tip over at the pumps
« on: June 19, 2016, 01:07:58 am »
Spent the day stripping all the plastic, re torquing the motor mounts, what a PITA that was. new oil and fitter. Got everything back together, all cleaned up and waxed. Time for a cruise! First stop to fill  her up. 5 and1/2 gallons and ready to go. Tight u turn leaving the pumps, and the next thing I know Connie is on her right side and I am thinking W.T.F. did I just do? Got her back up on the side stand and can't believe there is not a scratch on her. Thanks to K.B. foot forward Hi way pegs and the right side bag not a thing was damaged! I think it's time to start saving my pennies for a set of Murph's tip over bars. This time I lucked out, the worst part is my bruised ego and sore back from picking this beast up with a full tank of gas.

Wow, Jay, you're one of the very fortunate few who hasn't suffered any damage doing this. Congrats!
