The new bike nearly hit the deck, what a save!

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by removed-6, Aug 6, 2006.

  1. Yep, the 600 came within inches of hitting the pavement. The pavement in my back yard that is! I was cleaning the bike (1st time :oops: ) and had been on my son's case to "be careful" around daddy's bike while he was playing and riding his bike around, so I decided to move it out of his way a bit and after I wheeled it back a bit, looked down at the stand to check, as I leaned it over to rest, seemed OK. After I let go, out of the corner of my eye I see it coming towards me :shock: and I had just enough time (and strength) to grab it before it touched down. Luckily it fell against my leg which helped in the save.
    Holy Sh#t! That was close...................won't do that again I tell you now.

  4. Sounds like you and Egiste have stuff in common. Pretty sure that Seany won't want you anywhere near his bike though :p

  5. What a discovery. With legs, which come free, who would still need crash bars.

  6. Nice save.

    Now save yourself time, worry and effort and put it on a race stand when washing it!

    Heaps easier too.
