Brain Fart
« on: January 05, 2016, 01:46:33 pm »
So I pull into the parking lot and back into the space. I turn off the grip heaters (30 dergrees), turn off the Gerbing's and then unplug. I go to get off and suddenly, OH SH---!!!! Some idiot forgot to drop the side stand! I've been riding for 40+ years and for the first time ever I don't put down the side stand first. Fortunately the Canyon Cages saved the majority of the plastic. The left mirror plastic is scraped up as well as the bag. Of coarse I said all last summer, "I should get a set of the rear Canyon Cages.......and didn't.  As soon as I got back up from rolling off, I looked around and fortunately no one else was around to see my udder stupidity. Ugh!

I've got a front set on a shelf.   Already have a rear set.  I did the same thing, only in the garage.  Thankfully the bike fell on me so no real damage to it.

At least the garage shelf is being protected. From dust where the box is sitting...   :)
