I pulled up into my parking spot at work and went to put my foot down but my pants were caught!! me and the bike hit the ground. Really embarrasing but only little scratches on the handelbar. so just make sure your foot is loose before you put your foot down

i dropped my bike in a parking lot the first hour i had it. i was practicing figure eights for the driving test and got spooked and layed it down.

one of my good friends saw it.

oh well, stuff happens. fix it and remember it forever so you dont do it again

I vote you all ride naked (except for a helmet of course) to avoid the evil traps of the "spikey sticking out things"

Edit: 2000 posts bitches :p

great post Rebel.

Ok guys this is pretty serious.

go to the hardware store and buy a velcro strap. Like you would use on a bicycle so you don't get caught in the chain. 2 dollars to save s 300-400 fairing.
wrap around pant leg at the ankle so it can't get caught up .

Also Always, Always, tuck in your shoe laces at the top of the boot. My Icons have a nice strap that keeps my laces in place.

oh man dude! yeah talk about embarrasing but good thing you're okay. Personally I would've started screaming like the 40 year old virgin and have people help me up instead of just looking, you know, get the best out of a shitty situation. Thanks for the tip btw, sure will remember that.

I saw really cool ones too, my aunt bought me some a couple years back that shine green and blue really bright when any light hits it. Pretty sweet. Like $5.00 each.
