Warning...dont leave your bars turned right...
Now I know the bike sits on the stand better with the bars turned left.
Well today I backed my bike out of the garage and turned it right so I could pull away after the engine warmed up.
I came back out a few minutes later and went to sit on her all while pulling on my riding gloves.. Between the right side force and down force of my weight hitting the bike....she kept on going over!
I gotta say, in all my years of riding, never had this happen before. I cant say I got on it any different than before but maybe I did... I know my hands were not on the bars at the time I sat down and that had a bit to do with it in hindsight.
Well, thank goodness im no weakling cause I was able to stop the falling bike just as the floor board struck the driveway and I pulled it back upright. No bike damage, good scuff to the concrete and I almost knocked a fingernail off grabbing at the bars as it fell.
Moral of the story, dont be stupid like I was! Always leave your bars turned left when on the kick stand. Always have your hands ready to grab the bars as you sit down, not preoccupied like mine were. And last, dont sit too harshly like its an old couch in the man-cave....They all had something to do with my close call today.
