never caught my laces, but on the days when I ride to work I used to often catch the upturned cuffs of my dress slacks. I either tuck them in now, or make a more out and up movement of my legs when starting up.

Nope never had that happen. But on an older bike I forgot to put the kickstand down when getting gas and the bike fell on me and pinned me against the pump. DOH...squid.

Ouch, that had to suck!

thats the nice thing about the newer Kats...safety shut off feature if you try to put her in gear w/ the stand still down.

My old 94 RF900RR did the same thing as well as my GSXR. Nice that it does that so you don't try to ride off with it down. Very nice safety feature. :D

Clip in pedals on a mountain bike....forgot to unclip, couldn't get feet off pedals....tipped over in front of a crowd, felt dumb. At least it wasn't my Gixxer.

Good thing it wasn't the Gixxer. Not as easy to pick up as the mountian bike. :D

I went to Walmart and bought some lace covers from the baby department. We bought them for our daughter because she wouldn't keep her shoes on/tied. They cover the laces and I haven't caught the pegs or untied a shoe in a long time.

They make lace covers????? I never knew that. That would've come in handy with our son. Went thru a horrible time. :cursin: :bash:

Hmm, that's why riding boots don't have laces. I never ride without riding boots. Period... I've seen WAY too many pics of people ankles after crashing in sneakers. Umm, no thanks... Full gear every time I throw a leg over the bike. Period. No exceptions...

Never fell down, but yes, I've caught the laces on a peg when I was first starting out. Learned real quick to tuck them in. Then bought riding boots a little later.
