Surely you could come up with more than "it fell over".
I would have said that I swerved to miss a UFO, had it full lock sideways at 180mph, got pitched over the bars, flipped 5 times, then lost control of the thing..........

Back to the real world, here's couple more of mine, FWIW.

Here's my XTZ750 Super Tenere. I think this qualifies as a "Classic, Vintage Adventure Bike .

Almost ready after full rebuild!

Must get back to this project one day!

Had it sitting for 18mths in the workshop, gotta pull down the motor,
[even though P.O. said he'd rebuilt the top end], & do the cam bearings properly, send the head to U.S. & get it tunnel bored with real bearings!
& check out the oil pick-up in the sump, apparently some inherent issues there I've been told
Cheers
