Is there such a thing? I have heard on more than one occasion, someone say/post...It's not if you have a wreck of some kind on a bike, but when. Last week someone wrote in the first 5000 miles if you haven't had one your lucky or one of the few. Not exactly that but something like that. Then this weekend I met a older guy that had 250k miles on his bike and it looked like it didn't have a scratch on it, and he rode every one. So that got me to thinking. How many of you have never had an indecent on a bike and how long have you been riding. Myself, I'm closing in on 1000 miles so far and nothing. I came close when I first got it. I went on a ride up the road and back and when I got back, I pulled the bike into the shop, turned it off, and was looking at things on it. Doing that, I never put the kick stand down (jiffy stand for you Harley guys), then went to hop off and over she was going. I was able to not let it go all the way but boy was that a surprise. I have laid/flipped/jumped/rolled/wheelied/etc some dirt bikes but your supposed to do that. That was the old days. I did have a smaller 250 Honda street bike and never scratched it.
