Behind the crest. Holding it .
Ah, very cool
I'd say your legs are overdue for a waxing.
Looks pretty sweet to me.
Using the term "sweet" when referencing Tomski? That's just not right :huh
only during a confessional is it right, cause then you are forgiven!

Since I'm not putting up Christmas lights this year.....
Thinking of riding Appalachia Bay tomorrow. Maybe grab a mid-morning breakfast at the Crescent first.
What he said
So, on loading motorcycles. I first watched Noel load his and he would load it in his truck sideways so he could slide the ramp under the bike in between the wheels and also shut the tail gate. This was a very nice way to load I thought. So I adopted this style.
See, tail gate shut, ramp in between the wheels, Cooler and gas can I don't have to worry about sliding out. I have since grown unhappy with this style of loading though as it tends to lean the bike to the right pretty hard core putting most of the weight on the left strap. Have been thinking about adopting a different style of loading but haven't put that into practice yet. Today, loading to go ride, I have the bike in sideways like that, I have the straps on which I thought I had snug enough, I get out of the truck to tighten them down fully and the bike starts to move a bit, no biggy it's going to move the straps aren't tight yet.
Well it moved a lot. As in fell right the eff over as the left hand strap was way loose. This caused the bars to rotate as it fell resulting in this...
I'll be putting it in straight ahead from now on I think. If I had it like that today it would have just donked on the side of the truck bed and been fine. Ah well. Window is now replaced. Calling it a day for today. Want to know how to freak your wife out? Bust your window while loading your dirt bike. Then go get window replaced. Next day, start loading your dirt bike again and watch her go :eek wondering if you're going to break the brand new one.
Bah! I had such a rad set of stickers on the one I just smashed too. Going to have to re sticker up.
Don't feel so bad, Silver. I managed to drop my bike INSIDE my van. Nearly smashed a window and mooshed my dog. I've sticked to my easy-loading trialer ever since.
While I appreciate the responses and know that everyone is balancing holiday time with family, we need to see if these maybe's can become IN's.
I'd like to point out that a nicer day will not exist again in this lifetime.
The temps are mid 50's to 60's and the wind is a nominal 8 mph.
If you're not riding tomorrow your wrong. :eek1
Thanks! Yeah I don't feel too horrible about it, not the first bro to bust a window loading a dirt bike nor the last to do so. Would say "bummer I didn't have it on video" but it was pretty lame, bike falls over, I look at windshield like "wtf just happened" /fin Also my front window has had a looooong crack in it for awhile now, so good reason to go ahead and get that replaced as well.
Just to conclude: In fine omnes soli sumus
I'll be at the Crescent around 9:30am and then out to Appy Bay - unless I head to Stillwater (Joe, sent you a PM).
Semel modo vivis!
I want to invite everyone to the Last Ride of the Year 2012. It may be cold but It was this morning and there were several riders out.
to avoid the same thing i've been thinking about cutting a board to fit in the bed near the cab, then attach those cheap wheel chocks from cycle gear to it.
I don't usually do this but this is something some of us have experienced first hand, many more second hand. Probably some of you have heard it already.
They cut my britches off
