If you ever...

If you ever have dropped your bike (which most of us have), how did you do it?

For me, I dropped it when moving it forward and didn't notice the kickstand went up.

After I picked it up from it's previous owner. Unloaded it from the trailer and tried to push it up the driveway instead of riding it up. Frame slider prevented it from scratching the fairings. Good thing it wasn't dropped hard.

I've dropped my bike 4x, all while traveling 0 mph
  • In the parking lot of a Waffle House in Austin TX...lost my footing.
  • At TWS (Texas World Speedway) (1st trackday) when pitting in on the grass. Again, lost my footing.
  • At a stop sign very close to my house. Lost my footing.
  • After having BRAND NEW rearsets/sport bars installed, the bike was put on it's kickstand and fell on it's own accord. I lost a piece of my clutch lever (custom shorty lever) and the end caps of my woodcraft rearset peg

yeah. Dropped my Duc ST3 when I put my foot down in some sand on the road. My wife dropped her 900SS a couple of times trying to get her wallet out her back pocket. I dropped my XL883 once when unloading it out of the back of a truck. All pretty insignificant drops, scuffed up the pegs and hand grips at most.

Changing the air filter, I pushed the tank forward to lock it back in place and forgot I'd left the bike in neutral. It rolled forward, kickstand went back, fairings got scratched. The guy 4ft away just watched it happen, then started walking away once it hit the ground. Gotta love how helpful some people can be.

How tall are you? And what kind of boots/shoes do you wear? You seem to lose your footing a lot. It's happened to me once as well in galveston. I had a friend on the back and I put my foot down in some sand at the stop sign. If she wouldn't have reacted so quick and jumped off I probably would have dropped it. Or did the splits because I wasn't going to give up lol

Yep.. Doing minor maintenance the the garage, caught her 6 inches from the floor and about blew out my gasket in the process.
Always use a rear stand when tinkering on your bike.. gaskets are a b*tch to repair!

Lets see...

I never dropped my first bike.

I laid my moatard down at 1mph in some slick as mud when I thought I could just spin up the rear and slide it through.

I dropped my ninja 250 when I ran it up the ramp to my motorcycle lift with the kickstand down and it highcentered on the peg and pushed it away from me.

I had my R1 fall off the same motorcycle lift when it settled and something I had leaning on the lift slid up and levered the bike off.

My SV650 was knocked over by the falling R1 mentioned above. 2 for the price of 1...
