Re: [ST] ouch
> I'm beginning to think that low speed or even stand still drops are a lot more common than I ever thought. I did it with a loan bike. My '99 ST was in for a major service and they gave me a demonstrator 2004 ST for a week. I promptly dropped it that night when I forgot about my disc lock for the first time in years.
Got the t-shirt on that one. I have never *touch desk* dropped a bike
at speed, but dropped my TDR250 in my front garden, my XJ600 when I
moved it about half an inch when parked, with me standing on the
right-hand side. The sidestand flipped up and it went over. And 4
months after I got the ST I pulled away with the disc lock on. That
f'in' hurt. Pride, leg and wallet.
From other bikers I know, I'm guessing that 0 to 1mph drops are a hell
of a lot more common than crashes. But we only tell other bikers about
the slow ones, 'cause they feel more stupid!
