    Attached is half a cord of wood plied high. First time try to haul that much wood. Next time I will be sure to stack the wood neatly instead of just throwing the wood in. Towards the end of me loading I was worried I could get it all to fit. Don't think any fell out on the 13 miles home. Live and learn.

    Yikes! Cover your load. A load like that could kill a motorcyclist if something fell out.

    Handled well did not have tons of power but then again it is only a 4 banger so it never did have that much power. The speed limit on the road I needed to use was 50 mph but I'm sure I was around 40 the whole way.

    You are right about covering the load and I should have. I don't even have a tarp or tie-downs in this new truck yet but they are on the list of things to get. If I had stacked the logs inside the bed it wouldn't have looked that bad.

    I hear ya about stuff falling off trucks and motorcycles. This is me and my '04 FLHTCI. It has 38K miles with plenty of smiles.

    Amazing truck we have.

    It's proven the world over with it hauling a stack of Punjab's 25 people deep and camels and other shit in it and other abuses of the third world.

    I'm confident here in America it can handle this light load. It's cake over here.

    Nice beast. I'd like to get a Road King some day. Here's an action shot of me on my 1998 Concours (82K miles)

    I've had a few heartbeat moments on it. One time I was passing a truck pulling a trailer. It was bouncing around quite a bit. I remember thinking I hope that thing doesn't pop off as I was passing, when it suddenly did. Luckily he had safety chains on it. I powered on by just as it got really squirrelly.
