    Ha!



    I thought it was just going to be a test to see if you could pick it up (as at the end) off the ground after you dump it.



    My TW passes, although I would wince a bit at kicking it over on purpose.





    On edit: Is a KLR really that heavy? The uncensored "How to Pick Up A Motorcycle" video is hilarious!

    I just [s]wasted[/s] enjoyed 15 minutes watching this guy's other videos. He is awesome!



    While I haven't kicked my TW over, my wife managed to drop it twice and I lost it once while loading onto my truck. The brake lever didn't make it, and neither did the right rear turn signal.

    I've lifted them a few thousand times

    This just triggered a question for me, can you guys recommed a good set of Bark Busters for a TW that don't look stupid. I was looking at the ones on my WR's and they are either to long or just to big. Enduro Engineering are the one's I have now but figured I'd ask the team for the best recommendation for the TW.



    Thanks

    Ha, my dub would have laughed at that and picked itself up!



    I don't care who makes the bike, you never kick it over on purpose.

    I'm still on the fence about which hand guards I want, but there's good info within these threads here: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...iw=867&bih=453
