A friend and I were stopped at a light on Bay Area in front of Bikini Beach when everyone was leaving. He was showwing off to the girls next to us so as the light was right about turn green i reached over and slapped the kill switch so i could take off and leave him stuck, but didnt realize i was in 3rd so i went about 5 feet and klunk she stalled cranked it up and went another couple feet stalled again.

I was riding on a wet surface and the thought of taking advantage of the low frictional forces that characterized the situation to slide the rear tire sprung to mind. It was incredibly fun for the first two times until I went down when i couldn't straighten up the bike.
but the embarrassing part came when a a girl pulled over and asked another driver to help me pick up the bike. In the previously materialized event, I'd broken the engine the engine over and the road surface surrounding my bike was covered with oil and water, when i attempted to exert a force to pick the bike up I was just pushed
Good thing this happened at night and I was wearing a helmet because nobody recognized me.

One time I was heading home on my old zephyr. The throttle stuck after I went full throttle to get around the truck that was being a jack . I handled that fine. Hit the kill switch and clutch and coasted into a gas station. I then got it unstuck. So to make sure it was good and started it up. Forgot it was I. Gear and promptly fell over. Awesome!

Hahah! This happened to me countless times, but luckily the worst I did (before I ditched it) is break a chip off of the front wheel fairing. Backing out the bike ftw
