Well i am :oops:
as today i washed my bike with it facing down my driveway which has a very little slop to it, as i was hosing it off i noticed that i missed a bit and proceeded to wash the bit of dirt off. As i was doing this the bike started to roll down the drive way about 2 metres when the stand folded back in and the bike just fell over onto the grass which was water logged from all the rain we had.
It happened so fast but it was in slo mo if you know what i mean, all i can think about was shit not the tank.
I tried to pick up the bike but couldn't so i called the neighbour, who just laughed at me when he saw it but helped me pick it up.
The only damage was the left hand side foot controls bent in and the left hand side rear indicator housing is cracked with a small peice broken off.
So in all iwas happy with the fall.
And no the bike wasnt in gear as i thought .

I had mine idling in the driveway when I lived in Townsville. just warming up for a ride. I went into the garage and turned to see it falling in slow motion. what happened in the next few seconds is a bit of a blur, I do remember subjecting my neighbours to the world's loudest profanity.

left floorboard spring released itself, scratched mirror, bent driving light, p*ss*d off owner! on the bright side, I could actually pick mine up macca!!! :lol: must have been the adrenalin.

yes that 20 kg difference would probably have had me running to the neighbours also :lol:

it's amazing how such a slow rollover can cause that much damage. I forgot that mine actually broke the rear blinker as well. I had it held together with 100mph tape for about 12 mths.
