Years ago pulled into a gas station on my Harley sportster. Came to a full stop and put my foot down. My leg slipped on a little slick spot and I dropped the bike. Burned my leg just above the boot (exhaust pipe), bent the handlebars and broke the turnlight lens.

Re: well today was the day...

sorry to hear about that! "near zero mph" seems to be a troublesome speed. on the selfish tip, at least I'm not the only one that's happened to. glad to hear neither you or the bike were seriously injured.

just dropped mine for the first time loading some stuff on the tail. nothing too bad. i could hear her crying on the sidewalk. i told her it was ok, helped her up and gave her a hug. she said it was ok. i'm taking her to the Moto GP's at laguna to make it up to her. she has a crush on the respol.

Re: well today was the day...

watched a buddy do that in loose gravel a few years back. He broke his ankle when the bike fell on it. I hate gravel driveways.

Re: well today was the day...

I saw the same thing happen on Sunday during a little group ride. It was a 'zuk, but it still hurt to watch. Hope all is well with ya'.

Re: well today was the day...

Who do you think paid for the new gravel to be put down?

Re: well today was the day...

I did the same thing on my 929 about 7 years ago in college. I had my wife (girlfriend at the time) on the back and was pulling out of my apartment parking lot and hit gravel or something going about 1 or 2 mph...I was pissed! Cracked my stator cover, scratched fairing and bar end. Also saw a dumbass with a 600RR try to push start his bike while I was at my motorcycle safety course and he lost his footing and fell...so did the bike going about 2 or 3 mph! He said he did it all the time instead of buying a new battery...idiot.

Re: well today was the day...

When my bike was my friends I always borrowed it. The battery was dead and since he didn't ever ride it he never bought one. Anytime I borrowed it I had to push start it, kinda embarrasing but anyone who gave me funny looks got the "it's a race bike" shpeal.
