Glad you are ok! I had a similar oops riding in the rain when I started riding. I was able to pick the bike up myself thogh.. You did say you were a big guy right? Bikes aren't THAT hard to pick up.
Yeah, I'm sure I could've picked it up myself if I had to, there were just a bunch of cars staring at me, so I didn't want to drop it again. Oh well, lesson learned.

Really though, thanks for your concern, and I too shake my head when a newbie asks for opinions on the R1 v. the Busa or whatever. I'm definitely taking it easy and riding within my ability, and I took the MSF course, so I'm not out there racing squids around 610 with my half-naked girlfriend on the back.

This reminds me of my first parking lot drop. I was in a hurry(needed to use the rest room) pulled in the parking spot at the gas station and stalled. It was more of a controlled lowering of the bike on it's side, if you will :icon_bigg

and then there was the one time when I was parking at work and lost my footing, another instance of controlled lowering.

and then getting use to the not so tight turning radius of my ducati, another controlled lowering.

and the one time at the track where I forgot to completely lower my kickstand, I wouldn't really call that a controlled lowering move, more of a drop but it happens.

Oh man I could go on but I won't, you've allready taken the msf course now you just need the seat time.

I only had my GPZ for a few days when I dropped it on it's side trying to get it on the center stand for the first time.
Also dropped my Bandit in the grass after forgetting to remove the front wheel lock - almost got a full revolution out of the front tire, before the immediate stop.

BTW - I really like the looks of the 919's. Almost bought a red one last year.

I did the same thing, with a 20 pack of longnecks on the tank. I just tried to put it on the sidestand - but I hadn't put the stand down. I saved the beers though. Now I won't drink and ride.

I was 18 when I got my first street bike, and at the time I was working at a Churches chicken shack in the ol' hometown. It was Saturday night, and I was on my way to a party hauling upwards of a 100 or so pieces of chicken tied up in plastic bags. I lost it in a corner (not sure if the chicken all shifted too fast, I hit gravel or what), but it was in the main part of town.

I fell on top of and skidded along with one of the bags;the greasy mess probably saved me a bit of skin though it hurt. The rest of the bags broke and chicken and biscuits rolled everywhere. I stumbled up and just stood there in shock for a second, staring. Without really thinking, I started picking up chicken, but there was no place to put it, so I just dropped it. Humilated, I decided to bolt and must have been a sight trying to lever the bike up with my greasy hands and all the, now empty, plastic bags tied to my beltloops and backback. There were a few people who offered to help, but I kept refusing.

I got around the corner, ditched the remaining chicken from under the bungee net and went to the party. Later that night a group came in laughing because they'd passed an intersection where it seemed every stray dog and cat within a 2 mile radius was having a feast.

I had the rear door on the garage open overnight and the garage floor had dew on it (one of the perils living on the water and having fog creep in overnight). I moved the car out (bike was behind it as it is a tandem garage). Bike was facing the rear, so I commence my multi-point turn to get it facing out. Next thing I know the front tire starts slipping and I am struggling to keep her up. My shoes are now slipping and I rest her down on the side. I was for a second, then laughed it off as it must have been comical to watch.

A couple weeks later I pull it in front of the car and park at a 90 degree angle from the door. Later on that night I get on to go out and as I straighten it up my leg touches the car and I realize that the right fairing is scraping against the tow hook on the car. Stupid aftermarket tow hooks...

Awesome story. I bet you smelled pretty interesting after that.
