was riding my bike for a evening with the family and my bike stalled on me, which was my fault. The  I went to kick it and it seemed like it was locked up? I couldnt move it. Then I had my boot resting on it and it just started to turn and kicked it fired right up. never had this happen.. am i worried for nothing? Or sound like something?
