Of all the places to break a foot.
« on: 10/06/17 04:48PM »
Well darn it, looks like Iíll be in the cage for a while. Just had an accident at work, and broke my left foot just where a motorcycle shifter hits your foot. Since I canít ride home, my bike will have to be stranded at work. My boss is cool, but our shop space is limited. If I canít keep it here until I can ride, I may be in need of someone who can ride it home for me or help transport it.

Now letís see if I can push the clutch on my car...

What the hell!!!

Sorry to hear man...it happens though... hopefully nothing too extreme and you will be riding again soon

If you need help getting the bike back hit me up...I am off this weekend and available to ride it or use a AAA tow (I see that it's probably the piggy BMW)

The r1200r is not exactly piggy lol
Just tie a cord to the shift lever blip the throttle and pull blip shift your way home. I wouldn't mide taking a spin home on that thing.

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the offers and will hit yíall up if it comes to that. It is the BMW, and the R ainít the lightest thing on two wheels but sheís fun.

Practicing driving my car with a space boot. Not as hard as I thought. If McQueen could race with a cast, I should at least be able to commute with one. I apologized to my clutch in advance.

If you need a calmer person to get the bike home, let me know.

Sorry about your foot, hope it heals quickly!
