for me, being OCD about doing things in a fixed pattern is so important, and avoid distractions. once, i was working on the V, drinking beer, and i let the bike down off the swingarm stand. one problem.... i had put the side stand up! i tried to catch her, but down she went. the crash bars saved the day though. an aside, i hate gassing up, as people always want to come over and gawk over the V. (is that a ducati?......) problem is that it distracts you from what you're doing, and you're liable to ride off with your gloves still on the back of the seat, or an assortment of other screw ups.
i had back surgery, and while I'm healing and can't ride, I'm going to tighten fasteners, and other things so that when I'm finally healed, the V will be ready to ride as well. can't wait.
