Ok this has to be shouted.
I DROPPED MY MOTHERFUCKING BIKE in the MOTHERFUCKING PARKING LOT.
There. I feel better. Well, ok, no I don’t.
Because, you know, I DROPPED MY FUCKING BIKE.
God I hate when I do this. And I drive a big plastic monstrosity, a trophy 1200 (That one ain’t mine, but mine’s just like it, or was until just now when I DROPPED IT!).
It’s the classic one. Kick stand wasn’t quite down and I let go.
The damage is mostly cosmetic, with one busted turn signal (which is of course like a hundred dollar part — fucking british import), and a friendly co-worker helped me get it back on two wheels so I didn’t blow by back picking it up, which I have done before with other bikes.
But christ. Just what I need to start my evening…

Several wisecracks come to mind, but I just can’t. I feel your pain. When I dropped my Hawk years ago, I crack a rear turn signal (
OK, what the fuck, I did not type that half-assed shit up there.
Can you write a prescription for that, doctor? Maybe my insurance will cover it.
Wanna know what makes me feel better on a day like that?
Like after more than a dozen frustrating calls to Mazda and friends because my Check Engine Light came on last Tuesday, my warranty expired Saturday, and the shop couldn’t get me in until Wednesday(yesterday)?
That makes me grin and forget how ticked off I am. 🙂
Sorry for your pain. But I just have to say: YUM.
Glad you dind’t lay it down on the road Karl. If it has to go down, better in the driveway.
Merrick, sweetie, you talkin’ about me, or my bike? B^)
Well, in this particular instance, I was referrencing your bike. Although that descriptive term is highly applicable in both fields. (The yum for you came a while ago, and there wasn’t really any way to comment on it, so… 😉 I might even make it a “YUMM” (note the double M) if it were a picture of you *on* your bike! 😉
Besides, who’s been talking about who, eh?!
oh, man. i’m so sorry! happens to the best of us. the worst is when you drop it and you have the kickstand down, or when you get to a stoplight and forget to put your feet down. that’s never happened to me, but i’ve seen it! pretty damn funny.
