[b]Oh my God! What an absolute tit! [pun intended]

It does make me feel a bit better though. We all do stupid things that we normally would never admit to.

Perfect example:
In my very first week of biking - ALL those years ago, I went to Delaney's shop on Harold's Cross Bridge. I said my bike isn't working, I think it's something to do with the battery. They asked me why I thought it was the battery and I replied

Ha Ha well in all fairness at least you tried to figure out yourself what was up with it. I know fella's who have been driving years and they still wont even change a bloody spark plug "just incase" they mess it up.

I'd only had my old GS500 for about a week when I realised that the full beam wasn't working with the thumb switch. I made it right back to the dealer who kindly pointed out that the main headlight switch was turned off....On a crowded forecourt... ohd:

[b]Must admit to having done that myself, after a few lads had sat on my bike and were pressing all the swithes that they could get there hands on.

I noticed just as they were giving me a bump start, i never told them it was the kill switch.*
[right]13115[/right]

happened to me a few weeks ago. the starter switch is gone in the bike so I had to push start it. But the lads next door to me where messing on the bike and turned off the kill switch, they asked could they go for a little spin on the bike, I obliged cos I feel like a tit push starting it. So I left them off for a few minutes pushing the bike up and down me street , they didnt have a clue what was up with it, so eventually I told them to turn the killswitch the other way. started straight away. They asked me why I didnt tell them about it, I said I fell like a dope push starting it, but watching ye run for about 5 minuted with the bike trying to start it just makes me look better doing a little push start compared to there embarrassment in front of their girlfriends trying to start it. Although one of the eejits, only a small fella. tried to psh start it, whilst turning around the circle outside me house. he was turning to the right and sat on the left when he pushed it, you got it, the little runt dropped the bike and just layed in the middle of the road with little puppy dog eyes, waiting to get a slap off me, but the poor young fella was so shook up I just laughed at him.

plenty of kill switch trouble for me too, did it on the bandit just this week, i was convinced for about 10 mins that the switch in the clutch lever needed to start the bike had been water damaged.

and i presume we're all tried to drive off with a disc lock still on at one time or another?

Oh yes - I've done that! Even now when I KNOW I've removed it I still have to have a final glance down just to MAKE SURE !!

Ah just remembered another embarrasment. Again, years ago (I swear :ph34r: ) I had a tiny Yamaha Passole (so small you could pick it up and carry it under your arm) Anyway. I stopped at the garage there at constitution hill. Filled it up with petrol , walked into the shop, paid for it (la la la in my own little world) went back to the bike, took out my keys, unlocked my lock attached to my carrier, (hmm I wonder what's for dinner) bent down, locked the rear wheel with the chain, got on the bike (dum de dum) started the engine..........

Thankfully (for the bike, not for my pride) the fella came running out of the shop (he must have been watching this madness the whole time) and said , er.... you've just LOCKED your bike. I still close my eyes and shake my head with shame every time I think of it.

OH they're ALL coming out now:

I used to leave my keys dangling out of my top box (ignition key was seperate) like a right eejit. I'd drive miles and only when I got off the bike would I realise my pocket was empty (moment of stomach plunging anxiety) but lo and behold there they always were dangling out of the top box.

the ignition on my FZR was buggered, you could take the keys out of it while it was running. one summer evening on the way home from work, i was stopped at lights in the airport. it was warm so i decided to take my gloves off and put them under the pillion seat so i pulled the keys out, left it running and put the gloves in and closed it. when i got home and went to turn the bike off i noticed the keys were missing. luckily they were still in the seat lock ... d'oh!!
