The stand sunk in and the damn thing tipped over, bending me double and pinning me down. I couldn't move and the bike was too heavy for her to lift off me. It was a very quiet road and we were there about 15 minutes until she was able to flag down a passing car for the 2 occupants to help lift it off. Talk about feeling stupid! Driver error again?
I should imagine you were sore and aching by the time you got help but lucky the weather didn't suddenly change as that would of hindered the matter some what if it had rained lol .
