one of my buddys just smacked another one of his bikes down (this probably is #10 for him...)
so this got me thinking, is anyone else a serial crasher?

me:
-gs500 - slipped on sealcoated parking lot
-sv650 #1 - tucked the front when cut off in a parking lot
-yzf600r - lowsided on the onramp next to my house (cold tires)
-aprilia dorsoduro - tboned by a bicyclist. didn't go down.
-sv2 - lowsided in a parking lot doing ARC
-sv2 - threw it away and ran off at a stop sign when i saw someone sliding into me (of course they missed...)

-lots of minigp crashes but those don't count

I may be a serial crasher. I've been in 3 accidents (auto) but none of them where my fault. I just happen to keep getting hit.
i'm probably at about a dozen with cars. but those are over a half million miles so the average is still bearable.

if this thread gets any bigger I'm going to deem the Grom as the mark of a serial crasher ;) AHAH just kidding, it seems the type of guys into the grom are heavy riders, with heavy riding comes casualties (bikes not riders) I'd say for the amount of riding you guys do it averages out just fine...

something that most dont like to admit. Better question is who has never crashed/dropped their motorcycle or gotten into any sort of accident.

I think I'm a serial crasher on my mountain bike. I always push beyond my ability. Hopefully, that doesn't transfer over to my motorcycle. I just started riding it this month. So far, I've managed to keep wheel-side down.

that's like being a crasher on a motocross track, it's just a part of the sport

I cracked up a bunch of cars when i used to work for dealerships back in college, at Ford it was 4, always big F series pickups, although one of them was a twofer, backed the bumper of a 250 into a Fusion and crumpled the hood like an accordion :D. At BMW I cracked up two of our loners but that was during hoonage in the parking lot with one of the techs...

Luckily I owned none of them LOL... Bikes not so much, but I'm in the 50 mile club, hopefully Grom changes that for me :D:D riding not crashing LOL

yep, about 60k in 7 years. the first 5 were within the first 2 years of riding

as for the bicyclist... i stop downtown at a stop sign, and receive a hard hit to the right side from a dumbass on a mountain bike riding the wrong way down a one way street on the sidewalk. i struggle to get the bike upright and was about to start swinging, but by the time i had the stand down he was cranking down the wrong way again like INS was after him...
definitely washed blood off my barend though, so serves him right :)

First bike - 77 CB550 - Never down
Second bike - KLX250SF - Down 4 times, only one of those was above 5mph

1. First time riding off-road with a friend on a TW200, was a little nervous about this downhill. Finally made it but then grabbed a handful of front brake to stop and down I went.

2. Still on street tires tried riding around my driveway light snow and hit a hidden ice patch.

3. Accident, riding a little too fast for the road panicked and washed out the front with too much brake.



4. Riding across a snow covered field slowly but got a little too cocky and hit some ice.

I ride 15-20k per year (and have for 5 years now) and I haven't gone down on asphalt. I've gone off plenty of times in dirt, but that's entirely different... heck, when you're trying to climb a steep hill with muddy tires on a supermoto you're just asking to take a dirt nap.
