i've dropped every bike i had. 2 in the street and all the time in the dirtbike.
ninja 600r ladie pulled in front of me while i was doing 45mph and had to jump on the brakes and slid awhile then it dropped on its side. 2nd was my zx9r ninja and that was cold tires and slick corner.. mild lowside was the result.
Dirtbikes?? Your supposed to drop those , arent you? hehehehe

My exact answer too. I guess that counts anyways. I always hated those knobby tires on pavement, oh and hidden ruts.

i layed mine down only cause someone dropped a paint can in the middle of the road. and as soon as my tires went over it i lost all traction cause it was fresh and wet. however, i was only going 20 miles an hour cause i was starting from a light. no matter how many things you do right and how careful you are.... it is usually someone ELSE who does the stupid thing.
