Wow, that sucks man. My worst story is my wife backing down the driveway and taking out my 03 softail springer. Yes, shes still alive, but I gotta say it was fun with all the makeups she wanted to do...

My ins co wants to charge me all 3 collision deductibles, I told them to forget the truck and benz, Ill pay the dent guy for them, The bike however, did in fact hit the ground after all, and probably has about 8k of damage.

I have not done anything quite as dumbass but I did roll me bike slightly forward once while inside my garage. I don't remember why but the jiffy stand disengaged. when I leaned her over to what I thought would be a kick stand it went over against work bench. put a scratch on windshied but did not break it. .....I now have an EZUp center stand.

Just be thankful no injuries resulted from the mishap.

Folks told me I was full of piss & vinegar back then... and full of shit now.

Like I told you. What I said. Steal your face right off your head.

Nothing like that. We all have our moments. Once, a long time ago sitting on my first bike I forgot to put the kickstand back down before getting off the bike! Duh!

I ride a Road Glide. Therefore I am!

Concert in the park.....went to leave and forgot the disc lock was on. It moved about an inch, stopped and fell over, LIKE RIGHT NOW!! There was no way to stop it my feet were on ther way up. To make it worse, a kid walked up and said "you need any help mister" "dumbass move"
