Re: I suck. First tip over in 170K
There are two types of LT riders: 1) Those that HAVE dropped it, 2) Those that WILL drop it. I didn't drop my '02 unless it counts when I was trying to put it on my lift by myself and it laid on its side on the lift. I was able to see what I was doing when I swapped out the low beam bulb. I was able to slide it over and off the lift almost upright, then I rolled it back away from the lift and put the kickstand down.
When I was pulling into a gas station with my '05 I tried to avoid a wet spot while starring at it. The bike followed my eyes. I laughed when I landed because of embarrassment and because I wasn't hurt. (I've felt fragile since I got hit on my '02LT) Two guys helped me pick it up. One of the guys said his boss had the same bike. He worked at a BMW car dealership. Someone was selling pins and stickers to "celebrate" such an event. I don't remember what the pin said but the sticker said something like, "If you can read this, stop laughing and help me pick up my bike". If I knew where they are I would send them to you. I try not to ask my wife to do too many things because she's at the end of her rope caring for my paralyzed body the past 5 years. Plus she just turned 60.

Reason: I don't know why there is such wasted space
