Anyone wondering what will happen if you will crash into two cars in a row? You don't need to wonder any more! I've checked that for you >:)

First a description for those who will wonder "what is going on here?" ;)
I started a trip in heavy rain so I had rain protection cloths on me including protection for shoes which I've bought long time ago for my Harley. So I assume that all that is a Harley's revenge :p When I stopped I realized that one of these protections just stucked in foot pad and I could not put my leg on the ground and I hit first car then. After that with a leg still trapped and when I trying to free it I opened a gas accidentaly. Normally I would use a clutch in this case, and if you will look carefully you will see I tried to do that here also, but this is DCT :p and boom, second car.
Damages: one handguard destroyed, one front "tooth" broken, some scratches and distorted this little frame holding the fairing. Total cost of new parts is around 2000 Euro. It is good to have an insurance >:)

Ok, enough talking:

Oh thats was very unlucky, glad your OK and your bike is relatively undamaged. I hope you managed to sort out everything with the other car owners.

Lucky the cars were there to prevent any real damage:laugh: glad you're okay. On a related note Honda really should have put a brake lever on the left hand side to operate the rear brake for the DCT models, it's not like unintended throttle blips are unheard of.

Glad to see it was not more serious. If that second car was a little later you might have got run over,

Glad you are ok.

I was busy admiring a couple of women today - we've had a bit of sun in the UK (yes, really) and they were "dressed accordingly" - and I managed to fall off my mountain bike by riding into a small tree - big bruise on my thigh and bent brake lever - £24... You win on the damage cost. Not sure who wins on the embarrassment situation though!

Blahahahaha... That won the Internet for me today. Sounded like something out of a Adam Sander Movie...

As for OP. Good to hear you're not harmed except for the damage cost...

Bike did pretty well. Grabbing throttle on the way down could happen on either bike - not being able to reach the brake happens. Glad you made it through okay. Bikes can be repaired/replaced.
