Cee Baileys vs The Gas Pump
Have to meet BMW Rider at 0830hrs about 20 miles away.
If I sleep until 0800hrs, I will have time to brush my teeth, slap on some deoderant and hit the road.
Hey I'm on the road in time...Whoops my gas light is on.
I'll stop real quick. Gloves off...Bike on center stand...fill 'er up w/ da good stuff.
Good to go..gotta love pay at the pump!!
Gloves on.. Push it off the center stand...
Did I mention that I haven't had any coffee yet??
Whoa, Wait a second...Come Back here you big heavy bitch!!
Straining, trying to pull back towards me, one leg off the ground
CRASH!!! Over she goes. Right against the gas pump.
My Cee Baileys screen is bent in half down against the handlebars and the gas pump.
I yell a quite offensive expletive that immediately summons two guys to my assistance. We stand her up and...
The shield pops into place... No cracks and creases.. Just one rub area at the top where it hit the pump and two scratches on the back where it was smashed into my GPS mount.
The mirror was knocked loose and there is a scrape on the backside of the mirror.
Another scratch on my crashbars and some paint on my Touratech bag rounds out the equation.
The gas pump suffered a gorgeous black mark right down the front. "Don't worry about it" the attendant says, "It will probably wash off." Er, maybe not!

Next time I will get up 5 minutes earlier so I can drink a cup of coffee or maybe I could just skip the deoderant
I made it to meet BMW RIDER and I had a funny story to tell to make him think I'm stupid.
I love my GS and Cee Baileys Rocks!
