got my motorcycle stuck in the bathroom...

There was a violent storm that blew through when we were camping. I forced my little motard into the bathroom (it didn't really fit well through the door) to protect it.

Getting it back out was even more difficult than getting it in there in the first place. I tried approaching it from several angles, but it still kept getting jammed between the doorway and the privacy wall. Hilarity ensues:




It's a classic. Thought you guys might enjoy it. It is available in HD, but I couldn't figure out how to post that here without it being HUGE.**


**EDIT**
LOL. It is in 720. Man, my failboat has docked.

Why didn't you just drag it to where you needed it to be to get out the door? Or it's probably light enough that you could've popped it up on the rear wheel and got it out.

edit: LOL - "oh for crying in the sand"

It didn't fit that angle. And I can't just lift 300lbs up onto the rear wheel. And even still, it wouldn't have fit through that door. I tried figuring out how to approach the angle, but there was no right way. I tried dragging it one way and then the other once I was at the doorway (you can't tell that very well in the video), but it was too long and the handlebars too wide to fit. In the end I just had to scrape parts on the way out, just like I had to get it in.

That's wild, I thought creepy old people only hung out in the mens rooms at forest preserves.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
