Connie is a topheavy beast and ungainly at slow speeds - particularly with a full tank of fuel.  Glad to hear the damage was minimal and you didn't let it ruin your day.  And your incident does qualify you for the CDA Award except for one thing.

You need to be a full COG member.  Don't worry, we don't make you drop her again after you've joined in order to qualify!  Most folks join if they hang around a while and like what we do here, so just drop me a line after that happens and we'll add you to the roster.
