At first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again. We can’t stop watching this clip on replay, it’s just too damn funny. In the clip, a man takes his first ride on his brand new Harley, but he doesn’t quite make it to the road. It gives a whole new meaning to the saying “keep the shiny side up, rubber side down”.
Don’t worry buddy, it happens to the best of us. Besides, a first ride like this makes a great story to tell all your friends. He’s just lucky his first fall was on the dirt and not the hard asphalt. You can tell that the fellow and his family have a great sense of humor, only the best guys can laugh at themselves.
We sincerely hope this guy, his ego or his bike didn’t get too scratched up to hop back on the saddle and try it again. We do have one suggestion for his next ride: wear a helmet!
Check out the video clip below of the first motorcycle ride gone wrong. Don’t worry, no blood is shed. Have you ever goofed up or do something stupid on your first ride? Tell us your story in the comments.
