Great thread. Glad to see folks are honest enough to admit one of the faux pas of riding.

OK, one of my many. On a lonely backroad of BFQuebec on my way to the Translabrador Highway I stop to take a picture. The bike is near vertical. I forget this when I remount and 'bump' the bike up with my left knee before sweeping the kickstand to the rear. I can't stop it, and the pig is now on it's right side at the crest of a hill and on the edge of a road that logging trucks seem to favor. I am so pissed that I forget to take a picture of this most worthy scene. The next ten minutes are spent trying to gain a foothold in the loose dirt of the ditch/shoulder before I finally get smart and just off load all of my crap. Sometimes the hard way is the easy way.
