    Ever dropped it?

    I used to work in the city centre, and a guy who used to park where I did had a BMW R1100LT. My bf asked him once if he'd ever dropped it. The answer was yes, more than once, and that it weighed over 400kg.

    If you find the "Stupid Sonja" thread, that's when I last dropped mine.
