Sorry to hear that MV...

But I have had "similar" experience myself, without the actual fall.....

I had brought the Big Bird out of the garage and while still astride the beast, put the stand down to go back to close gates, and it rolled slightly forward and had I not been alert, the bike would've certainly toppled over.....

My driveway is not steep by any stretch of the imagination..... In fact where it was is only the slightest, slightest grade..... I have parked many bikes in this same spot over the years without the slightest indication of them moving against the stand....

I think this is one thing that Harleys have, that Triumph could be best to introduce to our bikes....

If you haven't seen a Harley rock forward on its stand, Its an exiting thing to witness, especially the reaction of the people who don't know it is not going to fall........

Anyhows..... ALL FORUM MEMBERS..... BE WARY OF THIS WITH THE T'BIRD STAND.....
