I dropped my fcuking bike. Ugh!!!

I have read numerous articles about people dropping their bikes or crashing. I have always felt for them, but I never thought it would happen to me. I live in Portland, Oregon and was trailering up to Seattle, Washington for a service. It's about 170 miles oneway. I get to Seattle and have some time to kill (couple of hours) so I go watch a high school football practice. I friend walks up and says let me see you baby. As I open the trailer door like a proud father, my mouth dropped when I saw my bike on it's side. I could have kicked my own ass. I don't know how or when it happen, but I do know that I am not very happy with myself right now. I didn't have the side panels on, but I do have a large scratch on the tail section and a couple of scrapes on the nose fairing. I'm not as upset as I thought I'd be, but it has taken effect on my day. I will post pics when I get back home. I was having such a good day.

Personality is what you show of yourself daily.

Character is what comes out under adversity. (Think about that)

Happens to the best of us. Could have been worse I suppose. (like dropping it in front of a crowd).

OUCH!!!!

I am so sorry that it happened to you, I think I can imagine how you feel... was the frame damaged/scratched?

I suppose the bike wasn't secured very well, if you don't mind, when you get a chance can you give us a report on how the bike was secured and such,?perhaps we can learn a lesson here...

I am so sorry that this has happened, please let us know what you need, perhaps somebody here can help you back on the road with your baby sooner by sending you a few spare parts.

I think our ego and vanity can be bruised in situations like this, but we should remember that these bikes are not meant to be standing my itself(needs a kick stand) and it's hard to argue with 450 lbs falling over when it has leaned over a few degrees too too far.

It happenes, but it hurts... good luck with fixing it, and keep us updated.

Unfortunate...but I can relate and appreciated your advice when I watched my friend drop mine in his driveway. I've had a few drops of my own over the years. But it sounds like it could have been worse.

Sucks man. I feel for you, but it sounds like it could have been a great deal worse.
