Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

I've ridden bikes for about 40 years now. I've written the LT about around 50,000 miles. Dropped her maybe 10 times (I'm not all that careful ). Every time I've dropped her my wife has been onboard (I wonder if that may have something to do with it). Last weekend she went off a 6 foot embankment and she ended up upside down in a ditch. The front wheel slipped off the pavement when I was making a hard left-hand turn from stop onto a road that curved hard to the right and sloped very much in the wrong direction!. Both mirrors popped off and it knocked the windshield loose. I cracked a couple of ribs and Jan sprained her ankle. We were just getting healed up good from totalling the GS back in April. But all this didn't keep us from riding. I took the beast home, cleaned her up and put everything back in place, then we road her 300 miles that day. .

THAT would cause a depression - hypothetically speaking of course.

I burned the snot out of a hot air balloon around 1984 while inflating it - I just wasn't paying attention and it was getting a little windy. It happens eventually to even the best. I had to cancel the flight.

Since I had a paying flight the next day I rented a 172, took the seats out and flew it to a repair station several hundred miles away. Talk about stuffed...

The very next day - badabing. I did it AGAIN.

(We're talking about $1K in repairs EACH time, minus the lost passenger revenue of $700 EACH time, minus the expense of the plane rental, $360.00 EACH time and av gas.)

Some days are just more enjoyable then others.

Oh man, I learned that lesson when I was 16 and had my FIRST NEW BIKE - a Kawasaki 250 twin Samurai that I used to just sit in the garage and look at. I was in love. I earned every nickle to pay for that bike by working long hours at a grocery store after school and weekends.

A very good buddy that I had raced motocross with for several years wanted to take it for a spin, so I said sure.... Off he went, and after about 15 minutes I was wondering exactly when he would be coming back.

My worst fears were realized when he came walking back to my garage. He missed a curve and ran straight on into a concrete curb. Ended up in the middle of someone's yard. Bike was totaled.

He was fine minus a few grass stains - UNTIL I got a hold of him.

I've NEVER lent any of my bikes (or tools) to anyone since then. My momma always said I wasn't very good lookin' - but none of her boys were stoopid.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

I dropped mine with less than 12K on it pulling up to a gas pump with a passenger. I was mistakenly favoring the front brake as I always had since buying the bike because of the irritating cowl bell on the back squealing away every time I used it. So then I found out EBC came out with a nice rotor and pad set... put those on and no more squealing.

The back brake wasn't involved on my second rodeo. I was in Florida in heavy rain after riding in it all day and was looking for a hotel that was there on the GPS but no where in sight when when I looked around. I pulled off the shoulder to try and make a call to the hotel and that's when I realized it was fresh laid pavement with a lip of about 4 inches difference between the edge of the blacktop and the actual shoulder. I knew when the bike dropped down that it would be trouble getting back on the asphalt. I couldn't swing wide and take a better angle because of a ditch to my right so I held my breath and started forward. The front wheel slid a bit but then popped up on the road and then the back tire got about half way up the edge and started to spin. Before I could pull the clutch the back shot around and then caught traction all in the blink of an eye I was launched over the high side of the bike. Mirror, saddle bag, side fairing all took a beating. That was a memorable trip to say the least.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

Dropped Raven in the garage first night home. All the LTs I had tried just popped up on the center stand. Not raven. Grab, center, balance, tug . . . aaarrrgghh! Bent tip-over bar. Then once the street pavement gave way - not that hot, either. None since.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

I can still declare I have an equal number of two-wheeled stops for starts. Now... perhaps we should start counting "duck" step stops. Like...say... anything more than 3... (both left and right foot paddling your buns n' beast to a stop) steps count as a near miss.... just a thought.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

OK you senior guys with 40+ years of M/C riding w no drops -

1) My 2005 K1200LT on our garage rolled off the kickstand into my son's new car. No bike damage but sure did a $1K number on his front fender.

2) In my driveway doing a U-turn, touched the rear brake & she low sided. Damn linked brakes.

3) A week after 2), doing a U-turn 2 up, touched the rear brake, and she low sided on me again. Damn linked brakes.

Maybe my problem is riding three different bikes where the other two have no linked brakes. Just a little spooked now......................

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

Hasn't happened to me yet on my '03 with 60,000 miles on the clock. But I prescribe to the notion that there are two kinds of motorcycle riders; those who have dropped their bikes and those who will drop their bikes.

I just hope iwhen it happens it's not an embarassing situation.

Huh?

A dilemma (Greek δί-λημμα "double proposition") is a problem offering at least two solutions or possibilities, of which none are practically acceptable; one in this position has been traditionally described as "being on the horns of a dilemma", neither horn being comfortable; or "being between a rock and a hard place", since both objects or metaphorical choices being rough.

The dilemma is sometimes used as a rhetorical device, in the form "you must accept either A, or B"; here A and B would be propositions each leading to some further conclusion. Applied in this way, it may be a fallacy, a false dichotomy.

In formal logic, the definition of a dilemma differs markedly from everyday usage. Two options are still present, but choosing between them is immaterial because they both imply the same conclusion.

Gee, I was hoping for a chance at the record until a couple weekends ago when I just had to move the bike to the back yard and then just had to turn it around on the slick pavers.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

Hi all:

'05 LT - owned for about 6 months, but only ridden a handful of times.

One sharp turn driveway drop (broke electric windshield assembly when she landed windshield first against the front of my truck) and one side stand drop, no damage.

The interesting thing is that I just read an article online (before the second drop) on how to pick up a full sized bike by yourself, followed the directions, and it worked! I muscled her up without any damage to myself at all.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

Hey Forumites, New here

Picking up mine from CT. next week! Bought it from my father, Can't say i've dropped it yet.

I've only ridden it a few times, but i've been a passenger for nearly 25k. And just recently purchased it from my Father. I gotta say i don't look forward to it, but i'm sure it'll happen when i'm on the BlueRidge.

Though i've been on the back of it as my Father dropped it, No damage, just sanded it out.

its a 2000 K1200LT Icon with 39k on it.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

I am a complete newby to this forum - and to BMW, and in fact to geared bikes - yup you've guessed it - I'm a new driver! So have a laugh on me. Previous experience 2 years on Honda 100cc twist grip - passed test 6 months ago - advised by most sane people - buy a 5-600cc commuting bike, and of course that was my aim.
So after looking around, I chose to buy a 99 LT from the insane brother in law, well I say chose I was kind of obliged after driving it a short distance and coming to a pretty abrupt halt, it tilted, so did I and over we went (Day 1) - damage to custom front left foot board.
Outing into city for adjusting to night time traffic, parked up OK 1st gear uphill side stand, back on reversing down slope, foot down to ready for left turn, lost footing on recessed manhole cover, it tilted - thought better of breaking my leg in retarding the fall, over it went (Day 3) - more damage to custom front left foot board, and new left mirror.
Outing to Glen Coe via Loch Lomond, great ride, turn into cafe parking bay, misjudged distance to next bike, compensated by leaning other way, a gentle lie down for the old lady (Day 10) - hey no damage!
No drops since then - except for today after 1500 miles riding it (100 of those today), parked bike up deployed side stand uncharacteristically took it out of first (don't know why), got off bike to see it roll forward onto the last of the custom foot peg - need a new foot board - will probably replace with standard issues until I stop doing this!

Three things I've learned from this - biking isn't cheap, Scotland is a great place for biking if you can keep it upright, and I need a heck of a lot more practice.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

OK, I dropped mine 2 times the first week last fall when I first got my LT. Learned some quick hard lessons. Number 1 among them is that if you live in a very hilly part of the country this thing can be hard to hang onto if you do not pay attention. After that did great all winter no problems. Then I read this thread.

Immediately, after reading this I was doing a U turn in my in-laws drive way with a downhill slope and while on cold medication had a brain fart and downshifted into neutral midturn. So discretion being the better part of valor I easily laid her down, picked her up and finished the turn. Main lesson learned...don't ride bike on drugs (prescribed). So a little scratched chrome & hurt pride. BUT THEN...

After an evening ride this past week I totally caked the front of the bike with early Spring bugs. After washing the bike and backing it into the garage I was having some trouble getting the center stand to work. I pulled the bike back out of the garage where there is a slight downslope and put the bike on the side stand. I checked the center stand working it up and down. Then turned to make sure no problem in garage. Of course while standing in the garage the bike fell over totally destroying the chrome on the saddle bag. That resulted in a cussing tirade. Then I backed the bike into the garage and the center stand worked just fine.

So I have dropped my bike most recently with zero miles ridden and have gone way off the subject of this thread, but obviously it is this thread's fault that my bike has been down 2x in one week. Of course there was nothing I did wrong.

Oh and does anybody have any side trim for sale?

Either brake lever or pedal gets both brakes on the newer bikes. It is old habit to try to brake like the old bikes and think you are making a differnce which lever you pull. Its a hard habit to brake!

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

I have NEVER dropped Miss Aubergine! Not in the whole time I've owned her.

Alright. Partial disclosure: Just got her home from the dealer approx. 50 miles part of which I rode 2 up! On her maiden voyage no less! Never even came close to lettin' her lay over. Easy as pie. Can't figure why everone has so much trouble with 'em flopping over.

Alright. Full disclosure: Hannigan sidecar might have helped!

What a machine! Much more difficult (effort wise) to steer the thing than I expected. I'm looking forward to the day I'm brave enough to take the training wheel off and luxuriate in her sportbike handling characteristics in the twisties!

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

2 LTs - a 99 with 40k miles. no horizontality, in either normal or abnormal operation. ;-)

current ride, a 2000, puchased with 7k and now sitting at 54k miles.

net/net - 99 till 09 - 87k miles, no drops, crashes, low sides, fall overs, tip overs, broken stands, perambulating reframulators or flux capacitors.

knocking on (wooden) head. YMMV. ;-)

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

No drops yet - purchased July 2003 and have about 56K miles to date.

It rolled off the sidestand once - I was able to grab it - however gravity was winning and if my wife wasn't nearby to help I would have not been able to hold on and it would have fallen.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

Bought her in June of 04 and never dropped her until...


Saturday and with the wife on board. Stopped in a lot just off the Cherohala Skyway in front of our favorite eatery only to see it up for sale. Lead bike swoops a U turn from the lot onto the two lane headed back to Tellico Plains. I look left, then look right and begin the lean as I looked left again there was a car out of nowhere. Grabbed brake rather than throttle and oh so slowly she went over. Wife did a four point and I staggered away. No one hurt and picked her up with minimal marks. I was convinced I would never drop her, now I am relieved that it is over with.

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

Bought my LT last July and havn't dropped it yet.
My last drop was about 45 years ago when I took my 77 kawasaki 1000LTD on a grassy slope and tried to get up a very damp hill............wrong choice!! I had to let her down easy but pulled every tendon in my left arm trying to do so and then trying to get it back up. Finally someone came along to help. That was my last drop. I understand the problems with the LT and that makes me very careful with the slow speed parking lot manouvers, and the front brake.
Spring is here and what a blast driving this beast. People roll down their windows at red lights to compliment me on what a nice looking bike I have. Makes me feel good about the choice I made to buy it.

Have a great riding season!

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

You have heard it before.. I lost the shock bolt on the upper rear and the second turn into a gas station, I was confronted with two members Of AARP riding bicycles, which stopped into my path, which made me find out what turning and braking at 5 MPH on an inclined parking lot will do..

The only thing good about that is the bolt fell out completely and made me wonder what the heck that was.... I could not find out where this thing belonged.

MY harley partner that rode all the way from Texas said it was probably from some foreign car... Initially I paused and decided it would be a good souvenir instead...
So I tossed it into the trunk and found out after dragging center stand in the corners thru three states that it belonged to the upper shock mount in Illinois....

SO I did it the in the first 2 miles...

Second time my friend, when she was driving my truck, made the comment ( I shoulda seen this coming- GUys!) " ya know that bike matches your truck perfectly". I got on my bike and put the helmet on, cliked the starter switch and looked left to see my tailights about 10 inches from me- WHAM...

Not as good as the stand story, but it is my story and I am sticking to it...


OK so ya heard it before...

Next time I will just say- I remember when....

Re: Who holds the record for NOT dropping an LT?

Does almost dropping it from 30+ inches in the air off the front of my lift last night count?
I just got a new lift and was trying it out. This one tool transformed my garage into my Man Cave! Had only raised it up and down a few times.

I was not paying attention and released the lift too quickly which kind of bounced it which also bounced my LT. The LT popped off the center stand, rolled forward until the front tire rolled off the lift and it hung up on my skid plate and the hold down straps. When that happened I think I "passed a few bricks"!

My teen daughter in her own way asked, "is it supposed to do that?" Luckily got it down after piling a few bags of 25# shot and having her sit on the back of the lift to offset the forward weight.

Other than that, I've dropped many motorcycles in Motor Training! Probably 25 times the first days!

Once so far, at at gas station. Turning to pull up next to the pump and hit the front brake. Once she starts over all I can do is attempt to make it a gentle landing. No real damage done and a buddy helped me get her up before others noticed.
