the other night I was leaving work and a parent was leaving with her nursery collection at the same time, didnt want to get caught, so was a bit quick and not paying attention. Cut a long storey short I clipped the corner of a kerb with what i thought was my sidestand. All seemed OK and stand operated smoothly, checked next morning and there is a fresh piece of plastic missing from the sidestand area. Not visible from above, only I know its missing. Best not tell the wife part of my 60th birthday prezzies........Crying or Very sad

If it's the piece I think, it's not too terribly expensive to replace. But if it's not visible, it probably isn't a big deal.

Glad you're okay, that's what counts.

Bouncing on asphalt is bad at any age, worse over 60. Phil, thanks for the honest tip and warning.
