I have a ghost ..
I know this will sound really strange.. But this is true ..
Today I got out the KLR.. unlocked the steering and turned the key to on.. Neutral light bright green.. .. shut off key.. pushed the bike about 25yds to the driveway.. .. down the kickstand.. turn on the key.. set the choke. and start the bike.. .. running smooth after 30 seconds.. I cut back the choke to about half.. showing just under 1500 rpms.. walk away about 10 steps to grab my helmet and BANG.. Bike on its side.. Got it up.. Shifter in 1st gear.. no neutral light showing at all.. Neighbor across the street.. said he heard the bang and looked. didn't see me .. just the bike on it's side.. Possible I could have had it half out of gear toward neutral I guess,, My heart sank.. I know I will get dings and scratches on it. but less than three weeks old was disheartening to me..
Scratched the faring some.. and the balancer on the left handle bar.. broke the Hand Guard.. I guess I was lucky.. has anyone had anything close to this happen to them?
