Umm, motorcycle related??
I think this one may deserve a poll since I can't quite determine which one of my stupid motorcycle incidents were the 'stupidest'.
a.) Forgot to put the bike in gear while parked on a hill. Ended up rolling over and screwing up the left plastic and shifter. Insult to injury was the 2 hour 'service' I had to pay because I left the bike in the lot overnight, a big no-no in Lake Villa. Had to pay for the shop owner to come out and move it into the garage.
b.) A week after incident 'a' I was on the way home from BHF riding with a "then" buddy. When we got to highway 20 business he decided to go west on it instead of east. Unfortunately that involved crossing 4 lanes of traffic on 251 in Rockford. He decided to stop on the edge of the crowned road with tons of gravel. LOWSIDE again, again busting the shifter. Hobbled home and made my makeshift shifter. Riding buddy became "then" riding buddy after 5 minute rant on how stupid he was for crossing 4 lanes of traffic to go the WRONG way, but the lowside was obviously my fault. I think I locked up front brake instead of slowing 'slower' and parking in front of him.
c.) Crystal Lake Poser ride. Similar to incident 'a', parking with slight incline and not in gear. Damn near took out a BMW1150 (can't remember who's, sorry) and Kim's V-rod. Nasty cursing soon followed.
d.) Sport tour ride in Galena. Hick gas station with gravel and hill, two of my least favorite things. Going too slow, chopped the throttle while looking at the ground in front of bike. Bikes go where you look.. HUGE cursing soon followed.
e.) The most famous one..11:30 wheelie (not quite 12 o'clock) at Union Grove. Helluva way to introduce myself to people, eh?
Holy shit..I've dumped her 5 times in 5 months. That's pretty bad.
Now I ALWAYS park it in gear (even in my garage) and don't look down ever at low speeds.
And that's not even getting into the crazy non-bike drinking stuff I did in college....
