Today, when approaching a stop light on my motorcycle, I went to extend my left leg as usual to balance when stopped. Apparently my shoelace loop got wrapped around the shift lever and "tied" my shoe to the bike. It's hard to look cool when you fall over for no apparent reason at a stoplight. FML

Well at least you tried... I would have just watched and said FHL to the person inside

...You ride crotch rockets? Or should I dig my mind out of the gutter? Anyway... Pictured this and laughed hard.

this is not a fyl. more like a *meh* moment in response to number 1, gratz for not saying " omg, im number 1, look at me, im number one!.......etc"

Actually, I think this is more of an FML moment than most of the ones that end up on this site...and this one was funny too! =P

Don't worry I bet the chicks dig that type of stuff......oh wait u fell of and tried to play it off?? Lol nvm ur screwed to walk over this earth as a zombie that gets murdered by one of the characters ib the movie Zombieland.... :D

wow your a loser i wouldve opened my car door and slammed it into you as i drove by

did you ever think to put your other foot down(they wear motorcycle boots for a reason)

#39, It would be extremely hard to put his right foot down if he was leaning on the left side of the bike already.

Not so. I ride a motorcycle too, and if you can't touch the floor with both feet at the same time, then you're riding a bike that's too big for you. The OP deserves it for wearing inappropriate footgear. Motorcycle boots either don't have laces (buckles, zips, etc), or have a flap (often with some kind of armour) on the shin that covers up the laces for this very reason. I'd put money on him not wearing a single shred of protective gear.

really how short is he if he can't put both feet on ground if he can't the bike is to big

of what use is being able to put your right foot on the ground if the machine is allready falling to the left?

He's probably too small for the bike and needs to shift his weight to one side in order to reach the ground with a foot. So right foot stuck on the clutch (shift lever) prevented him from being able to properly support himself and the bike with his left foot. The guy clearly doesn't know what he's doing but he told the story in a funny way at least.

NEVER wear anything but boots on a bike!!!

yikes man, tie ur dang shoes next time. FYL

Clearly they were tied, or there wouldn't be a "loop".

Lol that sucks, well maybe you should tuck in your laces into your shoes haha sucks though

...You ride crotch rockets? Or should I dig my mind out of the gutter? Anyway... Pictured this and laughed hard.

Haha me too. I actually laughed out loud. At the mental picture, and the wording.. "It's hard to look cool when you fall over for no apparent reason...." Hahahahahaa.

I JUST realized what you were talking about. Best. Username. Evar.

Crotch rocket is (old) slang for sport bikes, or racer-type bikes.

^yeah... before I read the name I thought he was on like a harley or something. but trynna picture a dude on a rice burner jus tipping over randomly seems more comical

I know what they are, I just am perpetually perverted, so my mind focused on the crotch part instead of the rocket. (Dick instead of bike, obviously).

HAHAHA I did that while taking the road test. Begining of class they said never ride with any shoe that has a shoelace for that very reason. Feel your pain

this guy better be grateful, i'm the one who said "yes" on the moderate fmls. lol, but fyl dude, BIG TIME!

YDI for even trying to look cool. D-Bag alert.

"Looking cool" does NOT make someone a d-bag!! Trying too hard to look cool and failing miserably makes someone a d-bag. If looking cool is d-baggery, than we're all guilty of being a d-bag either currently or sometime in the past.

OP wasn't trying to look cool idiot, he was just trying to look like a normal motorcyclist. Most motorcyclists look cool on their bikes naturally, and he said it was hard when you fall off

Haha, that's funny :P That's why you should always tuck your laces in your shoes! I learned that YEARS ago when I got my first dirtbike.

Actually, that's why there are motorcycle BOOTS. A REAL rider has them, and always wears them when riding. They don't have laces for just this reason. And they're a LOT better at protecting your feet and ankles from the crap on the road tossed up by your front wheel (and from other vehicles) and protecting you should you crash.
