We have a winner!

of the coveted "trailer? i don need no stinkin trailer" award.

i posted this in the klr pic thread...but then i felt kinda bad for all you poor FF's who lack the discerning taste to own a KLR...why should you..just because of your dubious taste in motorcycles be denied this moment of sheer inspiration...

i saw this in islamorada yesterday.....









few things i see in the Florida keys surprise me...but this stopped me in my tracks.
so many questions..... how did he get it up there? how will he get it off? is it his girlfriends car? did it rain klr 250's last night? we may never know...i was working and couldn't wait around for the owner to show up...and it was gone this morning....gone but not forgotten.....

i like these little dots..........

Maybe he saw this and decided to be proactive.

HOW??????????

I can make a few guesses how he got it up there, but, no idea how he's going to get it down when he gets where he's going!
Looks like the straps are tied down in the car.

I'm in socal - you see some very creatively packed trucks heading to the border, but I've never seen a motorcycle on a compact car!

Is it too soon to start the 'Cheap KLR Transport' jokes?

Strange, I have a beat to shit ford focus that i've been trying to figure out how to haul bikes with. I'm leaning more toward the sawzall method rather than the yoga mat.

Ah, you could do that with any rental car.

Judging buy the sunroof I doubt that's really a rental.

Can you put the bike inside?

This is from last year when I helped a friend bring his new project bike home in his Prius.

My guess is that it's a company car. As we all know company cars can hold more gear , go further between servicing and two wheel drive company cars can go where a four wheel drive goes
