I have dropped 2 bikes. First time was back when I had my Kawasaki MeanStreak. Pulled into Yankees, parked in the grass...the grass was wet, my foot slip and down she went. The second time I dropped a bike was this weekend at the LSR on my Goldwing. I was about a block from the Strand, backed up to the curb. Road was very uneven and when I put the stand down, the bike was still pretty straight up. My intention was for the wife to get off then put it on the center stand. Well, she couldn't get off while I was still on it. So I sent to get off. No sooner did I start to lift my leg up and down she went. Got lucky that it didn't hit the bike next to me. And I was surprised that I was able to pick it up by myself.

I dropped mine at the track. It was lowered and strapped. It sat straight up on uneven ground. I was going to check the rear air pressure. It started falling and I only had a grip on the tail light. Too stand it back up would have ripped the light off. I sat it down so carefully. It still scratched it.

see, i don't get why people do that. it's like they're trying to put you in danger on purpose except this time their weapon is a car.

I was in a hurry to go meet some friends one night so I hopped on the Mean Streak and fired her up then realized I left my phone inside. I jumped off to go grab my phone and I had apparently already put the kickstand up. I eased it down as slow as I could. Man I was so at myself that night.

third time was leaving the house, still in the garage. Still not sure what happen, I sat on the bike, and them I was crawling out from under it. No damage to bike.

Got MY first dent in the nice clean still sporting factory paint tank doing plugs and knocke that off the work bench. It still me off when I see it.

Same here kinda, had the bike on a rear swingarm stand that used pads instead of spools. I was wiping the chain down when it started to go. It was a slow and pain full fall. There's not much you can really do any attempt to try an dsave it is gonna cause more damage.

Luckily there was a 5 gallon bucket sitting next to the bike, the clipon and the mirror were saved by the bucket, but I have a nice tear/crack in the upper fairing where the edge of the bucket caught the weight of the bike.

Ok - to clarify - are we saying "dropped" as in "overbalanced in the driveway and set it down gently" or dropped as in "seriously screwed up and bike needs bodywork"?
