    You bet. If it weren't for them, it scares me to think how sober I might otherwise be most of the time.....:eek1

    I installed a Moose lift strap on the rear end of my bike over the winter... There is a serious lack of good handholds on the XRL and I seem to make a fairly regular habit of getting into spots where I have to pull and tug the old girl back up onto the trail:evil I put the strap to good use on my last ride when I had to horse the F&^%$er around to get through the snow. I got to looking at the strap today and it didn't fare so well:cry. The buckles were both straight when I installed the strap.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    You can see the one buckle is clearly bent to shit!:huh The hole in the center is also no longer round. I guess they didn't design the strap for a 300+ pound bike:lol3

    So... I got to thinking. I built one of my own!

    Not sure yet that it is exactly what I want, but it's a first prototype.

    I know... the bike's filthy and the garage is a rat's nest... :lol3

    You know, a good handle might come in handy next to the front brake and clutch levers. Would be nice to have something closeby, essentially parallel, to pull on when wrestling the bike around 'cause, as we've discovered, the levers aren't really made for lifting the bike.

    Oh, wait... :hmmmmm

    Cool strap idea. I wonder why Honda didn't think of that. Oh, wait... :hmmmmm

    I keep questioning myself this morning! :dunno
