Not embarassing but I thought it was funny when I droped my bike at the gas station. I was on it filling up and had to go in side and get the change and forgot I didnt put the kick stand down.

Niiiicccee .. my most emb moment, was when i fist got the bike... goin down the steep driveway at a friends ouse after having driven it over there.. anyways going down, and after the bike went off the steep curb to the street, ..lost control of the bike like a child having their training wheels removed, and since it was only like two daysold...i let it fall on me. so not to hurt anything, two of my friend had to help me get it up ...

within the first week of me riding i ahd a hard day at work, and had hardly slept the night before. got home from work, stopped in my drive way and promptly laid the bike down on my left leg. thats when i realized teh kickstand was a good idea. so i picked the bike up, and put it down and decided if i was that tired i wold not ride. i hope not too many of my neighbors saw...

with out a doubt it was the time I dropped/almost dropped a Hurricane on the showroom floor. Dealers had just started receiving them. They just assembled it and wheeled it out on the showroom floor which was a nice highly polished/waxed tile. It was a thing of beauty, at the time.
I got on and preceded to lean it a little to feel the weight. whoops out from under me it went. I caught it right before it hit the ground and managed to save it. Hauled it back up and put the kickstand down, with my friends laughing their off the whole time. The salesman wasn't amused till I ended up buying the bike..

I must have been beet red for hours afterwards.

knew i could do a burout on wet pavement... did one at the school in front of some friends and as i rolled forward the tire got hot and hit dry pavement. bike shot out from under me and hit a parked car. the worst part... it was an NX 125... it took that bike 2 months to even get to 60mph and it shot out from under me!
