Take an E75 into a Tier 8 battle (it is a Tier 7 tank with a Tier 6 gun) and you get well acquainted with those sounds

You mean E25... the 75 is the T9 Heavy.

I think I'm finally learning how to use the T34... Hide & snipe.

Great work!

Also, try and play hull down, exposing only the front of your turret to the enemy. Your turret is strong. Hop into TS when you want. A lot of us have that tank and can help you out a bit.

That looks like it's going to work out fine.

Until you hit one good bump at speed.


The leverage that's going to put on your rear sub-frame and luggage plate seems incredible to me. Maybe KTM's are built of tougher stuff, but... wow.

But we all know that Ed neither goes fast nor ever would hit any bumps.

You'd be amazed how light the entire thing is Smithy - the bike is all carbon fiber and weighs 28lbs with the dropper post ready to ride. The 8020 aluminum structure is the 15LS series -super light (but strong). I put 200 lbs on the end of the bar and all it did was squat the suspension (no flex at all).

The bike is designed for a passenger and full up touring luggage (which would be 300+ lbs behind the rider?). I suppose I could get out the calculator and figure out the moment of inertia.. but that is too much like work

I am thinking about triangulating the rear to the side racks.. we will see

That said, I will keep close tabs on everything.

p.s. what Ian said

Clearly you've thought it through - but will the bicycle withstand it? Will the bolts?

I'd have mounted it sideways, so all the weight was above the plate, and taken off both wheels. I've seen that done before to good effect, and a frame alone shouldn't wipe out the car next to you.

Like I said, good luck.

At the very least, I think I'd slide the frame the bike is on forward so it overhangs the rear seat a bit and center up the load on your trunk plate......

I knew that position was iffy, but you only live once....you notice I pulled back and looked to the flank at the first near miss. Funny thing is, I thought I loaded Premium shells for the third clip at the IS-6, until I looked at the vid.

As far as the SP fire goes, yeah that was nice. Made up for the lack of a 5th shot....

We are going to Crested Butte on the 950s for a multi day camping/mtn bike riding trip.
I am keeping the seat behind me clear for the camping gear.

I didn't stay at a holiday inn last night.. but I do have an engineering degree.
If it was of concern I'd do the math. As I mentioned.. I may triangulate a bit.

I appreciate the input gents

due to the price of replacing the bike, will your insurance cover it in the case of an accident or damage of some type while attached?
