My First

Not bad, no damage at all. Had just checked my tire pressure, had my air compressor plugged in. Was backing the bike out of the garage and the compressor turned on. I thought I could reach over and turn it off without getting off the bike. The bike decided I couldn't and as I leaned over to reach the switch, she came with me and kept on going. It didn't fall all the way down, but the mirror banged against the compressor and folded in. I held the bike from falling all the way down and got it upright without too much trouble. Got the heart rate going a little!

Lucky!   If it was me, I probably would have put the compressor through the side of the fairing.   :))

Glad to hear your tuition in the School of Hard Knocks was so low, Dan.  My own experience is often more like what the Cap'n relates.

And so it has now become my sad duty to confirm you as the 402nd recipient of the uncoveted Connie Droppers Anonymous Award.  You have yet another tale to share around a Rally campfire.  My sincerest condolences!

I accept with humility and grace! :)
