    That thing is f-ing sick. I am debating buying a buddy of mines bike. He bought a project and needs to sell his 08 nightster to fund the project. It's sick, but I think the lady kind of kabashed it. With us getting married in 4 months it's probably not a good investment anyways. I will have one though.

    If I could afford a HD I would have one. I can afford my Taco and my crotch rocket. If I got a Harley the truck and the other bike would have to go! Insurance on the Harley alone would cost more than my truck and street bike combined!
    One of these days I will get one. I like the Night Trains and the Fat Bobs. I think the Train looks more bad-ass, but I'd probably end up with the Fat Bob because I find it more fun to ride.

    Oh for sure.. Just bustin ya.. ;)

    Trailer tow all the way. I see them in the back of trucks all the time and it just gives me the heebie jeebies. I've towed a couple of seemingly minor truck accidents with a bike in the back and having the bike on it's side in the bed or on the ground makes you wonder. i did have a more serious one i picked up and it was on a trailer. Truck was stove in pretty bad in the front. Bent the hitch and drop down, bent the trailer arm. Bike looked fine.

    First of all thanks for the compliments on my fatboy and truck. next...Back at ya!
    About how to haul your Harleys in the bed :

    # 1) VERY CAREFULLY
    #2) DON'T TRY IT UNLESS YOU HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE
    A) BECAUSE THEIR HEAVY
    B) BECAUSE IF YOU PUT TOO MUCH WEIGHT ON THE TAILGATE YOU COULD DAMAGE IT. I KNOW BECAUSE I AM ON MY THIRD TAILGATE NOW, THANKS TO MY ROAD KING AND BRAKING TO HARD PUTS EXTRA STRESS IF YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT SPOT WHEN JERKING YOUR BIKE WITH THE BRAKE WHILE ON THE TAILGATE.:mad:

    SINCE THEN I HAVE BOUGHT A FLATBED TRAILER ( WHICH ALSO DOUBLED AS A TOY HAULER, A.T.V.'S) SOLD THAT AND GOT A SELF CONTAINED TOY HAULER.:DTRANSPORTING BIKES AND CAMPING.:bananadead:

    BUT IF YOU INSIST ON TRYING TO LOAD & UNLOAD YOUR BIKE, MAY I SUGGEST A LOADING RAMP THAT YOU CAN BACK UP TO AND RIDE ON IN ON A FLAT APPROACH.:rolleyes:

    WHATEVER YOU DECIDE, GOODLUCK.
    P.S. I ALSO HAD A RAMP BRAKE ON ME WHEN I WAS ALMOST DOWN. THE BIKE LEANED OVER IN SLOW MOTION AS I TRIED LIKE ---- TO CONTROL THE DROP. ENDED UP ON ITS SIDE WITH ZERO DAMAGE! ONLY MY PRIDE WAS DAMAGED!:eek:

    IN RESPONSE TO THE BACK OF MY TRUCK...IT'S A QUAD HAULER. THATS WHERE I CAME UP WITH MY USER NAME...YAMALARISHAULER. SHE RIDES A YAMAHA 350 WOLVERINE AND I RIDE A POLARIS I.R.S. 5OO OUTLAW. :quickdraw:THEY ARE ONLY PRODUCED FOR FULL SIZE TRUCKS, BUT WITH SOME CUTTING, WELDING AND GRINDING IT NOW IS MADE TO FIT BOTH SIZES OF TRUCKS!
