When in Japan and renting a Sportster with the weird low handlebars and some crash bars, I was turning around in a road with some light dirt and the damn thing slipped out from under me. I don't drop street bikes, hardly ever. Of street bikes I've owned or ridden I dropped my Eliminator (first road bike where I pulled a rookie) and when I took over my dad's K1200LT I dropped it once turning around in an off camber parking lot and then I totalled it another time. I'm not including dirt or race track times. Those bars on that bike kept it from falling far and no damage other than some scratches to said bars. Couldn't even tell it had been dropped.
