I also have violated my Connie...
« on: October 12, 2016, 11:50:40 am »
I purchased my Connie about 5 months ago.  There wasn't any room in my garage, so I put parked it in the grass beside the garage and put down the kickstand.  It leaned a little more than I liked, but didn't fall over.  After working in the house for a couple of hours, I came back out and it had fallen to the RIGHT SIDE.  I don't know how in the world it fell the wrong way (not that there is ever a right way to fall...). 

Didn't read the FAQ about everything needed to qualify.

Lessons learned, life sucks when your bike is lying on its side like a wounded animal  :'(.  Don't trust the neighbor kids (I think one of them might have climbed on it), and yes, there are mysterious things out there...

Anyway, it is a mystery to me that may never be solved.  Now do I qualify for a number?

How the hell did that happen? You have to actually push hard to make it fall to the right especially if it is leaned over more than usual.
