Dropped the wing

Taking it off the trailer i lost it and it went gently on it's side on the trailer. Now, lying awkward and weighing 430 KGs could i get it upright, no way. Calling on friendly neighbour time, 2 of us, no way, 3rd neighbour called to action and we just made it. What an effing lump.

Thinking of exchanging for a Honda C50.
Neighbour 2 asked why i needed such a big heavy monstrosity. I had no answer for him.
I pick up the CB in the morning thank christ.:ph43r:

you have my sympathy

I know the feeling, its going and you can't stop it.

I hope not too much damage as you do keep your bikes tidy.
We saw a full dress Harley go over at the Ace cafe last week, made a few crunching noises, that was heavy to pick up.

Thanks all

Few minor scratches on the engine cover, no prob.


Kam, if it was a girl i may have been able to get it up ?????:biggrin::biggrin:. But the beast was lying on a bouncy trailer, couldn't get a grip.

Jimmy S, rich, poor, irrelevant, no one likes to see ones bike go over. Thank's anyway.

Funnily enough i had a bit of a giggle when it went over, from day one i have been waiting for the day, but didn't expect it to go over on a friggin trailer.

PS, how did the sausage meet go, not read too much about it. (mind we have been travelling) 

Time for a few Amstel by the pool:smiley::smiley::smiley:
