Started in the dirt. Crashed within a week. Then rode street 100,000 miles without one. Then had 2 in 6 months from bad luck beyond my control. Now I crash every 6 months or so on track or dirt and occasionally get hit from behind on I-10 by drunks.

happens. So far only one injury that I care about, a separated shoulder.

Thought kick stand was down. Went to get off and fell over with it trying to keep from falling so hard. Right in my drive way with my neighbor watching.

First time I ever "dropped" my bike was months after my first bike. Went to put the kickstand down and my pantleg got hung up on the footpeg. Was already leaning and went down. This happened in my garage. Watched a buddy of mine do the EXACT same thing in my garage. I took a picture of him. Dropped my current CBR while making a u turn at 2 mph. Brake lever hit the hid ballast, locked the front tire, then it dumped. I remained standing while looking down at the bike thinking "wtf just happened?" Dumped my trackbike the same way at TWS (Texas World Speedway). Front brake lever hit the fairing stay and it dumped while pulling into the paddocks. I caught it before it completely fell. Plus I've actually wrecked multiple bikes multiple times. On the track and on the street.

Moral of the story: bikes fall, people crash, happens.

Picture of buddy in my garage.

Started out on 636 and didn't lay it over till about 6 months later driving less than 5mph on a crappy driveway with loose gravel. Upgraded to zx10 and went down at about 15mph around a sharp curve that was a little wet. That happened the 4th day I had it

When I first bought my bike, my dad I and were unloading it off the truck. He thought I had the bike and let go of it once it was in the garage. Bike fell over and broke the throttle housing. 30 bucks later, the bike was good again.

But the strange thing is that I've seen actual and video of bikes going down. I've never seen it take longer than about 3 seconds, so I don't know how it could take a fkucin month . . . .
