I'm a member in um.... Good standing?
I have an old K100, which not long after I bought it, I spent mucho dinero on having painted.... Yep, you got it.
Dropped it late one night soon afterwards, after a long, cold (ish) ride. :cry
Bought a 2002 K1200 somewhat recently. On a distance ride with some buddies, we pulled up to a stop amid some confusion over our direction of travel. Lo & behold, I'd stopped pretty directly, not having shifted down to first. Upon take-off, the bike made a gallant effort at launching itself in 4th gear- then gave up rather abruptly, and yes, fell over on its side. Argh.
Also, in the realm of dropping a big bike in front of many people - I saw a couple pull up to register for the Bloomsburg, PA MOA rally a couple years ago, and the gentleman dropped his bike in front of the registration tent!
