I especially like the part where it says "Not for use when vehicle is in motion. Can get slippery when wet"...



I'll bet Pluric gets a couple of these for his UTV!!!

I do have 2' reciever mounted on the front and rear so I could have a His&Her set up!

I really like the guy in the customer comments that showed the photo and ahhhh, forgot to flush?

Of course, notice where he is from.

That must be a monster truck to accommodate a two foot receiver hitch. Somehow, I sense everything pluric does is in a grand scale. Go big or go home, right?

Yep, everything is bigger in Texas, or so they say. But isn't Pluric from somewhere like SLC? hmmmm

Is Pluric jealous of the Texas contingent, after all they can ride pretty much year round.

Only problem is that you get so damn much snow that's usually right on your own driveway...

I know I'm a few days late to reply here......

But if your Tenere absolutely needs a lift after you bust her up, might as well do it in style

Don't feel alone. This is how I spent my morning.





Got it stuck Monday night, Memorial Day (THANK YOU to all VETS by the way ). Sat overnight in a mud slime hole, but most of the bike was out of the water. Pulled it out today with the help of one of the two guys shown after walking about two miles to the bike.

We stood the bike up in the mud pit and it started right up! I let out on the clutch and the it was the chug-chug-die of a non-ECU flashed bike. She never would start again on the two miles down (thank goodness) to the flatbed.

Have the battery charger on her now and will see what happens in the morning.

If the Dark Side tries to use these photos for evil, please remind them that I'm a new rider with 277 miles on the odo and love my muddy trails. Not many miles for three weeks or so of ownership, but I love doing WV trails in 1st and 2nd gears.
