My bike tried to break my leg this week - luckily my wife was on hand to help me out. The GS usually lives in a mate´s garage about a five minute walk from home. But about once or twice a week, I ride it to work so I park it wedged between my car and a brick wall on my off street parking outside the house. I try to get it really close and then the missus moves the car so I can get out in the morning. The other day I got it really close so it was a real squeeze to get it off the centre stand. I managed to push it forward but my right leg was too close to the stand and got caught by the stand as it sprang up into the stowage position. I was left on one leg trying to support a 250kg motorcycle and with my right leg in agony, whilst yelling through my helmet to my wife to help. I couldn´t move - even if I had dropped the bike it would have done me some serious damage. She was still sat in the car waiting to re-park and it took a minute for her to realise there was something wrong. Eventually she got out and pushed the centre stand down so I could get me leg out. No major damage done except a bit of bruising and I was able to ride off to work but a scary moment during which I did not love my f**king motorcycle!
