Re: Loading a motorcycle onto a Sailboat..

I hated the bags om my Ducati for that very reason, they stick out too far. I was glad to see that his employer made lemonade by using it for a publicity video.

Loading a motorcycle onto a Sailboat..

I opened this thread because I've often thought of trying to put my KTM 125 on board. Obviously that's not the way to do it. Low speed crashes are the worst, because they generally only bruise your ego.

A sailboat with twin outboards no less. With all the incomprehensible yelling going on, do you think anyone was saying "this is a bad idea"?
