Turn off ignition, turn back on and hit the starter

Could be the tilt angle sensor

I think I would have been less emotionally upset if the damage amounted to write off like staus...

Just embarrassing scuffs and broken screen. Meh. It was bound to happen one day.

Not sure low speed.
My fault. Combination of picking feet up too early with pillion and turning too tight in parking bay.
Fk knows was all shit.

Mock - low speed stack is pathetic. Would have felt better about it if it was a 60kmh spill or at least substantial damage not just annoying scratch and cracked plastics.

No one was hurt I guess thats a bonus.

Sounds a bit like my 1st lay down, went up to Toodyay with the missus on the back about 6 months after getting it and when doing a U-Turn to park outside the Coca-Cola café I stalled it (too slow/not enough revs) and even though I put my foot down the combined weight of me, bike and missus was too much and I had to lay it down :(
Unfortunately/fortunately whichever way you look at it my foot was under the bike and I was pinned laying face down, foot under the bike :blink:
Luckily a guy and his son at the CCC came and lifted it up off my leg with only slight scratches :)

Surely the scratches on your leg will have healed by now!

Some injuries never truly heal, the psychological trauma lives on forever....
