lesson learnt

Stopped at a garage to fill up, knocked it into neutral shut it down filled up, came back out, fired it up, some silly sod only had their bike in a false neutral, luckily the bar end saved anything else suffering damge.
lesson to one and all, either make sure its in neutral or be sure to have a leg cocked over it coz they are bloody heavy old things to pick up and thank you to the fella that ran to help me because i would still be trying to lift it now

I also use the clutch (and the brake) to start the bike - even in neutral...and then let the clutch out...

Ciao, Andreas
