I have a vast amount of experience doing stupid things, but the dumbest move I have done motorcycle-wise was this one> I had just got my bike lift and had my Concours on it for service. Because the Connie was so heavy, I had my brother help me push it up the ramp onto the platform. The next day, after I completed the service work, my brother wasn't home so I thought that I would roll it back off the platform seated on the bike. Bad move. I dropped the back wheel off the ramp and the bike fell to the right with yours truly aboard. Luckily my body prevented any damage as it made a nice buffer between the bike and the garage wall. I was trapped with 680 pounds of bike on me. Nobody home and my nearest neighbour is 300 metres away. My dog was no help at all. I remained in that position for nearly an hour until a buddy just happened to stop by. I laugh about it now, but it wasn't very entertaining at the time.
