Sadly, couldn't muscle this - was on the ground before i knew it.        

Didn't expect the leaves to slide out on me. Someone had recently spilled oil in the same spot and the leaves accumulated over it - didn't realize this until recently when i was cleaning then up. So Wet, oily leaves + braking from having to wrench the bike up the drive = Dropped bike.

Luckily it's only around 30 dollars worth of repairs - all replaceable stuff. My clutch lever is in a C shape and is pretty gnarled up, but it still "works", just have to reach for it.

I'm sure dropping one of those big bimmer bikes (that's fun to say...) is pretty teeth grinding, considering they're not too cheap last i checked.
