I was leaving from getting a MRI done in my ankle and the parking space was sloped the way I was facing which made it difficult to back out with my ankle. There was no cars to the left of me so I attempted to ease out to the left in first gear I made the turn about half way and the bike stalled and stopped dead in its tracks and lunged to the left and I could not hold it up. So I eased it down as easy as possible but I still damaged the left air cleaner cover and left emblem and left turn signal. Hindsight Tells me I should had been riding the clutch and been more aggressive :redfaced:

Sorry to hear about your mishap. You can always get your bike fixed, glad you didn't hurt yourself, at least you never mentioned any damage to yourself, besides the ankle issue, hopefully it won't cost too much to fix. :)

Sounds like a lesson learned, and the emblems should be off anyway!! :bigthumbsup:

If the emblem had been off, he would have ended up with a nice scratch and possibly a dent in the side of his tank. My 109 rolled itself off the side stand while I was letting it warm up to don my helmet. My Boulevard emblem saved my tank. I have contemplated removing it to clean it up, but don't know if I want to lose that cheaply replaced bit of insurance. And, since I wasn't even near my bike when it tipped, it fell full force. Cracked the arm of the left turn signal, broke the tip of clutch handle (which was replaced for free by dealer), scratched Boulevard emblem, put 2 small scratches in air box, and scratched the chrome rear fender strut. I'm glad the tank survived.

if i ever damaged the tank, id have it repaired and have the bottom seam on the tank removed. it would give the tank a real nice look.
