    Am i the first?

    About a month ago i bought myself a bike. Now this was the 1st bike i'd had since i was about 14. Admittedly i wasn't too good at steering at 1st so for a little bit of practice i did a few laps around my garage.

    So i came home. Parked my car in my double garage. got out of the car and hopped on my bike to do a few laps then go out for a ride.

    BANG .. i'd left my car door open.

    I wonder if i'm the first to hit myself with my own car door

    I once slammed my own head in a car door. Don't ask...

    Daniel, I can't imagine dooring oneself is an entirely common phenomenon, but wear it as a bage of honor!

    You doored yourself! I love it.

    But Foo isn't the place for this thread. You must post to A&S, cuss out the "cager" who doored you, then reply with even more venom against the cyclist who wasn't watching where the hell he was going.
    They told me to wear more lycra, and I said "no, no, no."

    It was high school, I was driving my mother's ancient Olds with doors that weighed a ton. I got in the car pulled hard on the door to close it when a pretty young girl called my name. So I went to stand up and only got about halfway when the door slammed on my head. It nearly knocked me out. Smooth move, eh?

    I believe Charles Darwin was driving a 70s coupe from the United States when he came up with the whole survival-of-the-fittest thing.

    You must have one large garage to be able to ride in it. I ride in my garage, but I hooked to a trainer when I do.
