My current bike i have never crashed...it was 1 year old in Jan. My first bike however a 600f2 i hisided at about 120 about 6 months after i bought it. My second bike zx6 i skidded on some crap in the road and lowsided no major damage bout a year in. third bike gsxr600 never crashed.

Haven't let the RR hit the gravel yet, and intend never to do so.. Crashed my first bike (can-of-tuna) within the first 3 weeks.. maybe less i dunno.. i clicked one month.. I also had a couple "stand-still" drops with it.. Glad I learned some good lessons on that before I got a nice bike!

my first bike I droped twice in the same week during the second month, the first time I was make a left and didnt see some gravel on rode and lowsided. Luckely the crub went down to the wheelchair access on the corner and just slid up that instead of bashing into the square part. The second time, four days later, at palomar i went into a turn, i guess l target fixated as some would say, and went into the dirt lowsided. that was all on an f4. After that got my rr. No wrecks and hope there wont be none for a while or ever for that matter

oops, voted wrong. I dropped it during the first 20 feet of riding any bike (27 miles on odometer after having my friend ride it home from the dealer) while stopping at the stop sign. Then dropped it on the other side of the bike doing a u-turn and first crash at 5-15mph with 300 miles on odometer. (Cold tires? What's that?). Then crashed at 40-50mph on lefty at 6800 miles, bike washed out. (Who said you can't ride in 28 degree weather?) That's learning the hard way. =P

My RR is my first bike never rode one before. I've had mine almost a year and almost 11,000 miles and she hasnt touched the ground. Not even a fall over. I did take the MSF. I give all the credit to it.
