Don't you just hate it when you do stupid? I did the same thing last week. It is even more embarrassing when you fail to notice it until the bike cuts out when you put it in gear . . .

Welcome to humanity, where failure is not an option but an event.

When that happens tell yourself you are just testing the side stand switch.
