Well, I'm glad to get this formality out of the way.
Hi All, I'm speaking of the mandatory bike flop following a build.
I went to explore a nature trail that my grand daughter could enjoy from a bike seat and took the touring bike for a final fitment ride, it's now perfect. A gust of wind in the opposite direction from what had been blowing blew the bike over onto the drive side. It sounded nice and solid when it fell over, nothing knocked loose or out of adjustment with the only damage a scratched rack and a brake lever with more scratches.
As for the nature trail... it's been neglected and pretty much a mountain bike path now. The T bike did well over everything including some large tree roots and was only handful on a very steep decent where I couldn't get as far as I would've liked behind my saddle. It'll be fine for my grand daughter.
