Funny crashes

Ok, So I was just talking about my first crash, and I thought I would post it up, maybe theres someother funny ones out there.

Second day of owning a bike, never had one before, never even ridden a dirt bike, and i was suppose to go to MSF the next day, me and my best friend rode to the mall.

As i pull out of the first spot, I punched it to hard and ran right into the mall. Luckily a tree against the wall kept me from actually hitting the mall, and the bike only had a bent brake pedal, but no friends will let me live that down.

one of the first motorcycles i ever rode was a honda trail 90. moped lookin thing but no pedals. i was 9 years old and it was in the parking lot of a condo complex my friends parents managed.

well im scootin around the parking lot kind of timid and slow, just getting used to the controls. i cant remember if that piece of had a twist throttle or thumb lever. anyway so i make my way down to one end of the lot and im making my turn to come back.

well as i turn i realize that i am on a perfect collision course with the dumpster. somehow or another i grab a fistful (or thumb full) of throttle instead of brake due to being off balance i think, and accelerated for everything that little honda was worth until i collided with the dumpster.

i couldnt have hit that thing any more squarely if i were trying to. i bounced off dumpster and then i beat the scooter to the ground just enough for it to land on me. i remember it being humiliating but it must have been pretty funny because even everyone was laughing at me.

and that was my first lesson in: dont panic when you have a throttle in your hand.

Got that beat....

I convinced a guy selling a bike to let me test ride it. I come back 30 minutes later & hand him his mirror & tell him no worries, of course I'm going to buy it.

Not my crash, but I did get to witness a great one.

Few years ago at a cycle shop in Kenner, LA I'm in there with a friend who's purchasing a bike. I'm standing outside drooling over a brand new R1 that someone had already paid for and was supposed to come in that day to pick up. The buyer eventually shows up and begins asking the salesman questions like "so which ones the brake?" and "how do you start it?". Of course the guy is wearing shorts and a t-shirt.
So my friend and I hang around wishing we had a video camera while the salesman is now giving the guy a quick lesson on how to ride a motorcycle in just three easy steps. The usual stuttering stalls commence until finally the guy can make a half- loop around the parking lot without putting a foot down. Then this organ donor is ready to head on home. He stalls a few times trying to ease out of the parking lot into fast moving traffic as the salesman is yelling "GIVE IT MORE GAS". Then the magic happens.
He hooks it up hard and does a foot down panic shot across three lanes into the curbed median. The front tire hits the curb and bounces ninety degrees skyward. All the time you can hear the motor revving because the guy is in full panic mode not letting go. Him and the bike do a nice acrobatic balancing act that gets him pointed in the opposite direction as the wheel comes down and he releases the clutch again. This sends him superman-style back across the three lanes into the gas station parking lot next door, slamming into a gas pump.
A few of us were standing outside when it happened and went running over to help when he finally came to a stop. As with all things the stupid are incredibally lucky. The guy had some nasty scrapes and a few cuts, but nothing broken. We helped him push the mangled bike back over to the dealership. He got in a car with a friend saying he would be back to get the bike later. I passed by that place several times over the next few weeks and the bike was still sitting in a corner.
I'm still amazed at how this guy zipped across three lanes of moving traffic, TWICE, and didn't manage to get flattened.

Not very dramatic, but I bet a few of you have had the same experience.
First bike, I only had it for a few weeks. Pulled in the driveway, just on the edge of the pavement. Right foot goes down...not pavement. Only the grass, which is like 6 inches lower than the driveway. Wasnt ready for that.
In what must have been really funny to see, I, with my left foot still on the peg and hands on the bars, just slowly tilt and then fall over onto the grass.
No damage done to the bike, just my ego.
Lesson learned though, BOTH feet down.

friend of mine hd just got a brand new Aprillia....the lil 50cc one....dont remember what they are called, but we were all 15 and thought it was the . Anyway he would ride it to school everyday and put one of those locks on the front brake disk. Well one day after school we were sittin in the parkin lot talkin and he was sittin on his bike thinkin he was the and when just about everyone had made it out of the school and outside by the parkin lot he decided to be mr bad and go flying off down the street. Only problem was he never took his lock off the front so he pulls in the clutch, revs it up, pops the clutch, has his two seconds of glory as the bad ridding the small wheelie then the tire hits, locks up and tuns bucking him off like he was ridding a bull. Never laughed so hard in my life.

my first dirt bike i was putting around in my driveway and in first, i was giving it gas with my feet down and pulling back on the bars to do a little wheelie.. Well i did it and came down and started falling backwards off the bike which made me open the throttle and sent me straight into my closed garage door.. I fcked that door up and all my friends laughed at me..

i went to adjust the boys at a light and bumped the bike from neutral to first. the bike surged forward, i went backwards and both the bike and I ended up on the ground. i don't know if I ever let go of the or not, it happened so quickly.
