Just learned a lesson and avoided disaster...
I go to the gym..a lot. I was there about 3 hours this morning doing leg day..yea, I do leg day. That said, I can barely walk right now.
Ive been working here at the house (I work from home) and finished up about 4:30. Took out the trash, started some towels in the washing machine and went to back my Strat out of the garage for a little ride now that the weather is beautiful.
I am in a tee shirt, gym shorts and flip flops. I open the door, get on the bike, check for neutral and start to walk her back....then bang my left ankle on a roller stool and when I say ankle I mean the knob that sticks out. *$&#&*%*$(#))@($*%*% came flying out and I am sure my neighbors need a bath after hearing all that.
Meanwhile I am dropping my bike. My foot refuses to work, my legs are made of rubber (from the gym) and we are going over.
Luckily I was right at the garage door opening and I planted my left shoulder on the framework. Had I missed it, I might have gotten jammed up between the bike, garage door frame on the ground...
I pushed myself back up right with my shoulder and left arm, got off the bike and danced as my ankle throbbing kept increasing.
As I type this, my ankle looks like a black death, a sure sign that I am getting older and cant take the bumps like I used to.
Moral of the story....check around your bike GOOD before backing up. Loosing a leg while walking a bike is a good way of insuring a future paint job and maybe a new bag.
Permission to laugh as my dumbass granted.
