Well I went and did it, I was doing figure 8's in parking lot and drop my GL1100. Used the Palladino way to lift bike back up, got back on and finished my figure 8's. thanks

Welcome to the club!!:D:D:D:D:D:D

I quit counting how many times mine took a rest break on me. Now have a new fairing to put on her this winter, old one still hanging on for now.

Also fixing to add a sidecar so she won't have the tendency to have the droppies anymore. :cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

My most notable and public droppsie.

Welcome to the club, many of us have done it, and several will admit it.

Several times, and all very public. I'm just glad they were all low speed parking lot maneuvers.

Backing over rounded curbs seem to be my weak spot. The bike always wants to seem to tilt over right when my feet are furthest from the ground. Especially two-up.

Did your bank angle sensor work? :D
1100 doesnt have a sensor-- you got to shut it of with a key.

no fun but it happens to often. Went down a road in Virginia this month that the GPS claimed to be a good road. It progressively turned worse and then more so. Ended up on a dirt bike trail that my son said he wouldn't take his dirt bike on. The wing as a handful on that one. dropped it 3 times before we got have that "road" Chocked it up to a memory we couldn't replace and decided to never trust the gps without a map backup LOL
