When my GSA (15th bike but first one after 18 years away from them) was only a month old or so I pulled into a gas station and threw it up on the center stand without paying attention to how steeply sloped the pavement was - sloped up to the gas pump island. I always sit on it rock it off the center stand. The momentum it built up as it twisted coming off the stand made it impossible to hold up. Pow. Bike had just a couple of little scuffs on the aluminum cases and the crash bars. My self-esteem was nearly mortally wounded and required intensive care (i.e. many hours of reviewing the old photos of me racing, all the trophies, all the bikes I've owned) before it was able to limp along on its own...
