out this morning, lost front end on wet leaves in a car park, only going at walking pace. Very pissed off!

Hate it when that happens. It's one of the reasons I don't have a bike I like the look of and one which is designed to be dropped.
If anything, every time I drop it, it makes it look better. One of the advantages of a BMW - as part of ownership you're expected to beat them into a more visually appealing shape.
Seriously though, this is why having some protection is worth the cash - it won't save you money (the cost of protection will probably equal the cost of one nasty drop like that) but it'll save you hassle and heartache.
**Had a trail bike **
left it parked for a few minutes, gone. Valued at less than excess got nothing for it. Police used to phone and ask if I'd found it yet(**no comment about that).
so easily done mate,still a bummer i know
mine stays in the garage.
Just getting out of the village would be quite a feat. Farmyard material everywhere, wet, ice and leaves not a good combination
Glad your ok but I know that feeling look at the damage to your baby
gutted 4 ya
brother how much u want 4 the old girl ?
myself and you almost feel cheated when you come off at that pace. But any one you can walk away from is a good one. When mine happened, got the bike fixed up and sprayed, parked outside the paper shop and the twatting thing fell of the stand, on the same side
almost dropped my VFR last winter, while seated and back paddling the bike out of a parking space i slipped on a frozen squashed Mars Bar(true story), my right foot shot out from under me, just as well i'm sturdy as i managed to stop the bike as it toppled over.
Man v's falling over VFR....man wins.

Sympathy for you.
I've done that on wet grass. I must have touched the front brake without realising. You go down so fast you don't know what's happened until you land on it.
