Re: Center Stand Collapsed I am OK
Gruivis - I pushed my LT forward to start moving and in an instant the bike was over on it's right side. I managed to get my right foot out of the way (just quick reflex I guess) before the 800 lb beast came crashing down. The only damage, besides short of a heart attack, was a bent right rear brake pedal and of course the center stand. My first thought before I saw all the damage was that I must have pushed the bike to the right instead of ahead and thought that after all the miles I put on her I am beginning to loose it. Well, not yet. With the help of 2 forum members I have contacted, one that will supply me with gussets, and the other with a center stand, I'll have her up (literally) and running soon. Thanks for the concern. Haven't gotten any sympathy from BMW yet, should I hold my breath? In all seriousness, thanks to fellow members for your help and understanding.
