I Didn't Really Drop It!!!
« on: October 16, 2015, 08:42:21 pm »
I was on my way to work and was in a hurry. Part of the way down the street I realized I didn't fully secure my helmet.  I pulled over at a gas station and stopped but didn't put the kickstand down. Somehow I managed to get off balance while securing my helmet and the bike started falling.  I grabbed the handlebars and held on for dear life but ultimately it was too heavy to hold and I had to lay it down gently. Nothing broken, no dents, no scratches so I'm not sure if this counts as a drop.

PS - 2 nice men standing at the corner did run over and help me pick it up.

Oh yes, not only is it a real Drop, but it's the very best kind - the kind where you manage to lay her down gently and neither you nor Connie was hurt!  And so it has now become my sad duty to confirm you as the 559th recipient of the uncoveted Connie Droppers Anonymous Award.  You have yet another tale to share around a Rally campfire.  My sincerest condolences!
