I dropped my bike! I'm an idiot!

...so I went to the gas station to top of my tank and add my favorite fuel stabilizer..i pop off the cap..and the paper seal under the cap sticks to the top of the bottle...didnt notice...poured the stabilizer in and the damn seal falls into the tank...grrrrrrr..so I fill er up and drive home...park it and look in the tank for the seal...cant see it because of the color of the fuel from the stabilizer...drain the tank into a clean fuel can..look in with flashlight...see it under the fuel guage float on the left side....stick my "grabber" tool in tank...cant get it...needs to come forward just a touch...so I get in front of the bike and rock the bike forward...then tap the front brake to jerk it forward
.finally I can get at it...however the kickstand flipped up...i didn't notice and went to grab my tool to remove seal from tank..
and down she went on her left side...im really upset now...im gonna go lick my wounds..250 bucks in damage...
..

Yep, it's not a matter of 'if,' it's a matter of when. Sucks, but it happens to the best of us.

It's a girl on a bike...it's Rogue!
