                Twice. Both in the driveway. That was probably within the first year of ownership. Nothing in the past 5 years.

                  Twice.......once at the edge of my driveway going to work and we both landed on grass. (I had to get my neighbour to help me pick it up.... found out HE likes to sleep in the nude)....and another in a beach area ( Grand Bend) where I had to make an emergency stop after some kids walked in front of me and I couldn't get planted in time. (Thank God for full-face helmets as I was really embarrassed)....lost a mirror in that one.

                          once... when i was riding it around the block when i didnt have the tag for it yet.. took a turn too quick... either wasnt leaning enough or i hit a slight bump.... just knicked the curb and most of the sliding was in the gras... luckily i had the fairings off .

                              I wish I could say "the natural logarithm of 1" but unfortunately, it's the cube root of 1 instead: it rolled off the side stand in neutral on a driveway I was sure was level. Now I park it in gear at all times (unless on the centre stand).
