Yes...after riding motorcycles for over 35 years, you knew it would happen. About five years ago(yes it took me that long to fess up) I rolled the Concours out of the garage for the Sunday ride. Parked her on the edge of the driveway on the centerstand to warmup. (You can probably see where this is headed). Rolled her off the stand and thought "I can just mount up without putting her on the sidestand". Threw a leg over and there we went, lucky the lawn was right there, only folded the mirror back and hurt nothing but my pride :8o: So we don't start the day like that any more ;)  2002 Concours  1983 Suzuki GS650MD Katana  AMA # 593738  COG # 8588

 And why is it we always look around to see if anyone saw us?

I always think of it as learning a lesson cheap when there's no damage like that. :)
