Looks like you JUST missed the dreaded Domino effect.



Nothing like having a 6 bike garage. Keep the cars outside.

I wonder if that is a private garage or a dealer work shop. Either way not good, especially if it's the latter. :D

Judging by the wooden shelves, wooden work bench and the riding boots in the corner I;d say that's a private garage. fire regulations prohibit a commercial shop from using wooden shelving or benches.

DOUGHT!!!!!!

I HATE when that happens. I had mine in the shop when Hurricane Ike came through Houston. I have known the owner since I was 8yrs old. An Oak tree fell through the front of the shop missing my wing by about 7 feet, but hitting 4 other bikes. Bubba paid for all the damages out of his own pocket (including buying one that was totaled) until insurance paid him. He is still fighting over damages that are not completely finished.

I am assuming someone trusted that cheap wheel clamp.



P.S. We are looking at the good side of the bike. :(

I think I can top that. I took my 1500 to a shop for estimates after a crash. While I was standing there with a broke rib giving info to one of the service guys, a kid comes out of the shop on a mini bike and runs me down. You talk about some folks pissing all over themselves. :cheeky1:

It would had probably helped if he had tightened the strap before letting go. Them wheel chocks just don't hold them up on their own.:shock:

Would have helped if he had use a ratchet style strap. That is a prime reason that I will not use the type with the spring loaded jaw that is "supposed to" bite into the strap and keep it from backing off.
