Stopped by a friends house today with the bike. He rebuilds Japanese bikes as a retirement business. He identified these as the bobbins for the track stand, although he couldn't identify the brand.
After I left his house and drove home, I managed to drop the bike for the first time (second time in my life I've done it). Decided to practice hill starts (a non-issue for scooter, but a big issue around here for "real" motorcycles) Took my left foot up too quick as I was getting going and then stalled out. Foot slid out as I was putting it back down. Bike appears to be totally undamaged except once scrape on the OEM saddlebag, and a nick on the left hand guard. Turn signal was resting on pavement, but not damaged. Apparently saddlebags keep the bike just upright enough!
Folks drove by a few seconds later asking if I was hurt, and I replied only my ego.. Pleasantly surprised that I could lift it back upright by myself (even using bad technique). Give it 10 minutes for the fluids to settle and it started back up.
Went back to practicing and found that I actually was feeling much relieved.
