So the bike's got lucky this time and you didn't. Sorry to hear this happened. I myself, am not in favor of using the side stand unless I'm forced to park on an incline. Then and only then, will I use the side stand. Too many near misses with people walking past bikes in a parking lot and bumping in to them. If they're not left in gear, then the possibility of rolling forward and rolling off of the side stand. And for the life of me, I just can't see what the problem is with bike owners that can't put the bike up on the main stand. I can do it with just my right hand and right foot. Easy peasy but the trick is to put all of your weight on the foot lever and then pull up with your hand.
I'm a little surprised that with your background in nuclear, that you didn't get this gut wrenching feeling that putting the wood block under the side stand to make it a little more vertical just might be setting this whole incident up for a catastrophic fug up. But I do commend you for self reporting, although if I was your boss, I'd be pissed because you just caused me about 5 hours of paperwork and an additional 4 hours in Apparent Cause Investigation, never mind the fact that I'd have to send you back for remedial training. (You know I'm just bouncing back to my go old days supervising staff at the plant) (tongue in cheek)
