This is very easy to perform and only takes a moment. For beginners it's best to start with something like this.

1. Ride your Buell till you need a pee
2. When you are physically incapable of riding any further, pull off the road onto some discreet hardstanding.
3. Get off your Buell and mark your territory
4. Zipper up and Get back on your Buell
5. Raise the sidestand and as you put your right foot down to stabilise the bike, discover that in your urgent desperation you parked where the ground falls away to the right
6. Then simply keel over, letting your Buell fall on top of you.

You may know other ways to fall off your Buell, if so why not share them here?

I wanted to keep this area clean and tidy for real How Tos that people will find useful.

Would you mind if we moved your post somewhere else?

I hope the Buell (and you!) are OK?

No cameras damaged either?

1) Park on the right hand side of a pub car park, near the corner
2) Go into pub for a few glasses of your preferred beverage
3) Return to bike with Kawasaki-owning friends, to let them hear what a proper engine sounds like
4) Fire up, side stand up, set off for a lap of the car park
5) Score extra marks if you use the underslung exhaust to blow gravel at them
6) Further additional marks are available for setting off car alarms
7) Finish the loop with a flourish to head back to your Kawasaki-riding friends
8) Chew tarmac
9) Kick the fuck out of the steering lock and thank your chosen deity that you left the standard airbox on to take most of the gravel rash.
10) Use drill to remove steering lock, just in case you are ever again tempted.

Turn into parking space while half asleep, slip on some car's air conditioner outflow. (Handy tip, keep hand on handlebar grip to ensure most damage occurs to your hand rather than the bike. )

Wait for two recent car parkees to pick the bike up for you :oooops:

Spend most of morning answering concerned e-mails from colleagues who witnessed aforesaid incident :oooops: :oooops:

After one week, fit replacement mirror from Swichy (thanks :!: )

Spend next two weeks hoping, unsuccessfully, that hand is better for the last track day of the season :cry:

1. book holiday at lovely farmhouse with mates.
2. load up bike with panniers.
3. get dressed in cool black leathers.

5. Stop to chat while everyone else gets out of the house to greet you.
6 Suss out where to park the bike.
7 attempt to turn bike around on broken gravelly road surface.
8 hit large stone that stops you dead at slow speed.
9 gracefully and in slow motion flop to one side putting foot into deep pot-hole.
10 be rescued by girls lifting the bike off your leg.
11 tell yourself that this must have happened to loads of :tosser: s before you......

Si.

Not done on my Buell, but woulda if I'da had it in 1969.....

1. Nonchanantly walk up to bike, past chick you have fancied for ages
2. Nonchalantly side astride bike and kick up side stand
3. Chick smiles at you, nonchalantly smile back, put on helmet
3. Realise keys are still in your cool looking macho leathers
4. Forget you kicked up side stand three seconds ago, and nonchalantly throw bike down on the ground

BTW nobody is to mention the incident at the petrol station last month OK?

Not a Buell (yet) but;

Get into the habit of parking bike next to works dinner hut.
Also get in habit of switching lights off just before actually stopping.
Then instead of switching lights of hit the kill switch instead.
Keep feet on pegs untill the bike is well over and crack your new lid on the concrete.

Ohh the smiles it created :yup:

N.
