Twice, both in the streets.

Once riding my Honda 50 I was in 3rd gear, WOT thru a turn. I lowsided and barely missed a curb.

2nd time I was riding my 06 GSXR 1K. Hit another biker, went down, head hit curb. Got out lucky with only a broken thumb, 4-5 stitches in right knee, and some nice road rash.

Not what I thought when I read the title of this thread.

I don't think anyone with a 50 can count the actual amount of times they have gone down.

Does falling over count?

If it does then... I dunno 4 or 5 times?

1st was my first ride on the street. I went to grab the front brake and there was nothing... I freaked out and hit a curb.

2nd time I stopped at an intersection and put the only foot I can reach with in antifreeze.

3rd time I fell over at a gas station on a ride with Bevo, Viffer, Lucar, and Craig... I wasn't paying attention and ended up on top of one of the raised cover things and couldn't reach AT ALL. I tried to move forward really quick but was still in 2nd gear and stalled the bike then fell over.

4th time was when I was hit and run in October. Some tried to hit me multiple times on the highway, I exited and got away from him and was waiting to turn right and he came up behind me and hit me on purpose. I honestly have NO idea why he was trying to hit me to begin with bc I had just gotten on the highway.... personal vendetta against motorcycles??

I think that's it... I've almost fallen over a bunch of times as well, most recently on the ride last weekend. You can see me almost fall over in Craig's video that he posted

Oh wait! if a 50 counts, I high sided a 50 at Squoddy's and fell like 8769765654 times playing 50 soccer. Fugly is one mean !

First long ride after coming back to riding I was exhausted aand not used to the sport bikr stance. Went wide taking a left turn and went into a ditch. didn't actually go down, just straightened it upp and rode down and back out.

After that I decided to practice low speed manuevering in a parking lot. Turned in to slow and tight turn, gave a little throttle and discovered some sand. didn't so much crash as fell over. Broke the peg on the shifter.

Lastly a guy started talking to me about my bike just before I was going to pull out of the parking spot. we talked a few minutes and I dcided to get off the bike, but had forgotten that I had raised the kick stand. Now that was some embarrassing shiit right there.

Once in 23 years. It was on my Kawasaki EX500 back in 1990. I just left my girlfriends work and it started raining. It was that office building right at 59 & Fondren. Made a right on to Fondren heading towards Bellaire. A metro bus made a U-turn right in front of me. Didn't even pretend to yield. Panic braked and lost traction on the rear for a bit and regained control. By the time I regained control I was so close to the bus I just slammed on my brakes and dropped it. Bus just about rolled over my head. She missed and I had no serious injuries.

That accident renewed my faith in cagers. 8 cars stopped and started banging on the busses door to make her stop. Police cited her for failure to yield right of way.

Bike was still drivable so I lucked out. It was all I had at the time and I needed it.

A few months battle with METRO and they finally paid out for all work that needed to be done on the bike and my helmet.

4 so far, and 2 last weekend alone. All on the track and all on the motards (big and small).

Not counting my one outing in the dirt, which was probably double digits.
