Yes, that would me. While on a ride with a few buds to the coast this weekend, one of the guys just had to stop to take a piss. We all pulled over in a turn out which was on a "ever so slight" down hill grade. I figure the stop would only take a few minutes. I left the motor running. As I was draining my tank in the bushes, I heard the crunch of my bike hitting the ground!!! "F***"!! The vibration of the motor running had made the bike slip off the kick stand. The back turn signal sprung back into place after being bent 90 degrees. They may be ugly but they're tough! The left foot peg was bent. The worst was the clutch housing put a nice dent in the tank! DUMB ASS!!

I like the looks of the handle bars being close to the tank but will be looking into putting a 1" riser on the bars....just in-case this is not my last brain fart!

I have learn to try to make an opportunity out of a crisis, a custom paint job may be in the works a bit soon than I had planned.

OUCH! I can't imagine that sick feeling in your stomach! Glad the damage wasn't any worse. Sounds like a great excuse for custom paint!

Mine is not as damaging, nut could be reason enough for that custom paint.:D
I left my shades hanging on the bars then turned the bars, putting a 2" gouge in my paint.:(

Mine is on the rear fender. compliments of my son throwing a football in the garage. Just a scuff, but it's noticable enough to me, though not nearly as bad as x-tremephoto!

Mine was my Girlfriend wanted to help take off the reflectors. she thought the magic erasers would work to take the tape off that was still stuck to the finder. NOT a good idea. took the clear coat off and put fine scratches in the pant. buffed it out as much as i could. can't tell unless you know what you are looking for but i see it everyday.
