the crappy thing was..i looked at the tire and thought "I'd better be careful til i get the edges scuffed" got on the bike, rode maybe 2 blocks and lost it at an intersection..it spun out and flipped me completely off the bike..in front of traffic...

serious blow to the ego..and sprained my ankle...

...a pad lock...
attached to my front disc, which I completly forgot about as I was leaving a parking lot. (I was distracted by a Hottie). It was a kind of slow motion fall as I tried to place the bike down gently and let my body take the brunt of the impact while doing a not so smooth forward roll. The Hottie that was ignoring me before now had my undivided attention. DOH !
No real damage except for my crushed ego.

My brain/showing off
-trying to show my friends how far I could lean over in a 5mph turn. Turns out....not that far, before you can't get it back up

My brain/anger
-I just got a parking ticket so I went to city hall to b1tch/appeal and when I went to park on the left hand side of the street(one way street) I was still on the brakes as I turned up from the curb towards the crown in the road and my front tire tucked under. The ticket was later dropped

Both times my brain suffered retardation i put small scratch marks and cracks in my fairings.

Broken piece of a grill from a truck

After I got up from the drop I noticed a huge GMC grill laying in the grass. Only a small fraction of it caused me to go down.

Hell if I know, never found it but the front end just never hooked up after turning hard into a corner. Acted like sand. Might have been beer.

Don't drink and ride (even though I really don't think that's what the cause was).
