Welcome to the TOC...Tip Over Club

I joined almost a year ago when I forgot to put the Kickstand down after stopping for gas.

We even have a special thread dedicated to us somewhere on the forum.

I bet if you had a shiny CHROME dip stick you wouldn't forget to put it in first

2 weeks ago on my mountain trip------ very first gas stop. Fueled it up and moved it to a parking spot to free up the pump because IT WAS SO BUSY PEOPLE WERE BACKED UP IN THE STREET! Fell on top of me----all 270 pounds of me---it being in the hills I could not get up. 4 chips on the bottom left bag. I hate doing stupid stuff.

I had a derp moment 1 time at the post office. I get back to my pin, grab my gloves from left saddle bag, i close it and the bike falls to the right in slow motion, fairing went flying. Got the engine guard and mirror only.
I might need a kick stand on the right side too
