Ok My vtr 250 has been blown over by the wind here in Adelaide on 3 seperate occasions. I acctually witnessed the two first blow overs. The last blow over had it land on a pole dent the tank and scrape the exhaust and a few other little bits. In the end $3500 insurance claim. One thousand dollars for a tank Any way the bike is mainly for commuting, I want to ride it to work/tafe but I dont want to deal with the drama of it falling on some one elses vehicle one day. Any soultion apart from buying a bike with a centrestand ?, I was thinking of carrying around a sand bag to lay accross the kick-stand.
