Couple of close calls but the deed is done..
« on: September 30, 2013, 06:16:38 pm »
Well after a few close calls I finally let it hit the ground.  Just filled up with gas and came to a parking lot at Bear Mtn. NY.  Slow moving and put left foot down on some loose gravel. She started going over and well you know the rest....

She's a '95 and judging from the marks on the upper faring under the mirrors, she's been on her side before. I knew this day would come. All it takes is a momentary lack of concentration.

Ride safe.

Nuff

Connie sure can be a top-heavy beast, particularly with a full tank of fuel.  Sounds like neither you nor Connie was seriously hurt, and that's definitely a good thing. 

And so it has now become my sad duty to confirm you as the 475th recipient of the uncoveted Connie Droppers Anonymous Award.  You have another tale to share around a Rally campfire.  My sincerest condolences!
