I officially belong to the LT droppers club(can't remember the correct acronym or name).
Besides my back killing me....and I am GLAD the garage door was closed and noone saw or heard anything, My pride is STILL intact.
Obviously, having stated the garage door was closed, I was home and stationary during the fall.
I was attempting to put her on the center stand(if I leave her on the sidestand afraid she will smoke at startup like my RT does.) So, I had the center stand down and I was leaning it to the right waiting for that comfortable feel of both sides of the centerstand touching the ground before YANKING the heifer backwards. I got the feeling and then I usually have a rocking back and forth and get her to go on the stand about the 2-3x. (there has got to be an easier way...all my other bikes NO problem, all power downward from the leg and little pull from your arms...I know I know) She started going to the right and I knew there was no hope. Slow motion set in and I said "NNNNNnnnnnnnnnoooooooooo" as she fell into my Grill then knocking it backward on its casters(it is 225# and as big as Infinite) and then she layed there and rocked for a second or two. Immediately I went around and ATTEMPTED the lift upwards. Felt the pain IMMEDIATELY in my back...and was very upset.
My 4yo in the doorway saying "I DIDN'T DO IT DADDY!!!!" and then "You did it, you weren't paying attention!!"
So, that didn't help things. I then remembered JUST reading a thread on picking up the LT, so I came back in here and found it. I then went back and since it was on the "passenger" side, I was afraid to really grab that Luggage handle, it being plastic and all.
I said the hell with it, and did it. I got down butt against edge of seat and Lifted...I couldn't get her up....then for some reason I concentrated and stared at my legs as if TOTAL Concentration on USING THEM...and she came up nice and slow.... I then went to set her on her side stand.......I FORGOT I PUT IT UP.....and DOWN SHE WENT!!! (Just kidding...)
So, now that she was up and righted, I did a Damage check....and NOTHING to really speak of. The motolight mounted under tipover wing had a little scuff and where the back of the bike hit the grill, it pushed my CB antenna against the topcase leaving a little black scuff from the antenna plastic...but it wiped off.
Infinite is good as new....now that I got my First Drop Jitters down...maybe I can pull my head out of my tail and in the words of a famous female I will "learn to pay attention"
