I have a close co-worker who is an avid bicycle rider. Recently he returned from the Cycle Oregon, an approximate 400 mile ride around the state on backroads and mountain roads. It is not a race, but a tour and takes about a week.
Anyway he was telling me this story. When he travels with his bike, he carries it on a roof-top bike rack, the kind where the bike is mounted upright. One one occassion a while back, he was coming home, hit the garage door opener and proceeded to drive into the garage, with the bike on top. Crash!! The bike hits the lintel on the garage door. He immediately stops then puts the car into reverse. Unfortunately for him, he did not realize that the bike had been knocked off his car and he proceeded to back over it!
:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
Fortunately, he was laughing along with the rest of us.
I then recalled an incident more than 20 years ago. Once, I was in a hurry to leave the house. I ran down to the garage, jumped in my car, hit the garage door opener button, started the car and got myself belted, put the car in reverse and started to back out.
Except the garage door was still closed.
I hit the door and punched a hole in it with the tow hitch. Fortunately, I do no other damage. I shuold add that this happened just a couple of days before we were schedule to put the house on the market and have an open house. :whacky:
Oh well, as I constantly remind myself, when you have a dumb head, your whole body suffers. :blackeye:
