You are correct, sir.
I would be cursing also if I had to pay that much for gasoline.

I pushed mine over myself shorty after buying it, closing the stuffed side bag without realizing how close it was to the tipping point. Turns out they're really not that heavy, when you're embarrassed as all heck.

Actually that picture raises a boat load of questions:

Did you see the prices and faint ? Did you forget what side your kickstand was on ? Did the Jeep open it's passenger door on you putting you into the curb ? Or did you just misjudge where the curb was ?
In any case I hope you didn't damage the bike as much as your pride.
