Hi, my name is Kris and I'm a Connie dropper. 🤣
« on: August 01, 2019, 12:52:10 pm »
It happened when I got home early one morning. The the sun was just starting to come up, after riding several hours after sunset the night before and spending a few hours at my girlfriend's house. For some reason I didn't pull into my normal spot under my carport.🤔 I think I was planning on washing the bike which is very usual behavior for me. 🤣 Anyway, I backed the bike up sideways in the driveway, put the kickstand down, and started to get off of the bike. The concrete where i put the stand wasn't  exactly level and the weight of the Fat Ninja was just too much. I feel like I was thrown into the street. No tip over bars or frame sliders so I broke and scratched a little plastic. I also bent the shift lever. 🤦‍♂️

Chorus..."Hello Kris."

Admitting it, and a picture to boot, is the first step in spending lots of money to repair.

You will recover.

Hello Sirk.
My name is Ted and I too are/am? a Connie dropper..

I dropped mine "while at the National" on a gravel road.
Scratched/gouged from end to end on the left side..    :-[

Ride safe, Ted

I have not dropped mine I should have added...but the closest I come is when trying to maneuver it into its slot between 3 or 4 other bikes so when I do drop it it will probably take out at least 2 others... :))
