Freak garage incident...grrrr...

Very minor. Still pisses me off enough to vent. Long story short: Cleaned up garage yesterday. Raised lift table (unloaded) to clean underneath, etc. Left it up when done, safety bar NOT engaged. Air piston bled off overnight, lowering table. Bike parked just behind it. Rear of the table gouged the hell out of Bad Dad front fender.

Lesson learned: Always engage the safety bar, dumbass.

Greatfullness: It could have been worse. If the bike was parked closer or at a different angle, it might have knocked it over.

Silver lining: It's just the excuse I needed to get that Klock Werks Wrapper I've had my eye on.

Good question. It's a Redline Stands table. It's basically a Chinese knock off of a Handy table. It's really worked great in the couple of years that I've had it. This is the first time I've had it bleed off like this.

In any case, lesson learned and new fender is on the way.

Bummer dude. When I first read the title I thought we were going to have another shark that jumped off the lift like Dan's did, or fell over and was leaning on the jeep when you came out in the morning.

New front fender that is easy. How do you start a flood?
