My first bike was a dirt bike in HS so many times.
Borrowed street bikes in HS and College and pretty sure me and the owner dropped it several times while drinking and sitting on it (but not riding). This was mid 80's and I know it was a 5+ year old bike his dad gave him.

Got that out of the way when I was younger.
