE" thing, fortunately never did the kickstand-up dismount (but had a friend do it on my bike...lost a peg and a turn signal)...well, I'm sure most short riders can relate to this, seeing as our smaller stature naturally puts us at a disadvantage when maneuvering by foot a 300+ lb bike:

A couple of years back I was backing out of the driveway with the bike turned off...like all of the way out-straight into the street at a 90degree angle to the curb...and I didn't get enough momentum to roll up the upward inclined street, which also meant that I didn't have enough force to roll all the way down the upward inclined driveway. So I slow to a stop with my front tire up on the driveway, and my rear tire up on the street and my feet are dangling in the air since I no longer can reach the ground by about 3-4". I'm trying to balance the bike as best as I can but what the heck can I do but fall over. Fortunately, I broke my bikes fall and the only contact it made with the pavement was with it's huge stock exhaust. My neighbor runs over and helps me pick my bike up since I don't have a clue. Lesson learned, if you're short, always turn around in the driveway...even if you have to ride through the lawn.

Nihai, that happened to me but i was pulling out of a gas station watching a cop that had just pulled someone over and some jack but me off. I hit the brakes at the exact spot between the driveway and street, my feet dangling and dropped the bike. Cop came over and helped me pick it up, looke at me, cocked his head and said "are you drunk?" lol... It was 4 am and i was on my way to work. He was cool, looked over my bike and just told me to stay safe.

Many years ago in a green and pleasant land many miles away, having a great summer evening in the park with all the other local kids (none of which had a bike), I jumped on to my Suzuki X7 and gassed it whilst turning on the wet grass at walking pace. Most graceful 'off' that I ever had. In front of the entire pre-pubescent village population.

Oh - running out of fuel on the track or street has never felt cool either -

I've done the kickstand dismount thing and trying to ride off with the kickstand down in first gear, lol. When I got my first bike I loaded it off the trailer and I was completely new to bikes and I just wanted to sit on it, so I went to go sit on it and the thing felt so heavy I couldn't hold it up. I didn't know to use the front brakes to help with the balance so I slowly dropped it while still sitting on the seat...and by slowly...I meant, I was trying to use every bit of muscle in my body to keep it up, while my sister, dad, and 2 friends laughed the whole time I went down, haha. Great family and friends...

Wow, lol, you've got me topped! I bet that woke you up, jeez. Yeah, being shorter than average can create some interesting situations sometimes.

Yeah. It was just one of those situations where I knew I effed up, but didn't want to face reality. Nevertheless, it was a learning lesson and I ensure that my kickstand is down. Oh, and also up before going into first. LOL.

I always thought that this and "the grease spot" at the toll booths was just for dumbasses that weren't paying attention. Let me tell you, it will also bite the dumbass that thought he was paying attention. That is slick!

So i parked my bike to go eat at . After a good meal came out and tried to start my bike, but the bike did nothing. Thinking my battery was dead i attempted to jump start, and still nothing. After about 20 min of trouble shooting looked at my guage and noticed the bike was in gear. DUH!

i started riding when i was 5 and can do circle burnout in the dirt or mud and had been doing it for years. so when i was 15 i got my NX125 that i rode to school i thought i could do a circle burnout on the wet parking lot. it was right after school let out, i found an opening, and punched the throttle... i made it about 180 degrees when i just threw the bike out from under me and it slid about 3 parking spaces. everyone was laughing at me but i just tried to act like i meant to do that, walked over and picked it up and left.

Oh WOW thank I wasn't the only one The first month I had my bike it seemed every turn I'd honk the horn and sure enough there was some one standing or walking at the corner.

first time i dropped the 06, 4 in the afternoon in the parking lot of the gas station with the most traffic in Sealy I pulled in, got gas, and usually i would just ride around the building when i left, but on this day some stupid lady double parked at the pump, forcing me to back out. While I was backing up i found a nice spot of gravel in the parking lot with my right foot and down it goes.....had the bike 4 months....i was ...so then the lady pulls up in her shitbox and rolls the window down to tell me "you should be careful, you could hurt yourself on that thing" my response "I've been riding bikes for over ten years, you should learn how to park that piece of before you critique others, dumbass"
