I 'm bored again so what's the dumbest thing you guys have done. (motorcycle related). Or not motorcycle related, what the heck!!!

I was at a party, 18 years old and rip roarn' blasted. My brother calls me on my cell and tells me somebody called the cops on him for making crank phone calls and he needs my help so he didn't have to call mom and dad.

:cheers OK, hop on the bike and get down there to help my brother:rolleyes :nono . Bad idea:nono I tear around a turn in a subdivision and due to my condition:rolleyes see the gravel patch a little too late. You guessed it....lowside. All I'm thinking is my poor parents that only have two sons are gonna have one in the hospital and one in juvey in the same night. I was OK though, just a little road rash and a couple of bruises. Not bad considering my riding gear back then consisted of shorts and a t-shirt, if that.(don't worry I looked a little better with my shirt off back then):D Unfortunately the side cover got ripped off the motor of the bike and took out the pick up coils. So not only did I have to stumble to my brothers friends house dragging my own two feet I had to push the bike before the cops got there and saw that I was:cheers . So that's my dumb move.:laughing :helmet

Mine would be simular to Crazy's Although it involved my cutlass convertible, 110 mph down 83, 3 am, 4 police cars, and "cant drive 55" cranked on the cd player.

That was an expensive rough night. All though I cna say that Oakbrook has one of the nicest jails around :D :D


Yup, young and dumb. I was 20 at the time

It was the first day I ever rode my motorcycle to work - had JUST finished taking the safety course. My then-husband and I had ridden together to breakfast and met up with 3 of his co-workers. Left the restaurant and was on my merry way when I noticed that the generator idiot light on my rat Sportster was shining as brightly as the morning sun, so I turned around and went back to the restaurant to show Paul that something was up with the bike.

There was a parking spot right in front of the plate-glass window - the place was packed - and I could still see Paul and his friends inside. I shut off the bike and hopped off and did an ever-so-graceful pirouette on one leg as the bike slid ever-so-smoothly down to the ground.

First (and last) time I ever forgot to put down the kickstand!!

Of course, there's an even better story about how HE forgot to remove the fork lock on his Low Rider when we were in Key West... looked just like Arte Johnson riding around in a little circle and then tipping over!:jester

Thats funny!!!:rofl :rofl

I have another, and this was way before the movie so :mad . Another party night, around 20 or so. I remember somebody putting an glass full of everclear in front of me and daring me to drink it all. We're talkn' the big milk type glass not the tiny orange juice glass or shot glass. I had already had few beers and sometimes I get in those moods that I'll do anything after a few:cheers. So I did, and I'm told I drove over to another party where I passed out. A girlfriend of mine came and picked me up snuck took me home and snuck me upstairs to my bed with her sisters help. It was around 8am when I hear my mom pounding on my door. She said my car wasn't in the driveway.

"Dude............wheres my car???:confused :confused ":laughing

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. :bs

And that's not even getting into the crazy non-bike drinking stuff I did in college....

dumbass me got overzealous and couldn't take not riding anymore. so i took out my old honda with snow still on the ground and rode over a patch of ice at 10 mph. the thing went down and so did i. it was not in a high traffic area so i still would have had pride except for the two little kids across the street giggling at me while frolicking around a snowman. :rolleyes

Another ice crash:

Had to take the RM125 out for an early spring blast after high school let out. Second gear twisties on pavement in heavily wooded residential area (on the way to riding area).
In one curve, I hit a big ice patch too fast to react.
Bike's rear end immediately gets 90 degrees sideways---> catches dry pavement ---->launches me into a classic, painful, high side.

I went to visit a girl I was dating. She was with a friend who was visiting her bf at a frat house. We went out for dinner before we went out on the town. I got hammered at dinner, came back home and drank 1/2 a bottle of Goldschlager (yuck!). It's about 8pm now and we're back at the frat house. I never really got along w/ frat guys. No offense. Anyway, I jump into a hot tub in my clothes, come back in the frat drenched. This is where I was told everything that happened...and there were pics. I made my way up stairs and went through my gf's clothes. I put on her sparkley silver shirt w/ ruffles on. Went back down stairs where all the "guys" were playing cards and pool and proceeded to dance around my girlfriend. I ended up in the basement of the place at about 9:30pm. Everyone went out and got locked out of the frat. I woke up at 6am to my gf and her friend pounding on the door after sleeping in their car. Oh what a night.

Also, I was drunk and a buddy of mine bet me $2 I couldn't do the splits (hurdler style). I did it, got the $2, and pulled my hamstring so bad I couldn't walk. I got the 2 bucks though:D

There are plenty more...but they have been suppressed:laughing

I've got alot of dumb moves and every once in a while get the courage to admit it. So here's one Cage related

I'm 16 years old and Just started dating a girl from school. We were out to dinner and a movie that night but the fun started when I brought her home. I drove up her driveway and she leaned over to me and we started going at it. Well we got so excited that I lost my head and appearantly my coordination cause next thing I know I'm rammed up against her dad's camper in the driveway:mad . I guess she leaned over before I could get the car in park and my foot just came off the brake after that.

:rolleyes :rolleyes really really dumb:rolleyes :rolleyes
