    Who ever the kid is I hope he's ok. As for gravity, the busa hit the ground in the garage a couple week's ago. In a rush, too much crap in the garage, taking it off the rear stand and going to lay it to rest on the sidestand my foot got in the way or something and it came right over. got the tank, seat cowl, stator cover and the left fairing. Oh well, I wonder what the next color will be?

    Too little too late I know but I always put the bike in gear when parking downhill because I'm worried that this will happen. Thanks for justifying my fears

    Been there done that too. Couple times in fact. Mostly I catch it but not always. The fiddy is good for that since it doesn't have a stand but I've only put it down once since it's so damn light.
