when I just started riding I was on a Ninja 500 and I was coming up to an intersection and my throttle got stuck!! I was like "oh ****!!" I was a noob so I didn't know what to do and it was a pretty busy intersection. So I hit the cutoff switch and took the right turn. I cut a car off but I didn't get hit

When someone decided to turn in front of me with out using their turn signal. I had to put on some serious brakes and I started fishtailing. Luckily I was able to control it and didn't go down.

WOW. I guess being blown into the next lane by some fearsome wind gusts wasn't as scary as the things you guys have described.

Having my bike towed in Albuquerque for not having my visor down. Standing there, waiting for someone to offer to go home and get their car and give me a ride to the house. Ended up having to call my father at midnight and have him come get me.

That was certainly more humiliating than what happened in Burton. I was so surprised that everyone stopped and helped after I crashed.

after my shoulder surgery I went on a short ride, that went loneger. the ride was great and I had Mr. clean with me. but we were WAY the f out there. I was not physically ready to go 7 hrs on my bike after a surgery 3 months before, even though I thought I was healed up.
then the rain hit.
I was cramping everywhere, could barely hold the bike with my hands and legs. I would have got off and given it away if traffic would have let me. I hated it, wanted to trash it, walk away from it. I was so tired I could have slept on the side of the road. and it was my fault, I should have thought about how my lack of ride time and recent recovery for that time span would effect me.

Nothing major, but...

Ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere SE of Houston.
I was riding with a friend and he noticed I pulled over. I had 2 bottles of water in my trunk, we drank them as fast as we could then he took off with both bottles inside his jacket to the nearest gas station...
He came back with only 1 bottle because the other one flew off on his way over there
Put that gas in my bike and I still didn't make it to the gas station lol
He had to do another trip...

Worst situation I've gone through but funniest at the same time.
