Dropped my bike the first day I brought it home, later that night after coming home from work. Then gently laid it down doing a burn out at a stop light in front of four women in two convertibles. I paniced, bike started turning to the left, I laid it down, severely pulled my hamstring, blaimed the injury as work related, stayed @ home the following week feeling like an imature, rookie, jerk. But look at me know............... a trained professional...........LOL J/K
