You're lucky you didn't crack a fairing. The front turn signal must not have hit the ground.

I did a similar thing when my bike was about a week old. One of the neighbors walked by just as I started to move it around the garage. I waved at him, lost my focus, and dropped it! Cracked the fairing, too. I've since replaced the front signals with micro-signals that won't hit the ground.

There was a little port-o-potty sitting on the floor and the crash bar just happened to land directly on it keep the bike a good 7ish inches off the ground. That, and the saddle bag hit the trash can. Luck and luck. Second time I've dropped it now.

Could have been worse...I usually flip the side stand up when on back stand.
My neighbor did what you did but without checking the side stand....cracks on BOTH sides.

Been there, done that. Mine fell and pinned me against my Honda Rebel. I had violated my cardinal rule of not moving the V without straddling it. I might have been able to weasel out, but there would have been damage to both rigs. So, I held on the best I could and called a neighbor from my cell phone (luckily it was in my pocket) and had him come over and lift the V off of me.

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

Yeah, that sucks.

I had lowered my V1000 and had it sitting there - while I was replacing the front fender after installing the fenda extenda.

The bike moved a fuzz backwards and (too late) I realized it was going over. Hindsight reveals that it was sitting much too upright.....

Anyways, I grabbed onto the handlebar, and the bike went over with a fat man attached. I WAS a bit of ballast - so the event was much slower.

New set of handlebars (tweaked 2") and one turn signal assembly.

I got off cheap.

No matter where you go - there you are.

You're lucky the OEM side bags didn't come off! Happened to me twice where a small tip over caused huge damage because they terrible design of the mounting system on the oem bags. they snapped off and then hit the rear fender, breaking it as well.

Oh I have GIVI saddle bags with mounting directly to the frame.. I was not going to finance Kawasaki's Overpriced Saddlebags.
