Had to happen...
« on: April 19, 2015, 06:33:38 pm »

Got away from me at a hamburger joint. I fought the good fight but once it got past the tipping point... all was lost.  No serious damage. Do I get a cookie?

That sucks. I think I scratched mine more picking it up than the drop did. Tough bike to lift.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

At least dropping it to the right is easier to lift since you just let it go over to the sidestand.  Canyon cages would have kept it from falling over so far.  ;)

It took me 3 tries to get it up right. My first attempt was like a regular bike, just grab the bars and lift.... I think that's when I hurt my back. It's not the end of the world,  little scuffs on the mirror and side case.

Adding injury to insult. Ouch!

They look so sad laying on their side!   :)

People must think we're batty when we take pictures before trying to pick it up.  :D

Dropped mine pushing her into my metal shed, drunk.   ::)
Door frame kept her up at least to a MotoGP lean angle against the seat. 
Shed took the abuse, right hand door had to be straightened and put back on track.  :D

Took pictures with my phone to text a buddy and ask what he was doing in the morning, I might need some help.   ;D

Got it myself that night but it was a funny story for a few days.   :)

They've since been deleted so, never happend, right?   8)   ;D
