Here is my low tech solution for driving my Mustang into the garage, so it is perfectly positioned every single time.
I duct taped a 2"x2"x3' piece of pressure treated wood to the floor on my side of the garage where I park my Mustang for the winter season.
I need to leave enough room to pass by in front of it to get to the tool chest in the corner and not have certain people scratch it when walking by , and enough room behind it so the descending overhead door doesn't blemish my baby's bumper.
When I "feel" the tire hitting the wood, it's time to stop and let the car slide back just an iota.

We have the same situation. And woe be unto you if you do hit it...

I gave up critiquing women drivers when I saw Shirley Muldowney running top fuel licencing runs at Cayuga Drag Strip in the early seventies. A few years later another lady won the Heavy Eliminator class causing much pain and chagrin to many of my friends running the same class.

Hey now...if he pisses me off that bad, I'll just 'bump' into him.

I don't want to hit the bike...'cause at least I could sell it.
