If you will note...there are no scooters in that video. Crotch rockets, Harleys and 4 Wheelers. I will let you all draw your own conclusions.

No lie! One look at every ramp revealed a disaster in the works. I'm still laughing.

Don't be so quick. I know of at least 4 scooter disasters right here on MV. What amazes me most is that they were revealed publicly. The driveway disasters really amaze me. Especially when there are curbs and obvious spots in the backgrounds where the trucks could have been repositioned to reduce the angle of dangle.

I don't understand the point of filming someone loading a bike on a truck in the first place, but in several of these situations, it would have been nice to help try to load it.

Go figure. How about those that post their crimes on social media? Mind numbing.

The take away lesson is if you are getting ready to load up, if there is someone taking a video, make him put it down and get over and help make the load up.
Every time, and i mean EVERY time I have loaded up a trailer, truck, or bumper carrier I have done it without the motor on and only one other person helping. Most of the time the other person helping was my wife, so it ain't a big deal. (Many times it was her bike so she was very willing.)
