    How true! LOL

    Two days ago I delivered my K to a shop and told the mechanic I'd help him unload it. However, before I could get to the bike, he started on his own, tripped and the K came to rest against the trailer's fender. Hope their body shop does good body work.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Looks like I will leave it in gear, or neutral.
