2 Street - Avoid mud in corners and old cruisers do not handle well on gravel roads.
1 Track (Big Bike) - If I remember what happened in T1 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) I will let you know.
5 Track (Mini) - 3 times I was taken out by another rider (2 of which sent me over the bars doing a half gainer into the dirt :eh: ) and 2 times trying to put the pass on Arturo's team. (I found a different corner to get around them in. :laughing6 )

To many to count on the dirt but I have been wrecking things with 2 wheels since I was about 6.

Wow this thread makes me feel so much better! Not because everyone has fallen but because I had my first nasty fall about 3 weeks ago. I am new to riding and was aprehensive about getting back on. Now I know it happens to the best of them but you don't let it stop you from riding.

1st time my n00bness got to me going around a corner too hot. . . small lowside in the grass. My fault.
2nd time pulling out of my old shop. Guess there was oil on the front tire. As soon as I squeezed the front brake tire washed out. My fault.
3rd time the dealer decided to set my tire pressure at 50 fkn psi. Pulled out on a cold tire and highsided. They shouldn't have set it NEAR that high, and I shoulda checked before getting on the bike.

2 times on the street
1 was my fault. I entered a corner that had some water running in it and I didn't expect that. The corner was a blind one so I couldn't see it until full lean and I lowsided it. I only had my gloves and my helmet on at the time. I was only going to eat down the road. My bad.

The other time was a whole nother story though.
Posted from my website:

While riding my wife's motorcycle in Arkansas on a road known as the pig trail, I was struck by a vehicle. It was a nice day. It was pretty warm as I remember. I was riding with the Texas Sportbike Association. I was not leading the ride as I normally do but I was second in the line of 5 other riders. I was riding 2 up with my girlfriend (now wife) when we got to stopping/turning point. We would always stop and wait for everyone to catch up when we were about to change directions or get on a different road. So we sat and waited for about five minutes waiting for 2 members of our group to show up. I asked my wife to hop off the bike while I went back to check up on them. I was always concerned with our fellow riderís safety. So I head back down the road about 3 miles and I see that our 2 riders were ok and coming along. I waited until they passed before I turned around. I did my u turn then proceed to pass them while heading back. That turned out to be my fatal mistake. I passed them with ease and was riding along up front when a car decided to turn in front of me. I remember seeing the white Mercury Cougar coming down the road. I donít remember hitting it though. The car decided to get into the oncoming lane to decelerate before making the turn. I just happened to be in that lane.

I stuck the vehicle just to the left of the driverís side headlight. I flew into the air striking the windshield and then bounced a total of 156.9 feet to my final resting spot.
I got beat up pretty bad.

The injuriesÖ
∑ Broken left arm
∑ Broken right arm
∑ 3 Broken ribs
∑ 3 Broken vertebras (T4, T5, T6)
∑ Punctured lung
∑ Collapsed lung
∑ Punctured colon
∑ Broken pelvis
∑ Gallbladder failure
∑ Fluid on the lungs and heart
∑ Torn
∑ Torn colon resulting in a bypass via ostomy.
∑ Thumb tendon replacement
. Paralysis at the T3-T4 level (Complete injury)
∑ Recently added: Reproductive damage (artery)
∑ I think that may be allÖ lol.

Other times were on the track and there are too many to list. Especially on the mini racing. You seem to throw those on the ground just for the fun of it..lol.

Once in the HOV lane. Flying 20" chrome rim (with tire and hub assembly attached) came at me from the oncoming lanes of traffic, knocked my handlebars away from me! :BangHead: :BangHead: I don't consider that one my fault.

to many on the dirt to count.
this is dirt but on a streetbike i lived in dayton and there wasnt much to do.
i was 16 and had a 79' cb750f not street legal but it was fine for the backroads and pipeline when dry. lowsided in a ditch no gear at all the lord was with me that day. i was going about 70mph.
3 time dropped my 98'vulcan800 at a stoplight foot slipped on oil.
havent dropped my 06 r6 yet but its inevitable just keep my gear on and hope the lord is with me on that day too.

1 time - my fault

I had my bike for 2 days and I thought I was the with a brand new R1. Around midnight I saw a bada$$ GTO at a red light and he liked my bike and talked it up so I asked if he wanted to run.

We did, I lost him turned around to find him and turned back around to realize I needed to make "that" U-turn RIGHT NOW. Going way too fast with about "0" skill, tried to slow as much as I could but didn't make the turn, luckily I hit the curb going about 3 mph so I laid it down as soft as I could.

Scratched mirror, lower and upper fairing (barely noticeable). First time trying to pick up a bike, sucked...but adrennaline and the embarassment of him seeing me if I didn't hurry got it up on the second burst.

Been down a bunch of times in 30 years, mostly on the track, but 6 times on the street. Twice I was rear ended, the other 4 times were my fault, once was sand on the road, the other three times were from excessive speed.
