Reminds me of the first time I fitted clipless pedals to my mountain bike. Completely forgot to unclip my cleats first time I stopped. Many people laughed at me. Many.

Us shorties and the XR500's  :imaposer:
Get to a stopstreet and you either run it or need to stop next to the pavement.
If you have to start it on a sandy patch, you are stuffed. :peepwall:
Good skil to have though.

Similar thing happened with me , I pulled up at the traffic lights and my shoe lace got stuck in the gear lever , daar slet ek neer voor die twee meisies wat ek net verby gery het   :-[

Laces are a bitch... :biggrin: :biggrin:

You been there ?
Had a Petty Officer have the same thing happen when he pulled into the parking bay and bought a plot in front of all his students  :-[

been there, however on my GS750 Suzi sober but a loooong haul forgetting to put the sidestand down at a self service and getting trapped between bike and petrol pump, leg in the air  ::)  but was also seen having enough beer on the same bike, forgetting to put my foot down at a robot and slowly going down sideways.... :-[

Mate of mine had a quart of beer inside his jacket when he came off , had a few small cuts to his upper body but I dread to think of how much worse it could have been

It isnít actually difficult, not much different to a bicycle. I had to learn, quickly, before I lowered the suspension on my XC.
