Woo hoo! Add me to the first drop list! I rode my bike to the office, pulled into a parking space, put the stand down, put my feet down, held the bars to dismount, and as I was just climbing off, the kickstand folded up and the bike dumped over to the left with me on it. I was able to lift it back up and no harm was done. My theory of using an Agri-Supply tool tube on each side of my HB crashbars to absorb crashes worked. There is no damage to the bike other than the bottom mounting bracket of the tool tube, which broke all the way through. I have a spare tool tube at home to replace it.
My theory was that the bike must have moved forward a bit, or the kickstand foot moved on a little bump on the asphalt.
