Hmmmm. Big Pig foreskin. Now there's a visual.

I expect you'll be there to witness it. From time to time.

Can tell you what I felt like picking up that 900 lb led sled I used to ride. Felt like a couple of Hydrocodone and a glass of red.

I've got a utility trailer set up for hauling bikes if you have something to pull it with. If you rent a pickup with a receiver type hitch, I also have a easy to use hitch hauler. MotoJack Rack. Hydraulic platform that lifts the bike from the frame. Just let me know.
