ive been riding for roughly 9 years. and whether its for bike not being warmed up, lack of concentration, or just wanting to be way to perfectly smooth on take off, when was the last time you stalled your bike? and were you suprised/ashamed of yourself?


btw, mine was yesterday. :upyours :beer

Last time was making a sweeping merge onto a local low traffic road. I wasn't paying attention and didn't down shift lol. Other than that I can't remember the last time I stalled. It is pretty hard to stall my bike out though.

When i had the Suzuki. Trying to pull away from the fuel bowser.

Stalled 4 times and then went "oh yeah, the stand is down"

On the grid at a track day. And before that, on my buddy's bike that he neglected to remind me had an upside-down shift pattern.

Hmmmmm I know it hasn't been too long, maybe a couple weeks, but I know it's recently. I think it's mainly just lack of concentration when it happens. It probably happens to me once every couple weeks I would say.

Couple days ago while out at night. Rolled on too gently and am trying to get used to my readjusted clutch.

never. Only in my car have I ever stalled out, and that was all in the first few months of learning how to drive it. :)

I hate it when you forget to downshift before you stop so when you go to start again it just stalls haha. That happened to me a little bit ago... but before that it haden't happened in a long time now that I think about it.

the first time I went to drive away on m ynew zx-10r. I was totaly used to the clutch on the gsxr and the zx is waaaaaay more sensitive and shorter throw.

Couldn't tell you when was the last time I stalled it, but I've done the old "stand down" trick a few times lately ... DO'H!

Whenever I ride with my Harley friends, because I can't hear my engine above their god damn pipes :)

I'll stall every once in a while, but I usually just keep rolling, pull in the clutch and fire it back up. Embarrassed? Na, I just laugh it off and be on my way. I will feel a bit of embarrassment, though, when I start off in 2nd or 3rd and have to slip the clutch like hell to keep from stalling.
