Slight over-enthusiasm getting up the driveway. Lesson learned. :lol3

Uh oh, Toyota problems on the Beemers! :rofl

Sorry man. And the door didn't even need replacing.

Scubalong 03-02-2013 08:21 AM

I feel bad for the bike :cry

PatrickM 03-02-2013 10:23 AM

I'd be surprised if the bike wasn't still rideable.

I've run into my garage door a few times, but have never driven through it!

I would love to blame the bad fuel injection for my mishap, but really it was just a case of not having my wrist flat enough, so when I bounced over the transition into the driveway the throttle got away from me. I wasn't 100% focused, and that's what happens when you get lazy about how powerful and unpredictable a moto can be.

The bike is looks fine, apart from some major scratches in the windscreen. I was planning on pulling that off and painting it anyway, but I have a lot more motivation now. My XD3 took a good knock, but it's 5 years old now, so I don't feel terrible about having to replace it. I haven't had a chance to ride the bike because of this:

The front wheel and bars look straight, I'll take it for a little spin tomorrow and see how it rides.

Always. I'm happier when the photo is someone else standing on their dick, but when it's your turn you have to just go with it.

Not quite that extreme, but there are two ways to get up our driveway. One is slow, careful, and not particularly fun. The other involves a blip of the throttle to get over the transition at the end of the drive way. I'll probably be going with the former from now on :lol3

Funny thing... Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday when I got home I pulled up behind the car, which is stupid, because then I have to back down again and line up to the left of the car (you can see the car's tail lights through the 'ventilation' I've added to the door). When I pulled up Thursday I was thinking about how I had taken the wrong line 3 days in a row, so I changed my line to the left just before going up over the curb. Good thing I did, or things would have been a bit worse.
