I'm pretty sure there was a thread for embarassing newbie mistakes. But for the life of me, I can't seem to find it. Must be my n00b search skills. Anyhow, this happened about a week ago. I parked my bike in neutral and went to do a quick shopping run. Came back 10-15 minutes later and the bike won't start. No response, no nothing from the start button. Checked gear - Neutral confirmed. Kill switch was not on. Kickstand was up. Retried a couple of times, still nothing. Then a minute or 2 later, realised ignition was NOT turned on... (d'oh!) ](*,) Turned the key, hit start button, engine growled and I rode off with bright-red face steaming inside my helmet.
