top 10 bike loading fails

Recommended Posts

Bummer, when you drop a street bike like that, there is major damage. metal tanks, fiberglass fairings, custom paint jobs, I could feel their pain.

Fortunately, I learned the lesson about low-clearance on streetbikes while pushing my bike, instead of riding it. After loading dirtbikes 9183794873214 times, who would think that almost every streetbike would high-center on a normal-sized ramp and a normal-sized truck.

When I was younger I decided that I could load my trx300 "by myself"... Well turns out that ramps don't stay on the truck too well if you give it enough gas.

Did you know a new rear window and body work on a pickup costs about $1200?

Bonus laugh on the fact they have their friends just watching instead of helping!

At least some of them actually got the bikes in the truck...that's the goal right??

Favorite was the chopper-like purple bike, dude looked like he had no idea what was going on....

FULL RAMP=no excuses!! Damn people....

Funny. That is bound to happen to me one day. But mine is an old dirt bike and I wreck it 10 times every time I ride. Dropping it out of a truck probably won't be so bad. At least it won't be on camera.

I was unloading a Husky 125 and completely missed the step......The bike just tipped over off the tailgate and the clutch lever stabbed me in the leg. I still have the scar. And to pour salt in the wound, it was at my local shop with a few guys standing around. NO ONE help, they just laughed......

 

At least it wasn't my 500 or something stupid heavy.....

This whole "Loading the Bike into the back of a Truck by Yourself" practice is dangerous game -- especially at the end of the day when you (I) am cramping and tired.

I have a very narrow ramp and a milk crate that I use to load a 450 with. When the ground is unstable or the tires are wet, I almost always experience that tipping moment between having my feet on the ground and having them firmly on the gate of the truck. So much easier with some help.
