    I always like how people always come into the GSA forums to suggest lighter bikes or no luggage. It's great.

    I was cruising down some dirt roads, and then my road turned into a rocky ravine. Luggage was the only thing that allowed me to pick it up as many times as I did to to try to get out of there. Eventually I blew out my muscles and had to leave it there. I brought the 4x4 back the next day and winched it upright and trailered home back to El Paso. Something like this probably would have saved me a lot of heartache. Thought I think a rope and a pulley or two would've also worked.

    Anyone know if the motorcycle light version is still available from Snow Buddy?

    Fricken dropped mine three times today. The pig is way harder to lift than a Wing. A last resort might be one of these.

    It looks like you can buy the pieces individually to make a kit.

    After wiping out in the blinding silt dust en route to Tea Kettle Junction and not wanting to get hit by the guys behind me, I grabbed the bar and picked up the bike.
