No longer a virgin - dropped it yesterday.

There are two group's of riders, those that have dropped and those that will.

I moved from the latter into the former group yesterday.

Lesson learned: always put your uphill foot down after coming to a stop.

I am used to riding in very flat areas. After a gas stop in a very hiilly area in WV on my way to Pittsburgh. I came to a stop and attempted to put my left foot down as I always do. Surprise! The ground was a long way down, and the bike went over with a thud. It was a hell of a struggle picking it up since it had fallen over downhill of a steep incline.

The most damage was to my ego. Just a few scrapes on the corner of the Trax luggage, bar end, and engine guard. The bike has some character now, and so do I!
