I finally dropped my bike...
I dropped it twice on the same trip. Thank God for those Givi guards that I put on.
1. Stopped at a dirt road to take a leak and tried to turn the Vee while it was at a stand still. It turns better while in motion. doh! Bike fell. I had to take off my bags to lift the bike.
2. This one was embarrassing. I was pushing the bike at a gas station to get away from the pumps and hit one of the big Givi bags on the concrete guard rail. I could not stop it, it fell with a crashing sound. A lot of people saw it, even one of those hippie cruiser like dudes. A young couple ran over and helped me pick up the bike. (There are still a lot of nice folks in the world.) I felt like a donkey`s behind for sure.
