Never asume that whether there has been no sand on the road 30minutes ago there's no sand on the same bow a bit later...

Easy...

you can get out of the Hole you made like this..


Just use the cilinder head as a pivot point, it works every time as long as is dry..

I think I just got the rude awakening too.

I was thinking of putting knobbies and off road springs on my 82 Goldwing. And pumping up the air in the suspension. Hoping it would get me by, as its got bags and racks already. But I dont really want to get in these situations. I,m going to have to reevaluate the situation after watching on any sunday again. Except the belt sander situation. I have a big cast iron Deli meat slicer I wanted to sell but couldnt figure how to transport it. Thanks for the idea.

Don't think that I've EVER seen a Rokon stuck before. That takes talent.

Not just that, i was also carring my self stand 5 feet tall drill press, about 160 pounds..

all taking apart, but for sure heavy as hell


Everything got home (a little shop i'm ussing for a few months) but i confess was a extremlly scary ride

well now all the tools are home and working just fine..



After all If this was not a bad idea, i will not post on this tread.

the total amount of load was about 450 pounds, equal pretty much to a pair of full dress FaT ricky's specially when it came the time to used the center stand...

You can some of my Bicycle Swap meets and crazy loads on my smugmug acount.


Enjoy and don't laugh to hard.

Not sure which is worse...

Not knowing if it is a bad idea and doing it,



Or knowing it's a bad idea and doing it anyway.





Neither was MY idea.

bikes and trailers

Trying to get my bike into a Uhaul for my longhaul from GA to AK. It's a shame that I couldn't ride... That's a Office Depot special 6 foot table and a board best used for making book shelves, and a couple of cinder blocks underneath for support. Broke the table and the board, but mangaged to get the bike in. Sure was nice to have the wife there for support... Oh, yeah and that's my GS t-shirt (If you're gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough)
