You have my enormous sympathies, it's a bummer when you dump your bike - 'specially when it's a new 'un.

It weren't an SV you dropped though was it? So it's moving anyway.

That's crap.
Next door to our apt in Ireland, lad obviously *just* bought himself an R1. Absolutely beautiful yoke. So, he is worried it was going to get robbed, since we lived in a dodgey area. He wheels it in the alley way, behind the apt, and its the summer, so he just puts the prop stand down on the grass which is fairly baked dry at this point.

Does a bit of double checking, just to make sure its solid, and its bedded in nicely.
Off for a cup of tea in next door, and I was out sitting on the back step, dribbleing on myself...

and theeeeeerre she goes. Slow motion, the stand just drove right through into the grass, and the whole thing dropped on its side.

The pair of us got up in unison, Linford Christie style, hands stretching out, and both of us just didnt make it, as it cracked into the ground. Like a movie. Urgh.

Horrible.
