kickstand down?

if not, maybe the switch is broke and thinks it down, thus killing your bike.

i'll admit it, i havnt used my brain in a long time, and i just graduated, haha

i figure since i havnt rode my bike in 4 months it was clogged. as for the bike going into gear, i was starting it on my stands so i didnt kick the stand all the way in as i thought.
