Embarrassing Moto Related Moments

I ran off the track at TWS (Texas World Speedway) (turn 13/14) trying to pass people on the sv ended up going through about the 2ft of mud. Made it about 60 or so feet without droping it. Looked at dude that made me run off, gave him a thumbs up and at that very moment bam droped thebike in a the mud face first

Pulled into the parking lot of a bike shop where I used to work, fellin' all badass, on my new scoot.
Hit a little patch of gravel, just as I was stopping and the front washed out and I dropped it. BAM! Right in front of everybody AND next to a busy street.

I have two of them that both happened when I was around 19 and had been riding about a year.......

#1 Out riding, came to a corner where I saw two hot girls walking. I thought I'd be a badass and pull the front and ride one past them. I was ALMOST straight when I dumped the clutch. Just as the front tire started to come up, the BACK tire hit some water. The bike went one way, and I went the other. It didn't end as I was originally planning.... I rode away with some scuffs on the bike, the back pockets torn off my jeans, my "ego" bruised and two girls laughing so hard that I thought they were going to fall down. Luckily, I never saw them again.

#2 Out riding down a road with a car wash on either side in Sagemont. It was a hot summer evening. Everyone was washing their cars, boats, etc. from a long day at the beach. I noticed this big group of girls washing their boat in bikinis. I kept watching this big group of girls washing their boat in bikinis. What I DIDN'T watch was that the car in front of me had stopped to take a turn. I looked up just in time to see the trunk of the car in front of me right before I ended up sprawled out on it. That one landed me bent forks and another bruised ego.

I guess with age comes wisdom. After 25 years on 2 wheels, I now know to STOP and talk to the girls, not get in wrecks over them!

I have clicked into gear w/o holding the clutch while talking to my cuz....no falls or anything sorry

I did however see a guy (when I was pulling to Clear Lake Kawasaki) on his brand new cruiser....or near new b/c it was shiny....pull up to the intersection, look one way and then as he looked the other way just kept on leaning down he & his bike went.....he did a cool police roll & then picked up the bike before I could even stop to assist....he hauled to regain his street cred

track day at MSRC, riding my bike to get it teched, helmet on the tank, hat on my head backward. As I turned in front of the tech area, a gust of wind blew my hat off. When I tried to turn my head to see where it went while still on my bike, my hand jerked the steering, causing the front end to tuck and there I went on the ground and my helmet rolled for about 20ft. all the guys waiting for tech ran and helped me picking up the bike and checked it over. Seeing No damage to it, the lead tech said "well, at least the frame sliders work, and that's your crash for the day".
