Anyone wanna make a buck the easy way?

Ahem ... seriously. I'm thinking of buying one of those bike lift tables from Harbor Freight, but have no way of getting it home. It's around 8' long and the damn thing weight about 300lbs. Not gonna fit in the SLK. So ... if someone has a decent back plus a pickup truck, and wants to see their wallet $30 heavier for 30 minutes of work, let me know. (I might even throw in a beer or two!).

I'm thinking sometime next week, after work. Assuming they have it in stock. HF is on Broad near Parham, and I'm Northside at the corner of Seminary and Bellvue.

PS: Unless anyone has a better suggestion for a lift table that's inexpensive and doesn't require dedicated compressed air. My back isn't going to take anymore of this on-the-ground crap. :-(

wise choice there, those lifts are the cat's meow, and are worth the price, glad you didn't get persuaded into a Big $$$$ one, the HF unit fits the bill for 99% of the world....

Forest Hill Training Center today...that was fun!
I wish I could have stayed a bit longer but had to switch to a nice street ride with the GF .
I think I should NOT have had the Dickies two meat platter before riding

Two Meat platter with sliced brisket & pulled pork with decent coleslaw and tasty beans...


Sic Semper had a MONSTER baked potato


The RTE crew for today was higworld, pplassm, Sic Semper, ddlewis & myself....higworld had to boggie back to work and
save the world one internet transaction at a time due to black Friday...missing that XR Rick?


It was a beautiful day and most were over dressed by noon as temps rose we ran into a few others running around
and even got to explore some of the 'other side' trails thanks to someone in the know...


Don't tell your friends....this message will self destruct in 30 seconds I might be in for Sunday....TBD

Sorry we didn't stop in to say hi Jimmy...although we did pick up a KLR so you were there in spirit...

I did not eat the whole monster backed potato, but what I did have was very tasty.

It was much warmer than I thought it would be, just beautiful

Had a great time. Met a new guy named George who had never heard of ADVrider. Hopefully he will join up. He was on the KLR and he can hustle that beast through the woods!!!

Good seeing you all!!
