Twice, both low speed stupidity. Once on delivery, when I jumped on it not knowing how to ride and....well....I kinda forgot to put a foot down quick enough at a stop sign on a back road. That sucked. The second time, I was going backwards down my friend's STEEP driveway and as I was walking backwards my left pant leg got caught up on something, I don't know WHAT!, but over the bike went to the left. I managed to hold it up and save it from any damage, and then just get up next to it and push it straight. Good thing the motor wasn't hot...I had my hand all over it. :D

ok i am really clumsy so i have had a few mishaps. i dropped my bike into my fiances car one time, car=1k in damage, bike=0, for my next act i was warming my car up, fiances bike is parked in front of mine, clutch slips out and car jolts foward, foot peg punch huge hole in my bumper luckily it is where the front license plate goes so a nice vanity plate covered that right up. car=0 bike 1 point. got off balance trying to turn the bike around in the garage and it fell over and i tipped it over at a stop twice since i've had it. i was really embarrassed. anyways its been a while since she fell over but to date zero damage, i think ducs are cosmetically indestructible.

I've had two. Once was because I didn't know that there is a film on a new tire that is extremely slippery!! And the second was when I was warming up my bike and taking a leak and it rolled off the kickstand.

Add my name to the hat for a total of three times, once in wet grass with my dad's bike a 83 cb1000 F what a tank, twice on the old 91 VFR ,some old lady ran me off the road , car in front and rear and she decides to come into my lane honked the horn and all she never saw me ,once off the road I hit some pea gravel and BLAM through me for a loop. I had on gear so no damage to me but rashed my left side fairings pretty good :a2 . I hate to admit ........but acting squidly also caused me to drop it .....trying to show off for my sister and her friends :eek: , that was the first time and the last.

...so I use that as an excuse, when really I was just not paying attention to what I was doing.
But I've gotten used to it myself and I have a bike with a low seat height, so its all good.
