That will not do much good if said bike is just sitting outside

Put a cover on it, available from as little as 20$

That is exactly where I laid down the little Ninja 250 I had, at that exact intersection. I learnt from a noob error, do use rear brake on oily, freshly rained on road. :eh: Thank goodness I was almost at a stop when I engaged the rear brake and I wore my gear. Only a bent lever.
