its offical... the zuma went down..

coming home from the loop lunch, i was pulling into my shop which has a painted floor, there was some water at the opening of the door, i was turning at like 5mph and getting on the brakes like 10 feet after the water and BOOM, i was on my ass.

Sh*t Alex I saw the title to the thread and thought you got hit by a cage.

Glad it wasn't serious, but sorry about the ride, bro.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
