    Actually, in my mind I mean to type out "plug the key into my motorbike and start the engine or something like that", but my vocabularies and my grammar are not enough good.

    See my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    By the way, when saw your corrections I referred the dictionary and looked for the resources on the internet. I understand clearer than before about using "enough".

    Every day, I finish my job at 6pm. Before I walk out of my office, I turn off all the lights. Then I close the door and I walk straight to the garage. My motorbike can is one of hundred motorbikes in the garage, so I use its electric key to look for it. Then I drive it to the gate of my office building. I wave goodbye to the security guard, who gives me as a friendly smile.

    Before I walk out of my office, I turn off all the lights. but it's more natural to say "Before I leave my office ...".

    Then I close the door and I walk straight to the garage. although the second "I" is not required.

    My motorbike can What is a "motorbike can"?

    is one of a hundred motorbikes in the garage,

    so I use its electric key to look for it. How does using the key help you to find it?

    Then I drive ride it to the gate of my office building. You don't drive a motorbike; you ride one.

    I wave goodbye to the security guard,

    who gives me as a friendly smile. "as" is incorrect.
    See above.

    Just say:

    Please correct any errors.

    Now that you're out of the building what do you do then? Do you head straight home or do you stop somewhere for a beer?
