Dropped my bike today

I guess I am getting old because I forgot to put the kickstand down when I took the Honda off of the stands. No major damage, just minor scratches on the bar end, and clutch lever.

Yeah, me too. I cursed myself out. I had to readjust the left handlebar, but picked it up rite when it happened. Washed it, then started it.

I used a black sharpee to cover up the bare metal on the clutch lever, bar end, and rear spool. Just glad nothing broke.

Eeek! Glad it didn't do much damage!

I took my track bike off the stands a few months ago. It was parked next to my street bike. The kick stand was "down", but apparently wasn't REALLY down. It was like slow motion, but so fast I couldn't stop it from falling onto my other bike. It caught just right, so that if I lifted the track bike, the street bike would fall over, but if I moved the street bike back to normal resting position, the track bike would have hit the ground (it was perfectly balanced lol). I ended up having to find a neighbor to come over and help me lift one, while I held the other. Fortunately, I just got a few scrapes on the track bike. Street bike was fine. Definitely could have ended up way worse. You can bet your that I double check the kick stand EVERY time I take it off the stands now!
