Well at least you tried... I would have just watched and said FHL to the person inside
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.
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.
...You ride crotch rockets? Or should I dig my mind out of the gutter? Anyway... Pictured this and laughed hard.
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.
