Who hasn't dropped their GS or GSA?

I'll go first. Not me.

Not on the street but I have in the dirt. The latest was a slippery moss covered low water crossing, had me going backwards before I finally dropped it. No biggie, the protection works as advertised.

Wicked Define: Dropped?

Do you mean a singular event? Where the bike assumes the lateral resting position? Like 'one in a row'?

TNTC......To Numerous To Count..

But Practice Makes Perfect! [as long as my body or bike lasts that long..]

I dropped my 1150 RT a half dozen times. My 1200 RT once and that was at a dead stop when I "forgot" to put the side stand down prior to getting off (dah dah!!!). My 1200 GS Adventure which is higher than either of the other two, especially with Ohlins, I haven't dropped yet. I'm sure it will come but I am being very careful. I was 5'10" but my doctor now says I'm only 5'91/2" with a 30 inch inseam. The GSA just seems easier to move around.

You mean "touched the ground?"

There are two kinds of GS riders:
1.) those that have dropped it.
2.) those that haven't dropped it yet.

Get it done and move on - gravity happens.


OH - for me, item #1 happened quite a while back.....

Dropped mine while unloading it from the trailer on Christmas morning 2006. First time I had ever touched it.

At least I got that out of the way early.

Just got it so not yet, but I've already set my expectation that it's gonna happen.
