If the bike falls over with the engine running, will the engine be damaged due to lack of oil lubrication since the supply of oil in the pan is tipped over and it can't pick up any oil? Or is the oil pick-up in a position to pump oil even though the bike is on its side?

i try not to drop my bike to test things like this... but when i did crash out, the bike slid and kept going down the road, and the engine stayed on. when i got to my bike, it was on its side for 3+ minutes, still running.

when my bike hit the ground the engine automatically turned off and the digital speedometer was all screwed up with random black lines. I stood it up flipped the shut off switch off turned the key off then turned the shut off back on turned the key on hit the ignition and it was fine no problems what so ever
