Down at Zero mph. PLZ...Tell me I'm not the only one this has happened too.
I had my first drop last night. I knew I was gonna drop my bike sooner/later so I'm not suprised....it just sucks how the shit went down. (Here goes) I was pulling up to the entrance of my neighborhood round midnight to get something to eat. The entrance of my neighborhood comes to a "T-intersection" on to a main street. So I coming to the stop light, normal routine (clutch, downshift, brake). After this I'm slowing down and ready to put my left foot on to the pavement (sometimes both feet, but this time only the left). But something was pulling on my jeans, so I'm thinking maybe somehow the chain caught my jeans. I look down but its too dark to see so I try to set my right foot down, but the same thing. Now my only options are to either go through the red light and hit the cars that are going through the intersection or drop the bike at zero miles per hour. I obviously went with my second option. Only thing is was worried about was the bike crushing my leg, but as I tipping over my right leg was released. So I tried to catch myself and break the bikes fall while still holding on to the handle bars (Cause of this & framesliders it escaped with minor damage). I pick up the bike and drop the kickstand to examine the bike for damages. Just a few scratches on the tail and the brake lever was pushed down. Nothing serious or anything to get upset about. Then at a closer look of the bike I see what was tugging on my jeans. The damn heel guards were bent out from me trying to get free. Luckily nobody really saw me down the bike, so that saved me a lot of embarrassment, but I know I'll get it from yall. Now please tell me that I'm not the only one who has had both pants legs caught on the heel guards at the same time.
