I have to go through them everyday at work, I just ride around em. When it's right before everyones shift starts there'll be a huge line of cars waiting for people to swipe their badges, I just go around the one meant for buses only.
suckers.

Too bad I didn't have a camera this morning. At my work you only have to swipe to get in but when you leave it's sensored. Coming into work I would just go around it cause there's a big enough gap between the end of the arm and the wall but leaving I actually have to set off the sensor and get out that way.

Long story short, the arm came down before I could fully get through and down I went....hard. Stupid me still had my hand on the throttle so I high sided and my bike almost landed on top of me.

Haha, well that sounds a little painful but I still think it'd be funny to watch
