If you or anyone else puts a disc lock on your bike...

ALWAYS remember to remove it before taking off.....

you will look even sillier rolling from a dead stop

Riding tip #3: When you pull into your friends garage and park you motorcycle next to her husband's $20K bike, make sure you put your kickstand down before leaning the bike over...even if you are distracted by them telling you how cool you look on your motorcycle.

Now I never ended up dropping the bike onto his but maaaaan was I close....whoopsie

Flower power! I was going to get the new extreme flower out of the 04 line, but didnt look good in person

hey when I took off with both locks engaged, it didn't really hurt, because my teeth were already hurting like crazy. the bike didn't even fall over... it just leaned on the meter. I however went over the windscreen and landed pretty hard...

Yeah my front fender has a piece missing from when I forgot about my disk lock. At least I didnt try to ride off.

I think they make noisy disk locks that double as an alarm for forgetfull people.

I nearly killed myself with a front disc brake years ago.
spent the night at friends house in old town, woke up with a hang over the size of Texas.
It was a very pretty day, around 10:30AM. Tons of people out in Old town.
hop on my FZR600, trying to be cool with a quick take off, half a wheel rotation later my balls were smashed into my back pockets. proceeded to slide up the tank, break my wind screen, and vomit in my helmet as i fell over with my bike.

the ride home was terrific on the beltway. I had to keep my visor open as much as possible. fortunately, I had slept with my contacts (good old hard lenses) to make seeing as difficult as possible for myself.

when i got home i threw out my kick ass Bell helmet.

i have never used those locks since. too dangerous for mr. happy.

Haha! Did this a few years ago on my Gixxer 1k, about a month after I bought it. Broke up the fender a bit, but nothing a little crazy glue couldn't fix. After that I chucked that bitch (disc lock) into a pond and swore them off. Fast forward to Daytona 2003. One of the guys I was down there with insisted on using one and chided me for not doing the same. Long story short one night we parked across the street from the big harley dealer/arlen ness area. 3 sport bikes, and tons of hogs and their riders. What cooler way to show off for all of them then to get on our bikes and tear out of there with our loud pipes screaming. We gear up, start up the bikes, and off goes my buddy. Made it about 2 feet, clunk, nuts on the tank, then he's rolling away from the bike as it topples over. Superglue fixed the bike, but the pride was deeply bruised.

ALL these stories had me laughing but I think Matt gets the AWARD.

Throwing up in your helmet?!?!?! I always wondered if anyone had done that....uck
