"BEEP" wtf?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by ngalbrai, Apr 7, 2011.

  1. So there I am this morning minding my own business, making a hash of parking my bike on Sussex street, don’t usually commute on motorbike, new rider, parking skills not refined... OCD kicking in about how I park, anyway:

    “BEEP” whoa, stop, look up, who did that, why?

    No idea, carry on shuffling the bike around.

    “BEEP” seriously, wtf?

    “BEEP” – gaaah who, the…

    ...no, wait, tank bag and horn button touching when bars at full lock

    – what a tool.

    Made me laugh – at myself.
  2. Better the horn than the engine start button ;).
  3. Very funny. Sort of thing I would do.
  4. bwahahaha i've done that before! but i always knew it was me the first time around :p
  5. lol just needs to be sped up and have the benny hill theme music playing, hillarity will insue x10.
  6. If I put my tank bag on then I usually get the horn once or twice turning my bike around in the carport (5 point turn haha). You are not alone :)
  7. classic... I've scared myself a time or two by beeping my horn (usually when turning the indicator off). I usually knew I'd done it tho. That was hilarious!
  8. hahaha, its pretty hilarious when a rider has a brain fart and hits the horn, especially when you see them jump and then look around meekly.

    We all do it :)
  9. Glad we all do it. I did it in traffic the other day, the car in front looked in their mirror, and I turned around as if you blame it on the guy behind me. But there was nobody there.
  10. Ya gotta be able to laugh at yourself. :)
    Good one! :)

  11. HAHA!! Double fail!
  12. Ah love these threads where everyone starts admitting to something they thought they were the only one who ever did it.

    I always do it when there's a car in front doing nothing wrong.
  13. done that before! I just pretend nothing happens when i realise its me :D
  14. I do that with my tank bag :D. Turning the bars left and the horn button hits the corner.
    Also when i wear my thick winter gloves sometimes the tip of the thumb catches the button and does the same thing...
  15. Used to do it all the time when I was first starting to ride when fiddling with the indicators... Gave people walking their dogs a jump :|
