Re: A Close Call
Ah, don't feel bad, you're in good company. (I use the term "good" loosely.)
First day of ownership - I'm putting the LT in the garage after the obligatory photo ops in the driveway. Pulled it in, not quite straight for me, and tried to do what I always did with my 1400 Intruder - roll back with my feet pushing. Well, with the seat height being considerably taller than the Suzuki, my foot slipped out from under me, and the opposite foot then pushed me to one side. The big girl then pinned me to the garage wall. Not far enough to go completely over, but too far for me to catch and stand her back up. So, here I am, unable to get off the seat with my leg pinned, and unable to stand her back up with no leverage on my leg to do so. After several frustrating minutes, I finally broke down and began blowing the horn to catch Telle's attention in the house. Once she stopped laughing, she helped me get out of my predicament.
Had I been single, I would have starved to death out there.
