been there, done that
. My bike isn't a GS, but I'm tiptoed on it. leisurely stop at a red light turned into a fall-off when I put the left foot down and initially didn't feel any ground there. doesn't help if you negligently let the handlebars turn in the direction of the drop all the while clamping down on that front brake. now I take a quick look before I stop to know what I'm up against. and keep the bars straight. and don't let that left foot step on any loose gravel or oil. (these really are all the thoughts going through my mind when coming up to a stop now).
It's helpful when there's a transient gentleman at the red light next to the interstate on ramp who will come out and help you pick up the bike
