According to eBay, ALL bike scratches, dents, and missing pieces are a direct result of improper loading.

Push the bike maybe?

Why do people try to ride their bikes onto a truck or trailer? That's just dumb. But then I just stated the obvious, didn't I?

Riding it isn't a problem. Trying to put your foot down where there would otherwise be pavement and now it's nothing but air... that's the problem.

He takes his hand off the throttle to support himself and the bike on the side of the truck... apparently he forgot how gravity seems to work which caused the bike to stop short... moron.

Well, I wasn't thinking of riding the bike INTO the trailer at all, but since you've come up with a cool idea, then I'd be riding a wheelie INTO the truck, at speed!

Royalty checks can be sent to 'crashomon' at CLSB.... and I'll give ChiefBD a portion of the proceeds.



* of course an even smaller portion would go to the Hoff!

Dumb...

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
