I have only been working on my bikes for about 2 weeks and not much experience before that. But if I do the same with the bikes as I do with my cars then I am in for a world of hurt. So many stupid things, now I am scared. The most recent? The ol' forget to put the drain plug in the oil reservoir. One time I got my quad stuck in muskeg and had to leave it overnight with the winch line attached to a tree. Went back in the morning to no quad and the tree bent over to the ground still attached to the quad which was under about a foot of lovely northern sod. THAT my friends is my stupidest bike moment. Oh ya, and it wasn't really my quad. I was 12 and it was my old man's. Man my butt is still burnin!!

Haha, I did the same thing last month after I installed a skid plate on my bike. I arrived at my local riding area, jumped on the bike and realized that there was nothing there when I went to shift into first.

It's amazing how much better they work when you can shift into gear.
