Seems I dont know how to use a kickstand...

Moved it into the garage...walked away...Crash.  :'(

At first I thought the stand broke... wishful thinking, I'm just a dumba$$

Some plastics and a mirror are on the way.

Geez it hurts to see her lying on her side like that.  I confess that I've only half-deployed the kickstand on occasion.  It usually happens at the end of a long day, so I try to be extra careful at those times.  Some days "being extra careful" works better than others.  Glad to hear that you weren't hurt and that Connie's damage is relatively minor.

And so it has now become my sad duty to confirm you as the 483rd recipient of the uncoveted Connie Droppers Anonymous Award.  You have another tale to share around a Rally campfire.  My sincerest condolences and Happy New Year!

Thanks Chip - Happy New Year to you too!  Indeed, my ego was hurt worse than the bike, lesson learned.

Guess I better get in on the patch and shirt..

Cheers!
