I fell over today...

Really quite embarrassing, but I thought it was funny enough I would share.

Funny is not realizing my engine cut off as I lifted both legs and slowly released the clutch expecting to move forward from a green light

Well I guess that's one distraction the "girl" riders don't have. I'd much rather hear about what makes them drop their bikes.

Hope your are ok.

I dropped my cruiser once. My girl had made me some food and brought it in a tupperware for me. I didnt have my backpack so I just put it inbetween my legs and took off. Didn't realize that at the first stoplight as soon as I put my leg down, there went sliding the tupperware over. Just out of reaction I brought my leg back up and reached over to grab the tupperware. Down came my cruiser. Scratched up my pipes and bar end, bent my brake and clutch lever. Sucks.

Edit: I'm sure girls gotta scratch the cooch sometimes too.

I tipped over 2 weeks ago on a ride. We stopped at a gas station and as people were done, they were pulling over to the side. I moved over there, went over one of the raised tank filling covers, tried to move a little more but was in 2nd gear, went to put my foot down and couldn't reach (more than normal). I tipped over and it seamed like it all happened at the same time. Luckily I saved the bike w frame sliders and my foot.

Yeah, came in from a cold ride last year and was pretty tired. Put my foot down in the garage and stepped on an extension cord which rolled under my foot. Being tired and cold, the bike decides to have a closer look at the garage floor. Luckily I saved the bike by cushioning it with my body. LOL. Sad part is, I just finished putting new parts on after an actual lowside on the asphalt. happens I guess.

I dropped my SV after I rode 3.5 hours in the rain from Lafayette. I was stiff and sore and my taint hurt like a b* and I stopped at the garage at work to get the garage clicker since my gf still lived in La and the clicker was in my car. Then I couldnt trigger the sensor to get out of the garage... not enough metal close enough to the ground.

So I decide I am going to put the kickstand down, get off the bike... go through the pedestrian gate and use the punch code to open the gate. I put the kick stand down, lean the bike over as I start to get off and the kick stand wasn't completely locked. dropped it right there in the garage..

When the bike fell the gate opened

So I had to hoist the bike up and push it through the gate before it closed since it wouldn't start due to flooding from being on its side...

Same thing here. 2nd day of riding. At a gas station. Luckily, I had pulled far enough forward that the tail only hit the front tire of my brother Hyper.
I now park farther away and kick the kickstand forward twice. Just to be sure.

I hate that feeling of, "Oh , it's leaning to far. Oh , I can't stop this."

Oh, and I bought a bike with scratched up right side fairings, cause well, I was a noob... I figured I'd drop it. I didn't think I'd drop it on the left.

Oh, don't feel too bad. You wanna talk embarrassing, I dropped a Sprint ST at a busy 16-lane intersection in rush hour traffic. There probably 50 pairs of eyes looking at my sorry @$$. What was bad was that the bike fell over where there was a slope down toward the curb, which made it even harder to hoist it upright.

Didn't help either, that it fell on the right side and I forgot to flip the kickstand out before I lifted the bike. Darn near dropped it again trying to swing a leg over from the low side of the road.

I dropped my old 636 after its maiden voyage home from the dealership. I was sitting on it in the garage for a couple minutes figuring out the gauges, and when I went to get off the bike I had forgot to put the kickstand down. It landed on my leg but still broke the mirror. The guys at the dealership just laughed when I went in the next day to order a new mirror.
