She took her first nap
It is the middle of school holidays, so have been busy keeping the kids happy. This means no time for riding.
Today I found a couple of hours free on a sunny spring day to get out and run some errands.
After completing a couple of stops, arrived at the office carpark with many thoughts running through my mind. Be quick, the kids will be back soon and you need to be there when they get home. Do I leave the new $750 gps on the bike? ( the new one does not come with a security lock. Go figure)
Do I put the bike up on the center stand or side stand? Side stand. Kill engine and wait for oil to drain. Back to GPS, what should I do. Decision made to remove it and put in the top box. Focus on getting the GPS off. Remove key.
Oil has drained, time to hop off. As I start to lean to the side stand I start asking myself, did I deploy it or not. NOT. Realised it had gone too far and let her go down for a nap.
Had an initial attempt at picking her up and decided to enlist help. Swollowed pride and went and asked a colleague to assist.
Had the girl for 3 years and hope we don't have to go through this experience for some time to come.
