First time ive felt well enough to get bike out, quick blast up to southport
on way home stalled bike pulling out of junction.. didnt have the strength to hold it
so over it went
only person to stop and help me pick bike up was a young girl in a car

Hope you're ok and no/not too much damage to the bike. I stopped to help a poor bugger on a Kawa ER6 on the way home from work the other night. He'd pulled away from a junction, stalled the engine and dropped it. The cage drivers were just driving around him while he was trying (and failing) to pick it back up.

Bummer, but you're OK which is the key.

I ride my K12S around like I own the road, but yesterday I came up to a light and wasn't paying attention and damn near dropped the thing at a dead stop while I was spacing out thinking about something entirely unrelated to staying safe on the bike.
