Raise your hand if you have never done this.

Yea, I thought so, no hands up. We have all done this at least once.

That ranks up there with pushing the horn button to start the bike at a busy gas station, AFTER looking all cool while filling it up!! I quickly left before the laughter!!
Don't feel bad we have all done it:)

Guilty of that & hitting the horn thinking I was canceling the turn signal.
I do that too, or when turning the volume up on the radio! Good thing I know a bunch of people in town, I just wave like I was trying to get their attention. I look pretty stupid at 4:30 in the morning waving to no one though. Damn controls.

My yamerhamer has a switch on kickstand and it kills the engine if in gear with kickstand down. The only problem is whenI first got it it took me 5 min. one day to figure why it would not start. YesterdayIwas pulling into a parking lot with a bunch of bikes when my finger found the horn button and hit it. Its Gods way of keeping us humbel.

Fishy waves hand in air!!! GUILTY of almost all of the above.

I haven't forgotten to put the kickstand down, I've heard enough horror stories bout that!!!

I did think I was going to have to hook up a Dabney Coleman 9 to 5 Garage Opener Contraption the other day to get off my bike when I brought home the new XC! Man did my garage get tiny!

I literally started laughing out loud to myself when I read that.....I still am every time I visualize you sitting on your bike and tipping over with your feet on the pegs.

I parked on a hill once and put the bike in first gear to keep it from rolling. After i got back on the bike later, i swore for 10 min trying to figure out why the SOB wouldnt start !
