Dumbest Thing You have Ever done

Alright not a comptition but I'm sure we have some stupid stories floating around here.
Me: Broken fork seals and was too lazy to change my brake pads and poor. Next ride out on an unfamiliar road, my buddy makes an emergency stop so I start stopping behind him to realize hes not stopping he is turing left in front of me. I knew I had over shot the turn so I decided I would go straight, he turns right in front of me...i tried to stop, no time and T-boned him at 35 mph...totalled his bike and he hasnt been able to ride since (money reasons). So for being lazy and trying to save $60 it cost me $400 for a new rim and 13 weeks waiting for it to come in from the shop, who forgot to tell me I needed bearings! They order the bearings, I pay for overnight shipping, the bearings get there and SHOCKER those idiots forgot I needed a spacer, which they didnt order! Total of 16 weeks down..it sucked. My rates didn't go up because it was my first accident ever.

Then there was the old lets do a rolling burnout for the school bus, bike got sideways and I rolled through a busy intersection before I got the bike back under control...luckily nobody went through it or I would have been a nice wet spot on the road.

OR

The time when I tried and failed to change my own fork seals. What a disaster that was.
