    Stupid Incident

    So, who can beat this,
    This morning my local Triumph dealer collected my bike as promised, I parked it on the drive awaiting their arrival, and fitted the disc lock.

    The driver called me and said I'll be five mins, the shop is just down the road.

    I went out to the bike with the keys to wait, my elderly neighbour came out and asked what time my wife was going to the airport, so distracted me, at that the van arrived, the driver opened the rear doors and lowered the ramp, THEN, the neighbour the otherside said she needed to get out, he was blocking her drive slightly, anyway, cutting the story short, I jumped on the bike, started it and moved a foot if that, then the disc lock did it's job, the bike went over  :233:, I rolled down my drive, hence to say I now have a scuffed rear hand rail, the engine bars did their job, albeit slightly marked, and I have a nice graze and a hole in my elbow, the driver helped me stand it back up and load it on the van, but I guess the moral of this story, don't rush, and it just shows you don't have to even be moving to loose skin.

    Why did the photo come out sideways, when it uploaded the correct way  :084:

    That there looks like an A-one, certifiable "boo boo."     :745:

    Sorry you bruised your baby, and your body.      :189:

    But hey---use this opportunity of pain & suffering to get plenty of sympathy from the missus!    :017:

    Why did the photo come out sideways, when it uploaded the correct way

    It's due to the EXIF]
    Why did the photo come out sideways, when it uploaded the correct way

    It's due to the EXIF orientation flag contained within the image. The orientation tag indicates the orientation of the camera relative to the captured scene. This determines which way up the image appears.

    When viewed on your phone it may well show "upright" as the phone compensates, but that's not always the case when uploaded or viewed on external software.

    https://support.iadea.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001863803-Image-Orientation-Not-Correct-Exif-Orientation-

    In this instance your photo is appearing as it was taken in relation to the camera's sensor i.e. tag is "8" . Essentially it appears like that because that's actually how you took it in reality.

    The bike passed it's mot with no advisories so happy days, that helps to soften the pain of my elbow and arm, so happy chappie now.
    The damage to the bike is very minimal, a few minor scratches on the nearside engine bar and rear grab rail as I thought, I called in the dealer after I dropped the wife off at Birmingham airport, obviously everyone in the shop heard what I did, but I was cool with that as they know me.

    I wear my helmet even to move or load.  The head is less forgiving than elbows.
