I Ride: 1199 Panigale
Closest I came was getting gas. Stepped off, side stand didn't stay down (My own fault I'm sure) and when I stepped off the bike came with me. I still had a firm grip on the bars and it tossed me into the pump, dented the fuck out of the pump with my shoulder, grunted hard and saved the bike, no idea how, and put it back upright. Sidestand went down and had to go tell the owner I just fell into, and dented, his pump. Wonderful.

I often do the final stop with the front or rear but in this case I got on the front and the bike stopped a little fast. Touchy break. I put my right foot down but was close to the side of the road where there was some rocks and gravel present, foot slipped and down I went. Front tire did not slip.

The fairing was untouched and the only part of the bike that touched the ground were the right bar and clutch cover. Cover is scuffed slightly and bar was bent. I rode it home and decided to trailer it to the dealer as I was going to do the 600 this week anyway, however bar let go as I was strapping it down. No other damage except possible steering stop. I couldn't check as the bar was touching the tank from being bent.

I think what got me was over confident, with sloppy stop and noticed that I saw the ground as when my foot started to slip. Anyone done anything so stupid or can chime in on how to keep from Foiuing up again?
Its all good brotha. We've all done it. Just make sure you learn from it.

As a former MSF instructor, I get one thing from your description of the incident. Always cover the rear brake if you know you are stopping. That way you know your left foot will always be first down, and bike oriented appropriately for the stop.

Peace.

How long have you been riding?

Hope all is quick and cheap to fix, but being new and Ducati, it's probably gonna cost a few extra $.
Rode for 8 years in the dirt 40 years ago and started on the street a year ago. I have about 11K mile on the street know with 2 track days. First time to drop a bike since riding on the street.

Thanks, I know better but getting a little cocky and got bit. I was actually a little leaned over when I stopped as I was pre-thinking starting off of the right foot to make a quick exit from the intersection to the right.

it'll fix up just fine, no worries. practice makes perfect. Some off road riding can really bring the idea home on slow speed spills. Take care.

Dropped a yellow 998 mono on a 14 degree day leaving the dealer. Pulled out onto busy road and dipped the bike left, squeezed about 50-60%, 14f and new tire decided not to play and spun leaving me lowsided in the middle of a buisy 4 lane road.

No real damage to anything but my ego and the bar end, just a sprained ankle and a real good lesson learned.

PS. Boy I miss that short wheelbase 916-998!

I would be so sad if my red light of my life got injured!
I always stop with rear brake that way the forks don't depress and shift your balance, good tip from Police motorcycle and Institute of Advanced Riders.
Safe riding

Yep.
When I ride, it's the first brake that's applied and the last brake that's released under all road riding circumstances.
