Me Too - where's my pin?
Pulled into the parking lot this morning. Went to whip a u-turn into the motorcycle parking area....and, well, you know the rest. Front end slid just a bit on the wet metal kickstand plates and that sinking feeling suddenly overcame me.
Wasn't a drop as much as a gentle lay over. I did the normal reaction and fought to hold it up but realized we were stuck in a tie and time was on gravity's side so I gently let it rest on the right jpeg, then did the most important thing - look around to make sure nobody has seen this!!!
Luckily, it was a brisk morning and the union folks had moved their day-long coffee break/traffic watching activities inside so nobody was watching as I hopped to one side and with my butt on the seat, walked it inch by inch back upright.
No damage, other than my pride.
