First, let me get this out of the way ... I'm an idiot!
My black wee is 2 weeks and 2 days old with a scant 1200 miles on it, and I've already tipped it over. In fact, in reading the forum posts about people tipping them, I sort of wondered how the heck they could make such silly mistakes. Yeah, stupid me!
I was dropping off a photograph of mine at a friend's house and parked on his super steep road facing downhill. When I climbed back on and turned the key nothing happened and the CHEC message was on. I turned the key off/on again and the same thing. I figured it must be that the kickstand was down, and when I peered down, it seemed a bit strange. I leaned over to get a better view of it, and the bike started rolling downhill, and before I knew it, it was tipping over. It all happened so fast --even though I'm sure it was very slow-- and once the bike got beyond the literal tipping point, there was no return. Down it went, shattering the turn signal light and bending the clutch.
At first I thought I wasn't going to be able to lift. I wrenched on it hard to no avail-- the full tank of gas certainly didn't help -- and it took me three or four tries in different positions to get it back up. My heart sank as I looked at the dangling, naked turn signal bulb ....
I calmed myself down and looked around to see what would trigger the CHEC. You got it -- the kill switch was on. Man, am I a noob -- all I could do was shake my head in disbelief about what dumb move I had just done.
By complete chance I was a half mile from the motorcycle dealer where I got the bike (new and unblemished), so I went by and ordered a new blinker assembly and clutch handle -- 97 bucks.
Oh well, I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, but later would have been nice!
So ... how did you first dump your Vee?
