It will happen to most of us at least once in our lives. happened to me once so far. Anyone else?
Last bike I dropped was my 1996 ZX7RR - after pushing it up and down the street and it still not starting, in frustration I kicked the kickstand down and dropped the bike onto it and walked away - and as I walked away I realized it was on an angle and it tipped over! Broken rearset and left handlebar.It will happen to most of us at least once in our lives. happened to me once so far. Anyone else?
there are two kind of rider ones that have been down and ones that are going down.isn't there a saying "its not a question of are you going to drop you bike. Rather when are you going to drop your bike". Everyone i know has dropped their bike at least once. Some of them did it on their old bikes while they were learning and some have done it on their current bikes. Also to answer the question i dropped once also and it wasnt my bike.....luckily nothing bad happened to the bike as i feel at a really slow speed.
Having friends there is always a good and bad thing. It was bad for me because they actually witnessed it but also good since I feel on a really rocky type of asphalt and got some really bad road rash and my friend's gf was there to clean my wounds and bandage me up. Stupid me wasn't wearing any leathers or helmet. Just shirts and shorts since I wasn't really riding that time, just testing out my friends bike.I don't count off-road events as dropping a bike, just part of the overall experience. With that, I can say I've only ever dropped a bike once. Thankfully, just a stupid, low speed thing that really didn't damage anything but for my ego at the time. There were three or four buddies there to witness it.
