Wet shoes and center stand don't mix.
« on: October 17, 2011, 12:45:18 pm »
Didn't think I'd be posting in the topic. Was in the garage installing my new H.I.D system. It rained all day Thursday...........hence the wet shoes. I was attempting to put the bike up on the center stand when my wet shoes slipped off and down we went. Only damage use a bent highway peg bracket on the right side. I got lucky.
Does this mean we get a "Re-Do" on life too?

Ohh Doug, I thought I taught you better than that. You darn youngsters just never learn.
It happens crazy fast doesnt it?  When my centerstand broke all my weight was transferred in all sorts of crazy directions. Very sorry to hear about the drop. at least it was only the peg, your bike is beautiful.
