I have lost stuff before, always due to absentmindedness, I do a lot of business errands, site inspections, etc in my land use consulting business, a couple times I have just laid my back pack on the back of my bike continued to do other tasks then when done, get on my bike and ride away without bungeeing my back pack down ( I have never had a bungee net failure, I always double up with 2 different color nets to make easier to untangle
twice I lost the same backpack on my SV, when I realized I lost it, I backtracked to the last point I remember having it, both times, it was turned into PD, by time I got home I had a phone call
another time, last spring, I was picking up bike from service at dealer, and realized that it didn't have annual inspection (not overdue) so before I left, I got my registration out from under seat, they handed it back, seat was back on, so momentarily I set it down resting on my caribou rack between the seat and side case and in front of the turn signal stalk then I got sidetracked in conversation with the mechanic the symptoms of this cancer my V-strom has were beginning to resurface
I rode way , the next day I had my seat off for one reason or another, I noticed
no plastic baggie with registration, insurance card, emergency cash (iirc at he time about $35 US and $40 CD)
then I remembered, the last place I could place seeing it saw just resting on the side case, with maybe the weight of the sidecase handle weighting it down
Iwent back to dealer , no one found it, I looked, when home to figger what replacement procedure is, registration is a nightmare, insurance card is easy, they send ya extra cards to begin with
before I got too far into the process, I got a phone call, a guy about halfway betrween dealer and my house sells used farm equipment on craigs list, he was walking on a field road about 300 feet away from the street I would have been on. to show someone a Sh!t spredder, and they found it, everything intact
a couple of times also, I have forgot to bring my wallet, one time on vacation at tail of dragon, home base was "The ridge" iirc just a couple miles away from Santeetla ? gap at begining of Cherohala, I looked at my trip meter ( on my SV650) and decided to head straight to Telleco Plains instead of back to Robbinsville to get gas first, I had easy enuf to get to Telleco Plains even though I may have a flashing fuel light when I got there
sure enuf, it started flashing about 15 miles before I got to the gas station, then I go to pull out my wallet for my credit card
I had $1.21 in pocket change in my pocket, I got about .4 gal of fuel then headed back it barely stopped the fuel light from flashing till I got to eh first corner, not long before the flashing light turned to solid warning light .
Somehow I made it to NC line, down hill form there, I coasted for miles all the way back I only had to start the engine twice, I made it back without running out (thats when I started carrying emergency money in with my registrations )
