I forgot to lock properly the sidecases on my K12RS a few years back.

The best part was that, after I lost the right box, I re-rode the section of freeway and found the case!

The cover was ground down from spinnig on asphalt, but the body survived and no one ran it over. Lucky shot, it only cost me a new cover.

Also, had a fly-off of the Vario top box on my R12GS. I've been riding over a big hole in a dirt road and the box actually flew ahead of me! Only a few scratches resulted; I still use it, though now with the enduro mod (a pin that prevents the box from sliding forward and out of latch - it's not the bolt-down kit).
