Versys 1000 - General Chat / Re: Well, dang!

My side stand is pretty stout.  On our two-up rides so far, I just have her hop on first, then I get on the bike and slowly lift the bike to center, off the side stand.  Has worked out so far for me...
I ride two up the majority of the time and use the same technique. I don't trust the side stand completely, so I normally take a little weight off the stand as the wife boards by standing on the left side and pushing right on the handlebars. The side stand would probably be fine, but I have trust issues🙂

“After a late lunch.....” there has to be a friendly quip about “ Dude! How much did you eat?!”

When i take the plastics off i always use a lubricant on the grommets to make it easier to get them back together. Here i just used some  multi-purpose white grease i had laying around.

 Yup, these things happen to all of us. Glad you got off so lightly.

John H Kerr dam.  One of my favorite rides.  Like to take  a break at the North Bend park before heading over to 58 and back home through clarksville.  Gate attendant at the park is an old Kawasaki dealer.

Had a great ride with the wife today, but did have one hiccup. After eating a late lunch, the wife helped me knock the new off the Versys. As she was boarding on the pillion seat from the left, we lost balance and went over on the right side. She jumped off and I did my best to hold up the Versys as she slowly found her way to the ground. Luckily, I had removed the side cases before our ride. Light scuff to right hand guard, light scuff on exhaust shield (most visible damage), and light scuff to the outer point of right signal. I'm amazed at how tough the turn signal was. I would've bet money that the signal would have snapped, but it didn't.  The wife was bummed, but I told her not to worry. I've, unfortunately, dropped bikes before in parking lots. I told her it happens.
