    Oops

    So I've got my two bikes parked at the end of the garage, with some empty cardboard boxes lined up in front of them, so stupid me will hit the boxes first if I am driving the car in. Well, stupid me did hit the boxes, but the boxes then hit the bikes, with the result that the Enfield tipped over onto the ZR7. AAAaggggggghhhhhhh. BUT ... I was very, very lucky. No dents, no damage to the ZR7 (even though the Enfield's mirror wiped its way down the ZR7's tank and onto the ground. All that happened (as far as I can tell) is that the very end of the Enfield's clutch handle broke off when it hit the floor. Still usable/rideable. Maybe I should stop driving cars.

    2002 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 (black, definitely slower) ... yep still got 'em both

    ...or admit that boxing should stay in the ring and not the garage

    At least there was no real harm done that can't be fixed simply.

    You could have still used the boxes but wrapped the bikes in bubble wrap and a few layers of Styrofoam S's..

    Yowza! Sorry to hear that. Glad no serious damage occurred, however.
