Classic Drop
« on: October 04, 2008, 11:14:00 am »
So there I was Just filled up the tank, sitting at a stop light fuming because the light was green and all of the cagers were too bust texting to look up and drive. I stood up on my toes to look over the car ahead and see if there was a legitimate reason we were not moving, I guess my Connie was tired and decided she wanted a quick lie down. She started this slow roll to the left, I kept thinking I got it, I got it, then I realized I did not have it. I did manage to slow things down, no damage to the bike  :) but after slowing her down and then picking her back up my back hurt for three days! Worst damage was to my pride it was about 5:15 pm on a busy street and I had lots of witnesses, but of course no offers of help. I guess I need my CDA number now.

No classic would be to hurry up and claim that your toe slipped on something in the road.  I am not sure I have seen to many drop just waiting at a light without that claim. :)  ----------------------------------  I will answer any question.  It is up to you to figure out if I should have.    <p align="left">My Photos<br

That mostly spurious claim you mean. Mr. Gravity loves Connie, especially when her tank is full. I know the sickening feeling you had, she's leaned over, not too far, but you know her mass is going to take her all the way down and all you can do is try to resist as much as possible. ::sigh::. I've had three such 'gentle' lay downs. One of them in my garage, which was probably the best because she leaned to the right for the first time and came down slowly on a bed of broken down boxes.

It is a C 10. I wish I could have blamed it on something in the road. Unfortunately it was all me.
