    The pic from Paris made me laugh. I've seen bikes that have obviously been in the same places for months if not years. Never saw any attempt to tow them.

    I do agree the this is not the best rigging but is the safest way to load motorcycle/scooter on the flat bed.
    With locked bars and possible lock on the rotor or wheel I would grab the bars and grab handles in the back to spread the load.This guy need more training but some guys just don't care specially with PPI.
    I would worry more about the car he got on the stinger with out primary straps and secondary safety chains.

    But,what do I know.

    Just off of the road in a curve; not the best idea I've had but it made for a few good photos. The BRP in Western NC.

    Ha! Don't do that in BC! You can't be within 10 feet of them, fines, AND points on your licence! Technically, if its a car parked there, and there is an emergency, they can smash the windows to put the firehose through!

    Years ago I saw a NYC Traffic tow truck pick up a bike, dangle it from the cable, and started driving. Every time he started or stopped, the bike smashed into the back of the truck. This was pre flatbeds. God knows if the owner was ever reimbursed for the damage.

    I must confess guys. Looks are deceiving, the temperature was in the high 40's when I took this photo. Living in the Western NC mountains we have extreme swings in temperature. The ice on the rock cliffs were from a arctic cold front that moved through the mountains two day before. It was in the teens for several days but warmed back up fast. Made for a good pic and conversation.
