OK, how about this ..... that about 1 out of 5 times I go to the garage and get all ready to go for a ride, jump on the bike, hit the start button, only to realize that the key fob is still sitting on by bedroom bureau. Kinda makes ya feel a little 'tupid!

Not taking the primary locking tool out after doing primary work a few months back and scratching my head as to why it won't start afterwards. Didn't take long to figure that out. You did say this stays between us right? 😉

I dropped a derby cover screw inside the primary. Since you can't see inside there, I glued a magnet (stolen from the back of a refrigerator magnet) to a zip tie and fished around for two hours until it attached. If you ever saw a chimpanzee putting a stick in a hole to catch termites, that was me, except the chimps are better at it than me.

After a long winter with lots of work done on my bike, the last stretch to button it up and hear it running again seemed like the longest. The day comes I get the tank on, fuel in, just need to drop the seat and test it all out - and that's all I did, was drop the seat on as I had it off all winter with the battery out and only rested it on the bike to adjust my apes after replacing the bushings. I started out slow and steady and at the end of the block decided to pop the throttle a little, only to feel my butt slide back with the seat between my legs. Putted back the garage and now I think I am probably tighter than I need to be on that seat bolt.

Completely remount the rear wheel and put the bags back on, start the engine, click down to 1st, release the clutch, no movement.
Look over at workbench, there's the belt.

Way too many to list; can I have a while to think about it? Maybe I'll pick the top 2 or 3 :-)

Back in high school I put a clutch in a VW van and forgot/didn't know to take the clips off of the pressure plate after bolting it to the flywheel. All back together and no go.

The fix was to put a non van rotor in, and rev the crap out of it. Clips slung off and all was well.
