I made one for my XF when it tipped over in the wind. Good thing the sidestand was hollow, so I could put a threaded rod in it. So about drops: Suzuki XF650 Freewind: 3 times (I guess you learn from your mistakes) - Lowsider on a roundabout, rainy, cold weather and fresh diesel tracks. Rear wheel slipped at 30km/h. Damage: broken off bar-end, broken off handguard, bent gear shift lever. No fairing damage - Small crash, car came from the right (he has to yield), ran into his front bumper. Damage: his front bumper came off and wiper reservoir broke, I had a bent gear shift lever - Dropped on driveway, was too early and I was in a hurry, no damage NC700X: 0 times VFR800: 0 times (for now) *added 25 jan 19: Guess I jinxed myself: +1 Almost drops: NC700X: foot slipped in garage, got traction at the end and kept the bike upright VFR800: probably everytime I ride out of the driveway. Seems like I still need to get to know the clutch. Also was doing a little offroading with it so I almost ran into a ditch.
