Flipped my ATV pushed it back over and it wouldn't start. Thought I messed something up when I flipped it. Turned out to be the kill switch was flipped. Ya, I felt like a dumbass.

no extra points for doing the same thing that most of us have already done... I would say all of us, but some head would get on here and lie and say he had never done it... so i will keep them from having to lie by saying most of us.

The kill switch on the GS is 3 position. And RUN is in the middle, the other two are kill. I'm always trying to figure out why my bike wont start. lol

I thought my kick stand was down when it wasn't. Laid it right on its side nice and easy.

Be ready for the whisky throttle. Happened to me once, but I hit the kill switch just in time. I would have made it into a chevron mini mart. Lol.

If you do this while there are other people around imbues you with a special power that allows you to pick the bike up off it's side with your pinky in about 15 milliseconds.

Doesn't matter what bike.

I once forgot to put my kickstand up after gassing up, - I usually don't even take it down at the gas pump- Boy was I in for a surprise when I tried to lean left around a slight turn, I'm lucky as I was able to pick it up then stop before going off the road haha, happens brah.
