I was standing in hot pit lane with Mike Sanchez and John Haner... I'm not quite tall enough to plant both feet firmly so I had one foot on the peg, the other on the ground... I got hit by a gust of wind and it knocked me over... embarassing.

I was 15. I had bought a new Suzuki 90 trail bike that you kicked a lever and it would shift from high range to low range. A friend an I were sitting in a vacant lot bsing. I had laid back on the seat with my legs and feet over the bars, with it on the kick stand. We finished telling lies or whatever we were doing and got ready to go home. I raised my right leg to swing it over the right bar and the bike fell over to the right side. At the same time my leg cleared the bars while going down fast, it happened. My right knee was between the grip and the front brake lever. The front brake lever was driven under my knee cap! Let me say this about that, it hurt like who would have thought it. Back then in the olden days, there were no cell phones. My friend Marc had to ride to a 7-11 a few blocks away, while I was crying like a little girl and call my mom who had to call an ambulance to come and get me. Knee surgery, 8 weeks on crutches, all good now, never did that chit again.

Two weeks ago I was leading a Honda CBR1100XX ride on 336 and blew a corner. I held it till the gravel, stood the bike up working the rear brake and “kissed” the guard rail. I never hit the ground but it put a huge bruise on my leg, cracked the upper fairing and got some nice galvanized scuffs on the side fairing. It did slow down the group so everyone made the corner. Oh well, take one for the team.

I was about 100ft behind someone that did that very dance last year at TWS (Texas World Speedway). He went off the left chicane into the mud came back across just after the right chicane and went on slippin' and slidin' and looked like he was going to make until a big splash and a dump in the mud. Might have been your runoff.

i was stopped at a stop sign about a year ago, and let off the clutch a little too much. needless to say the engine immediately died. fortunately i was able to start it right back up. i've stayed off that road since though, for fear someone might recognize me.

i dropped my bike on the right side trying to back it into a parking spot one morning at work. 2 cars were pulling into the parking lot (riders of course) and saw the whole thing. they both got out and laughed while i picked up the bike.

the only other embarassing things that have ever happened to me on the bike has only happened a couple times but it makes me feel like an idiot. i'll be next to a car and i will take off from a red light real fast becuase it's a honda civic with a big ghey muffler or a hot girl sitting in the passenger seat, and i'll get up to 8 grand in 1st and pop it into NEUTRAL instead of second and bounce off the rev limiter as the car passes me up. d'oh!

No, I do that a lot...so much I've just stopped signaling. F* it any way, cagers don't signal, why should we?

Didn't happen to me but to a buddy of mine. We both pulled into a parking lot and he got off of his bike and just started walking. I hear a loud thud and see his bike on the ground. Dude got off of his bike and assumed his side stand was down.... it wasn't.

About 2 years ago.....

I was in a lot with some KingCobra stunters and a friend was giving me tips on how to stoppie. Anyway a group of chicks drive up and park and I was showing off and looped a stoppie at 30mph, went over the bars and the bike landed on its side. It did not impress anybody lol
