My bike needed a well overdue clean (its first since I bought it) so I did it this afternoon. After coming back from taking it for a short ride, I shifted it forward whilst standing to the left side. I put it down on the side stand before it was completely stationary. The next thing that happened woke me up. The next thing I knew was that the left hand grip was just below my knee. I'm surprised that I caught it and yanked it back up in one motion just with my left hand. I would have been pretty unhappy if it made it all the way to the ground. Another thing, Armor All on the seat makes it interesting when taking off a bit more briskly. The pillion seat stopped me from falling off the back!
