All of the above. . .

Dropped it one EARLY morning taking it off the rear stand leaving for one of the old SMRs

Pulled out of my stall when I was an auto tech. Had a bit of oil on the front tire so the second I touched the brakes the bike went straight down.

A track crash or few at higher speeds

Another member ran into the back of me while I was slowing down to take a left turn onto another street. I didn't go down, but they did.

I got all 4 categories covered.
Dropped my bike: Happened once, Kawasaki Mean Streak. At Yankees. Parked in the grass (which had dew on it). My left foot slipped and down went the bike.
Slow Speed Crash: At an intersection hit some gravel on a slow turn (around 15mph), was losing control. Almost had control regained when my passenger paniced and went to jump off the bike which threw us both down to the ground.
High Speed Crash: Night time on I-10, had to lay a bike down to slide under a couch that came flying off of a trailer.
Wreck with Vehicle: Was rear ended by a vehicle and life flighted to the hospital

Let's see... had the adjuster brake on my 100, no back brake on a curve in a corner covered in graval coming to a stop sign.
Went into the ditch dodging a moped that blew a stop sign and came into my lane head on.

Lost traction, lowsided in the yard.. wet grass, soft dirt.

Dodged a truck that blew a started to blow a stop light, hopped the curb. Didn't drop the bike, but bent both rims.

Hit an SuV that tried to make a left turn thinking he could 'beat' the traffic... he didn't plan on the car that turned before him, stopping in the driveway he wanted in. I personaly think that car probably helped save my .

the first day I bought a street bike unloaded it in Friendswood hauled to Beaumont area to show everyone. Jumped off a incline and a mix between landing in an oil slick and hitting the front brakes the front came out from under me and laid it down.

Few months later went to Lake Austin to stay with friends, while loading up the bike on the fcked up hills and driveway they ramp slid out from under the bike and it tumbled out.

Dropped: Backing away from gas pump because of person double-parked. Put foot down in gravel and there it went. She pulled up and told me I should be careful on that thing, I could get killed. She should be killed .

Low speed: (1) 10" of water on a 45 off-ramp, wake from previous bike came back across and washed the front end out. Chipped elbow. Full gear.

(2) Gravel throughout intersection at 1094 and 109 where I turn on my way home from work. Low speed low side. Same elbow! Full Gear.

High speed: 1980 xr80, full throttle, ditch came seemingly out of nowhere, down one side with brakes locked up, up the other side minus one motorcycle (bottom of the ditch was cupped). Once I came to a stop the bike landed on me. Full Gear. Fractured skull (helmet came off on the second bounce, still don't understand how that happened, it was sized correctly and fit fine), and Broken right arm at the growth plate of the wrist.

No incidents yet, but i'm not going to check that bottom box, it's a trap.
plenty of close calls, several times i thought "this is the one, i'm not getting up from this" but It's been a combination of luck and practice that's saved my so far.

Did a full-on faceplant when I hit ice riding in the midwest in winter. Probably only going 30 or so when I did it. Helmet saved my face.

Dumped: Came home with the rim and new tire and found the bike had wanted to take a nap lying down (yeah, didn't locate the stands well).

2 low speed crashes. First one was a week after upgrading from a Rebel 250 to a UBERpowerful (not) Shadow 600. I was turning right from the center lane on I45 feeder onto 60th street in Galveston and the pickup in the right lane turned right and went all the way over to the left (of three) lane. To avoid hitting him I squeezed the brake, but grabbed it too hard and low sided on my leg. Throttle cable was inoperable so it got towed. Had a nasty twisted ankle that had me limping for a few weeks. The second see below.

Multi-vehicle: stupidly riding in the center lane on I-45 southbound with a light mist in the air the left lane stopped and a Lexus SUV cut over into my lane, because we were still moving. Again, I locked up the front tire, but this time slid into the back quarter panel of the SUV and got a brief glimpse of the nice scratch my handlebar left before I was on the pavement. didn't stop. I pick my up and rode away. My knee was sore for a bit.

I now dodge as my first choice. I would rather lane split then lock up the brakes. Hmm...maybe I should get a bike with ABS.

Oh I have also crashed my dirt bike.

Second time in my life on a dirtbike, my new wr450f, I'm in an undeveloped neighborhood after a rain. Going about 45mph as I realize there is so much mud I'm drifting towards standing water. I give it a little front brake and the front just slide out in an instant. I literally do a flip over the handlebars. I was only wearing a helmet, but I had no injuries other than laying on the ground for 2 minutes thinking my leg was broken. THe handlebar dug STRAIGHT into my thigh, but no damage other than a bruise.
