Used bike adjustment

It has been a wild ride on the new Vulcan 1600, both literally and figuratively.

First I was riding yesterday and pulled the bike back in to the spot I chose to park it which consisted of a ride over the yard for 30 feet followed by a pop up onto the drive in front of my car. Well that turned into a slide out coming back onto the drive. I gave it some gas to keep from dumping it and came up too far and clipped the front bumper of my car breaking the right turn signal housing and scratching the right front quarter panel of my car.

So now I have a process of backing the car out into the drive, pulling the bike up behind my wife's car, pulling my car back into position, and then riding the bike out. Do we have an emoji that shows you bashing your head against a wall? God I felt dumb for trying to save 5 minutes and costing myself whatever a new set of turn signals will cost since the ones on there are aftermarket and I have no idea what to get to replace one.

- I broke a signal and scratched my car

+ I didn't drop the bike I've had a week in my driveway
