Sorry to hear your story,   though I am glad to learn that I'm not the only one in the world that does stupid things.  :157:  I thought it was just me due to my advancing years.     I've not yet moved the bike with the disk lock in place but I have seen it done a couple of times so you are not alone in the world.   

HOpe you and the bike heal quickly.

I reckon the picture came out sideways to give an accurate reflection of where you landed on the deck (sorry!!!)

You would be surprised the percentage of bikes damaged that are not moving 5mph.Hope you put ice on your elbow to keep the swelling down.Heal quickly.

Sorry to hear of your incident - glad you are both not seriously hurt !

Get one of those bright yellow coily “reminder” cables that go between the Disc Lock
and your Handlebars to reduce the likelihood of it happening again !  :138:

Hammerite black satin spray paint is a reasonable match
for touching up the R & G Bars  :028:

Cheers :821:

so if you see someone without one, give them one of yours :-)

...but I guess the moral of this story, don't rush...
Hi Wilko,
I owned my Trophy a week or two and had to rush home quickly...
The end of the story: similar to yours, without injuries, but with a broken gear lever bolt.
It was luck, that the first gear was on, so I can ride home and then to the dealer.
So my moral of the story: Never use the disk lock again. It's a heavy bike, so I think that a disc lock is not recommended.
Additional comment: 80 km/h are possible in the first gear on urban freeway in Berlin.  :008:

Cheers
Klaus
