On a cold Canadian April Morning...Me and my Versys have a little spill. Cold tires and cold pavement are never a good combo. Be safe out there everyone!

He probably left the kickstand down . I didn't hear the kickstand clunck on its way up , he exited the driveway on his right handside but as soon as he turned left ..... Kaput ... !!!    Some bikes don't start or go in gear if the kickstand is not all the way up . same as cars that don't start unless you depress the clutch . Well , lesson learned , fix it and don't forget your kickstand again . It could have been worse . We all have been there , go home , hug and kiss your family and crack a beer while you think on the cost of your repairs .

some cheap sliders $50  and a set of crash bars $220 would have saved you a lot of plastic.
That sucks man. Glad you were okay.
at least it was close to home, it sucks when you're a distance from home and the first thought upon looking at the bike laying on the ground is "uh oh, hope it still works!" thanks for sharing your bad moment though. As long as you can walk away fine, it's just a good story and a good reason for your friends to bust your chops.
The temp was 0C Tires BT23s the front had 3k and the rear about 5k on them.
I didn't forget, The bike has a kill switch if the kick stand is down of even slightly down. If you watch again you can see me lift it up leaving the house and putting down after I lift up the bike.
we're both ok...$250 in parts. 
The road was clean. When I went back to pick up the bike pieces I couldn't see anything out of the ordinary.
