The mighty Z went down on Friday night

OK so the Title isnt nearly what actually what happened.. simple story and NO damage at all...oh wit tiny one.

GF was on the back after a night out riding...i got off and i think she leaned it upright and made the kickstand slide forward. I saw it start to fall.. i was on the outisde side where it fell so i couldnt hold it up.. but held it enough that it just barley sat down.....only thing was a super small scratch on the case slider.. can find a factory one for like $2 on riderforums.com....so no big deal.. nothing else even has the slightest mark.. but there is now a Passanger off the bike first rule in effect...100% of the time.

Seriously, since when does the driver get off and let the passenger up there to hop off with no bike support? C'mon now bro.

I dont think its a good idea to leave the passengar on the bike by his/her self. Just ask Graffix about that one.
