Recommended Posts

Just curious to see how many times you guys have dropped you Drz. I dropped mine today while riding on a trail

 

You mean in a day?  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Was fooling around in a parking lot, low sided. First time. Went down at deals gap last year, dropped it about 4 times trying to flat track the other day, in the dirt... too many times to count.

At least 50 times, 2 or possibly 3 times on road and probably 4 times during water crossings.  My buddy hates during the water crossings because he has to tow me out of whatever lost in the woods location we are currently at.

Once on pavement ..as I was coming out of the woods there just so happened to be a huge drainage ditch and I tried to pop my front up in time but my rear wheel caught the edge of the concrete at an angle and I fell going about 15 mph. And those mx pants didn't stop that road rash! ..I've had probably 50 dirt naps .. I'm not a fan of slippery wet rocks when I have a desert tire on back!

I think I've dropped it 3 times in the past 6 months having fun on dirt trails, I figured out how to do the foot down turn around though :)

so in the six months i'v had my z I have never dropped it.

Do you ever ride it?

 

I've lost count. I've only broken one clutch lever and crushed one radiator though.

5 times I think. All while stopped. All between now and the middle of July. I ride a supermoto with 70/30 tires.

 

One was going up an embankment to a higher area, with the intention of circling around a tree in order to get past a fence blocking an unassumed road. I stopped at the top of the embankment, which I shouldn't have. Put my foot down, and hadn't realized I was positioned in the high space between 2 deep tire tracks. Plunk! Over I went.

 

One was going down a river side trail I found off the side of a road. Get about half way down it, see that it is private property and the owner is at the end of the trail, so I back up a bit to turn around, go up this short hill and start to turn, not enough speed. Plunk! Over I went.

 

The last 3 were trying to ride up a sandy road hill. I probably shouldn't have driven this far in the first place, since the roads leading in were sand as well. But I am stubborn and didn't want to turn back. They weren't really "falls" in that I was riding in right tire track, and when I "fell" over, it was simply falling onto the raised embankment, bike never went past 45 degrees. Hardest ride to date on the bike though, took me a good 30min to get up that damned hill with those do-not-ride-in-sand tires, lol.

The sticker on my Deezer reads: CRASHING IS PROOF THAT YOU'RE TRYING.

I've had mine close to 2 months I've dropped it 4 times 3 of them bending or breaking the lever. After I dropped it today I &%$#@!ed up the headlights plastic and the side panel. And it was hard to shift so I might have to look into that tomorrow

Okay I'm a 5'7 girl and have rode mine since last year early spring... I cannot name how many times I dropped mine... just cuz it's heavier and that's no excuse but when you ride in the dirt and stuff it happens. If I get on a hill the wrong way with my footing and it dies or something yeah it's goin over! I have bent the radiator once and got the stickers a little but the brush guards on my bars so a lot of times they hit on them and save the rest. BUT... yesterday riding in dirt.... taadaa! I didn't go down one time LoL practice makes perfect guys!!
