I am NEVER posting that vid.

I think I might have deleted it out of embarrassment anyway.

Did this a couple months ago and barely saved it but my Gilles rearsets decided they wanted a chunk of my shin as a sacrifice for sparing my bike

O i know lol and the pattern on them is pretty aggressive so it wasn't exactly gentle with my skin either. I'm ok with it tho since my shin getting cut up doesn't require me ebaying to repair it lol.

Backing the bike out of the garage (from the right side) having both feet get caught on an open tool box drawer(lowest one), the bike falls ON YOU and you're trapped.
Bad part is I couldn't stop laughing long enough to call for help.

This got me at the Ridge Weds when I was unloading my bike at the begining of the day, I thanked my truck bed walls profusely for catching the bike and then me.

Once while lubing the chain on my mx bike, I was leaning it over on the triangle stand so I could spin the wheel with my foot. Well I leaned it over too far and the triangle stand loses grip and bike falls toward me, I go to catch it, and instead somehow get my hand caught between the rear fender and exhaust pipe and the bike yanks me down to the ground by my wrist while standing next too it. Yea, I'm tarded.

#1,000,000: Be half-on the bike putting on your helmet when the ferry hits the dock much harder than usual. Bonus points if it's the day of the Governor's Run and there are about 200 motorcyclists on the ferry watching this. Extra bonus points: Bike falls against the side of the ferry trapping your leg and you have to wait for another biker to dismount and come help you. Supreme bonus points: At the barbecue after, a small child points out in front of the assembled crowd, ”Hey! You fell over on the ferry!"

Decided to back into the garage one day and then popped it up on the center-stand like I often do...

Apparently I backed in too far and the top case hit the wall. The bike stopped dead, dropped off the stand, and fell away from me. I managed to catch it right at the point of no return. It was too far over for me to lift it back up, but I couldn't set it down because my brother's motorcycle was in the way; I already had to repair that bike once after I low-sided it and he had it up for sale. A neighbor driving by heard me yell for help.

That is not okay. Should be shared with the world. If there were video of the time I pulled up to a hotel, thought I put the sidestand down and discovered I was mistaken it would be public domain.

I aim to please. Also, now that the event is 19 years in the past, I can finally talk about it.
