Dirt, here I come!

Operation Load and Unload Bike Alone was a huge success!

It took me a few tries to get the Serow into the pickup, but once I started from a bit further back, I had no problems at all. Zoom up into the truck!

Getting it down was a little creepier, but I got it on the first big try! *takes a bow* I was hesitant at first and then decided, “aw, screw it” and just went for it. 😉

Oh, for what it’s worth, we have two ramps (well, I think they’re technically Cat’s *grin* Hey, Cat, mind if I keep borrowing your ramps?), each about a bike-width wide. The bike went up/down one while I walked on the other.

This makes me very happy, as now I know that I can take the truck/Serow combo on day/weekend trips alone.

Tomorrow I go to Cycle Gear for motocross boots and cheap textile pants.

  1. Congrats! I’ve watched several Triumph service guys load my bike into a pickup in the last month and I always hold my breath as the bike goes up the ramp. Hope you get out for some dirt riding soon.

    Ok, certain words used together in a sentance just make me unbelievably sad. One of those combinations involves “triumph service” and “load my bike.” 🙁
    Sorry to hear about a fellow trumpet being muted…
