I'll go first. Not me.
Not yet, but ... now that the subject's been raised ... probably very soon :eek1
cant say ive done that one
Damm, Not me, Honest all I did was put my helmet on it
Nope not me.
Grok <===== He's Lying.
Not on the street but I have in the dirt. The latest was a slippery moss covered low water crossing, had me going backwards before I finally dropped it. No biggie, the protection works as advertised.
No...i mean not yet!
Do you mean a singular event? Where the bike assumes the lateral resting position? Like 'one in a row'?
TNTC......To Numerous To Count..
But Practice Makes Perfect! [as long as my body or bike lasts that long..]
I dropped my 1150 RT a half dozen times. My 1200 RT once and that was at a dead stop when I "forgot" to put the side stand down prior to getting off (dah dah!!!). My 1200 GS Adventure which is higher than either of the other two, especially with Ohlins, I haven't dropped yet. I'm sure it will come but I am being very careful. I was 5'10" but my doctor now says I'm only 5'91/2" with a 30 inch inseam. The GSA just seems easier to move around.
Not yet.....but only picked it up yesterday.
There are two kinds of GS riders:
1.) those that have dropped it.
2.) those that haven't dropped it yet.
Get it done and move on - gravity happens.
OH - for me, item #1 happened quite a while back.....
Dropped every GS I've owned.
Dropped mine while unloading it from the trailer on Christmas morning 2006. First time I had ever touched it.
At least I got that out of the way early.
Haven't had it long enough yet but I'm really good at picking up the RT.
Just got it so not yet, but I've already set my expectation that it's gonna happen.
Shortly after getting my Adventure in the dead of winter having some shop time I was showing buddies how easy it is to pick it up using the right technique, one buddy did fine, the second hefted it right up and over--bam! landed hard on the high-side. I had a bit of work to straighten a kink in the pannier, but all was fine. I had to remain calm and cool after this since it was me suggesting the activity. I should have known better this guy had smashed up my old R100GS's headlight pod learning to ride, and I have been in no less than 3 or 4 crashes with him driving cages, one mine. Live and learn--I mean it I learned this time.
Dropped my r1200c and should have left it there. Too much pride to drop the 1100gs. Special attention is paid, however, to the sloping stops.
Nope. I went for the GS I could stand over. Not the one marketing wanted me to get.
I have never dropped mine. Granted I don't get it for about a week and a half. After that all bets are off.
I didn't drop it on my second day, I didn't drop it, I didn't drop it, I didn't drop it. I got it up so quickly. I didn't drop it. I didn't drop it. So it doesn't count. I didn't drop it. I didn't drop it.
