Forgot to take off the disk lock when leaving work. Bike went over halfway then I gently laid it down the rest of the way. No damage.

Yep, I dropped my first bike! It was a 1991 CBR 600F2. I lowsided it twice. Both at low speeds.Almost gave up riding after the second. And I dropped it several times also, but that was within my first few months of riding.
