I don't recall if someone else posted this already, but how many people here have been sitting at a stoplight when someone you know goes riding/driving/running/walking/whatever by and you wave at them, then suddenly you're fighting to keep the bike upright because you waved with your left hand? I've done that at least once.

Modular helmet while dipping Skoal = yuck! a few times.

After a kick ass day of riding back roads, pipelines, and trails a good portion of the time on the back wheel only, but waited until I left my buddies house with a full audience to flip it over backwards on the pavement.

Drunk, traffic light stop, neither foot down, Laugh-in special fall over.

Done the left petcock on reserve push to the nearest gas station a time or too as well as stopping putting a foot down only to find down was not available until the bike was down too.

Most recently, BRP at sunset, coasting thru the scenic overlooks watching the horizon for the best photo ops. The first several were like pull thrus at an RV park, the last one however turned abruptly back to the parkway and down I went, no audience thankfully, only a scratch on the crash bars, and some bruised ribs.

So many more, so little time right now...
