I've fallen over so many times... being short sucks. Especially where there's no flat ground to park on and the bike starts leaning the other way

I refuse to lower my bike. Oh well... at least people help me up.

lol i'm guilty as well. It was not in traffic but in my garage, for some bizarre reason, i forgot to put out the kickstand and well you can guess the rest. I had a good laugh at myself that day & almost dropped it again from laughing too hard while picking it up.

oh well, it indeed happens to the best of us.

My first solo ride. I decided to stay on the local streets.. Did you know the streets in the Heights are crowned???? I would move over to the right side to make a right turn..... and ... really do I have to finish that story??

Once it happened to me twice....I had to pick up the bike that was more upside down than laying flat...... again...and rode the freeway straight home!!!
I dont like streets anymore.

Awwww. Im sorry to hear. Nooo, ride the streets! Ok, fine, stick to your track.
Im surprised you can pick up your bike though.

I try and try but I cant. I cant even tug it away! (yes, I had to try to tug it bc it got it crushed in b/w my gate, )
Back when I first started ridiing on my 250, I was exiting my gates but my bike was too light, wouldnt trigger the gate to open so I had to "pounce" on the scale. When I did that, I lost control, bc I couldnt flat foot. The gate came crushing every 10 secs or so. I was helpless but even more..useless!

Yeah, Skid made me learn how to pick up my bike... never when it was tipped that badly..but hey.. I always get myself out of the trouble I get myself into....

I was kinda laughing at the pic of you having to "pounce" on your bike..... Just seems like something you need video of...eh....
