Lowsided mine in the rain during the last session of my first trackday at TWS (Texas World Speedway). The frame-slider took most of the damage, along with the stock rearset. Then I had to ride it home from TWS (Texas World Speedway) to Clear Lake...

It really sucked seeing it slide across the track into the grass... but damage to both me and the bike was minimal.

Once, on each side.

Small dent in the tank and broke both levers... oh well those will be dealt with soon.

I completely lost count... basically, before I shaved the seat everytime I put my foot down and didn't reach the ground it fell over. Luckily I have the very best, most amazing frame sliders and dropping it never caused damage other than a set of bar-end mirrors.

Three times. The first, a drunk tried to run over me, the second, I was in a turn and the back tire hit a patch of oil, and the third I wasn't used to the ritilin I was put on and over reacted.

If you dont lay down motards, your not riding them right!

I have flipped, dropped and slid everyone of my bikes at different time of my street career. Now dirt riding, I cant even begin to count the times I have dropped them, including just saying it and bailing out when I knew it was either me or the bike.

Don't worry, scrot. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick- lives.

Dropped the motard once so far.... & honest to I was doing like 5 mph and went over a speed bump wrong. LOL. It was one of those "What... the ... just happened???" moments.

I'm dreading the day already, If i ever drop the cb750 over... not gonna be fun picking up that 500 pounder.
