Incredibly Embarrassing....8439 miles later.

  1. So I-405 this morning heading Northbound, Traffic comes to it's usual standstill at Sunset Ave.

    Now I knew this was going to bite me in the ass one of these days but a TINY thread on the bottom of my normal pants decided to catch itself in the spring of the kickstand.. I didn't realize this until I noticed that I was suddenly leaning at 1mph at a 45 degree angle...Nothing like dropping the bike in rush hour traffic :angry7: :banghead:

    Several (10) people rushed out of their cars, asking if I was alright..just said only the pride was crushed, lifted the bike up, got on, started it up, said all was fine and away I went leaving them all :shock:

    When I got to work, I looked over the left side of the bike, no damage at all thank god. I went and trimmed all of the "loose" threads to prevent this from happening again but damn.. that was seriously the most embarrassing moment, ever :angry7: :angry7: :banghead: :banghead: :angry7: :angry7:
     
  2. It pretty much happens to everyone... congratulations on getting by this rite of passage with minimal damage =).
     
  3. Has happened to me too, on the old bike thank god.

    I somehow manage almost every time to get either my jeans or my ballistic pants caught on the kick stand as I'm putting it up.

    Glad it was minimal and that was cool that many people checked on you to see if you were ok.
     
  5. Did that the first week I owned the bike in Elbe parking lot near a ton of other people who also rode. sucks but hey just say you were doing like 100 around a corner or something make it sound good it gets better!

    Not to sound like a jerk, but it's kinda funny.

    Glad it happened in a non-life-threatening way.

    Dust off your pride man. You know you're a fully capable rider. :)
     
  7. Haha, it's cool bro. I laughed it off after punching the tank bag a few times :tard:

    Something like that happens to almost every new rider at some point...:x

    This is a good reminder for anyone that wears boots with laces (you do all wear over-the-ankle boots, right?) - Tuck in the laces into the tops of the boots so they don't catch on a footpeg.
    It can actually be dangerous if it causes a tipover at a stoplight with traffic passing in an adjacent lane.

    OP - Thanks for being the example! :tard:
    Way to sacrifice for the team!:roll:

  10. Glad no one was flying up behind you when it happened. Could have been squished. I hate that section of the freeway! Glad you're ok. It is horrible when that happens. I had my pant leg get caught on my brake lever once. ALMOST dropped it.
