don't worry about it too much, mike_drz, I'm sure some other forum members here would be more than happy to tell you, if some guy washing his car was on your only witness to being stupid, you got off good. I seem to have all my stupid moments around beautiful girls, as a matter of fact I've got 3 under my belt that should, each and of their own, prevent me from ever fornicating again (luckily they haven't).
The third one I did about a month after riding, stopped by to see a lady friend, and didn't have the kickstand extended fully, so apparently I left the bike doing somewhat of a balancing act, about the time I'm up the sidewalk and giving her a hug, you hear that painful crash come from the street as the bike fell over, doh!
The second one (we're moving in order of severity here) I managed to do at an intersection in front of a highschool here, right after school let out for the day, I was about 19 at the time (2 years ago), and, hey, what can I say, school had just let out, and I was distracted by the eye candy on the sidewalk, by the time I remembered I was coming up on a redlight and looked forward, I was dangerously close to rear-ending a school bus, liking my head attached where it is, I panic braked and laid the bike down on it's left side, it was relatively slow and I managed to remain standing, barely, the bike bounced up under the bus but not under any wheels or anything, and amazingly - the bus was obvious to it, painfully I had to stand there, and wait for the light to turn green and the bus to go forward to recover the bike, stand it back up, crank it, and go. All the while having the cute little girls, I was just admiring, and their moms, asking if I was okay and wanting to call an ambulance (for a <15mph get off)
The first, and worst one, was at an intersection close to the largest of our 5 local theaters, I had seen a movie with some buds, and was making my way home, it was relatively late at night so as I pulled up to a stop light there was only one other car at it, being the generally curious cat that I am, I looked over at the driver as I pulled up next to her, and my friend, she was absolutely smokin' hot, I was glad I had my full face helmet on cause, I'd of looked like an idiot sitting there jaw dropped (but I was about to make a much better impression anyway
) so, as I'm staring at her, she realizes she'd been gazed at, and looks back over at me, I really don't know how long I managed to stare at her but, it was the only thing on my mind - so, it came as quite a shock when she smiled and gave a little wave, so, being the polite young man I am, went to return the wave, took my right hand up and hadn't taken the bike out of first gear, it started to roll forward which pulled it across the bottom of my hand, giving it more gas, I tried to stand up and let it go out from under me but, the peg caught the back of my right shoe, so the bike shot out in the intersection, and threw me back onto my ass. I almost cried, but instead, I immediately stood up, walked into the intersection, picked the bike up, cranked it, revved a few times, and tore off in the direction I came from, never looked at her again the whole time... oh well.
Anyway, the point is - it's never as embarassing as it could have been if there were good looking ladies around. I'm glad to hear the damage was minimal though, and good job on starting with a bike you can learn on.
