Almost dropped my bike
Wow! Backed the bike out of the garage, and was going to get off the bike to close the garage door. I guess I must have kicked the stand up and forgot I did it. I stood up and went to lean the bike over onto the kickstand that wasn't down. I noticed just as the highway bars were about to touch pavement (almost a 45 degree lean). Fortunately, all those years of roofing gave me the forearm strength to stop the bike from laying down. Whew, that was close! All I could think was "what the hell?" I am very much aware of the kickstand, so I don't know how I got so close to laying it down like that.
