Was on a nice little ride and saw a big trash pail in the road. Good Samaritan me, I stopped in the road to move it. As I tossed it to the side (it was about a 35 gal container) the bike got unbalanced and fell over, with me still on it.
Ouch.

Hey, I did that a few weeks ago too (sans the pail) and broke a couple of bones in my wrist. Now the bike remains in the upright position all the time (parked in the garage) until I get the cast off.

Not fun at all. Sorry about the broken wrist.
I busted up my leg some, but nothing broken.
Putting a good spin on the situation ... I know now that I can lift the Wing up by myself.

your kick stand doesn't work?
Sorry for the mishaps to the both and hope you heal real fast.
There is always 1 in the road after a good wind here on the mountain. I am use to getting off the bike and moving them.

The rural road I was on did not have any shoulders, just ditches, and I didn't want to stop in the road. Yeah, so I just laid the bike down in the middle of the road, instead. LOL

Some prefer to park that way. Me, I usually use the kickstand unless I'm in a real hurry.
