Anyone else already gone down this year?

I hit a patch of salt yesterday at work and slid the back around for a 270* low side. Busted a peg on my sv-racing rearsets but I already ordered a new one from blair ;D
Picked the bike up, connected the stupid clutch plug and she started right up and took me home.

Maybe I should start a "my bike has been sideways half-a-dozen times or more club". (Yesterday was 6 for me lol. Mostly stupid drops in parking lots.)

;D

Do you find that you fall more to one side than the other? Or is it 50/50?

I always fall left. I have no idea why. lol.

ASC (mike?), I was telling my dad about that. How I'm pretty sure you've wrecked more and busted up your bike and never stop painting it lol.

Three of my drops were 0mph with either the kickstand now down, the kickstand halfway down, or me swinging the bike between my legs with the kickstand not down lol.

The three "wrecks" have all been <10 mph lol.

I still laugh everytime I see this pic, because somewhere between crawling off the ground and picking your bike up, you realized it was a great photo op. ;D
Yup. Front tire caught in the sand, and I couldn't keep it from going over... sand was just too soft. Had to dig my leg out from under the bike.

Lowsided about two to three weeks ago ~40mph at my local twisty. crushed my tank & rear plastics. dented up my pretty arata silencer. broke my woodcraft LHS bracket and bent my shift rod in twine. Not entirely unhappy as I managed to walk away without a scratch being 100% geared up.
