Close call today!

I went for a quick blast around the local back roads toady. I got back home , flicked out the side stand and as i was putting the bike`s weight on it, the whole assembly spun round.

It left me with all the bike`s weight on my left leg ( luckily i`ve been gyming it up lately!! ).

Managed to get it upright and had to rest it against the wall so i could get the garage open.

No damage done thankfully. Just a small part of the casing has come away where the lower bolt goes in. Only one bolt was left holding the bracket on with about two threads.

Found some bolts to replace the awol ones and got them torque`d and loctited in. Morale of the story ` check you nuts`.

Yeah it was. My garage door is one of those up and over types. There I was stood holding the bike thinking how the f**k am I going to do this.
