I think once you had the fifth wheel hitch in the back you would be at max payload
Those are unibody, they are not going to tow much.

"Is that a Ducati?"

no, dipshit, it says YAMAHA right on the side in huge block letters.

I get this one at least once per ride.

5,000 pounds, not too bad for a unibody. Still... No air brakes... No truck! :)

Mercedes GL is unibody with a 7500lb towing capacity. Unibody engineering has come a long way.

Don't mean to burst your bubble, but the ridgeline is a unibody sitting on top of a traditional ladder frame. Mine is terrible and hauling bikes..

I get asked "Is it fast?" all the time.

My answer, until earlier today, was always, "Faster than what you're driving."

But the guy filling up next to me this morning was driving a Ferrari F430. So my answer this morning was, "Not as fast as what you're driving."

I gotta say, the Ferrari F430 might just be the most beautiful automobile I've ever seen.

My Audi allroad is a station wagon. Even though it goes offroad more than 99% of the trucks out there.

However, my wife's Lexus GX470 *is* a truck, NOT a SUV. Locking diffs, transfer case with 4 wheel low range, adjustable suspension, ladder frame. The rest of the world calls it a landcruiser, I call it a surprisingly kick butt vehicle.

I thought Yamaha was Japanese for Ducati.

It wasn't a question, and I was stupid.

I had my son out in the yard playing with the neighbor's XR100, and we ran out of gas. I was geared up as I had come in from a ride earlier, and still had my riding pants on when I hopped in the car to go to the gas station. I'm standing there next to my station wagon filling up the gas can, and this guy walks over to me and says "those are the coolest pants I have ever seen!" I looked up with that 'what?' look on my face, looked down at my pants, and said "uh..... we ran out of gas. ..... For the motorcycles." He repeated that he liked my pants and hopped in his nice car, and I just stood there like an idiot.

Some time later, I realized that it would have been far cool for me to have asked if he rode, too.
