Good and bad all rolled into one post

Went out in the hills for a couple of hours. It was a really fun ride - one of the best I’ve had. I came back through Burroughs Valley and Watts Valley, which was a new and really fun route.


But then I did something dumb. I mean really, really dumb. I stopped for lunch, hot and tired, and parked the bike. I put the kickstand down - or so I thought. Somehow it wasn’t down, and I dropped the bike. No major damage - mainly to the decals on the left fairing. Bigger damage was to my pride - and my left leg is really sore from being caught under it. This might be the dumbest thing I have ever done and you can make fun of me freely. I’m sitting here beating myself up at the moment. I’ll post pics of the damage later when I am done punishing myself.
