What is......

the most recent squidiot thing you have done (given we all do it on occasion)?

I'll start. Riding a wheelie past my buddy with a big smile, seeing a scared look on his face, me looking forward, just in time to realize the double cab F350 has just pulled into my lane...... rear brake, foul language, front brake, swerve, gas, all looking the fool as my buddy was laughing his a$$ off.

If you can't laugh at yourself or look in the mirror, then you'll never really have all that much fun, in the end.

Oh I can think of one. I was showing my friend how to ride and he chose the R1 to ride and I jump on my R1 and do some slow turns and cruise around in the parking lot, as I came to a stop to let him jump on, I put down the kickstand and was ready to get off. Well my shoe lace got caught on the prong of the kickstand and I was already halfway off the bike. So the bike tipped over and caught my leg under it.

Funny to show someone who doesn't know how to ride how to ride and you being the teacher falls and drops the bike.

My most recent probably matches jblaze's with laces on my boots getting caught on the pegs but I didn't go over. I have also had my jeans get stuck on the pegs in the past. Have a hole in them by the ankle and it got stuck on the peg. Most recent I can think of.

I guarantee you weren't the first person to catch your shoelace. I'll also guarantee that we have members who have gone over the front or over backwards in front of their friends. I'm willing to bet some of them are on youtube, because they didn't know their buddy was taping it.... We have all done it, some are still doing it. Or we would be riding cruisers or CBR's instead of ZX10's.

Riding in 20 degree weather and dumping my bike on ice. I knew better, but I wasnt ready to stop riding. Lesson learned.
