After checking the air filter on your brand new bike, make sure the tennis ball hanging from the ceiling (you know, the one that tells you how far to pull the car into the garage...) is not caught up in the handlebars before you roll the bike off the center stand.

It will pull the screw out of the ceiling with enough force to not only chip the paint down to the metal on your brand new tank, but actually put a small dent in it .

I really should have kicked the thing over in the parking lot at the dealership.
