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.
LOL. You can't even tell it's been dropped. I suck so bad with this bike but am having so much fun.

Dropped mine the second day I was concentrating on switching to 2nd and when I saw I was going for the curb I stared at it instead of looking through the turn I hit and flipped over the handle bars to make matters worse there was a Pasadena cop at the light and he saw the entire thing haha

Took me 6 months to drop it.. When I realized that I was gonna go down my first thought was "I can't believe this is about to happen, my bike is pristine". Thats actually about the only thought I had cause it happened so fast.

Bike(s):
2007 Yamaha R6 Raven
1980 Honda XR80 (rusting away in dad's garage)
2005 Honda CBR (babysitting)







1st time: 3 weeks after buying my R6, I fell over on my left side backing down the driveway. My first thought was "My friends were exactly right, I'm glad its a used bike not a spankin' brand new one". Plus, my leg broke the bike's fall.

2nd time: at a Harley Bikini Bike wash in Sugarland, I dropped it while parked in the middle of a bunch of cruisers - the kickstand wasn't extended fully. I felt like an embarrassed douchebag among all the Harley dudes.

I think you were still on it when the tail touched the ground. That's how you broke the end off of my bike.
