    Lift Straps

    I no longer can ride in places where my bike might end up stuck in deep mud, sand, big rocks, under water, quick sand, unconscious fat chicks, between 2 logs or other places where it might need of a major lift, pull, drag or tug. Maybe lifting on/off bumper racks.

    You guys probably know all about these but they caught my eye and I thought some might be interested.
    I imagine they could be had or made pretty cheap.

    Looks like they might be handy on both ends of the bike.

    No need to thank me, just send cents-off coupons for Walmart...

    I put those on my 2002 KX250 converted to enduro racing. They are really great! Now when I need help horsing it back up on the trail I just launched off of, there's something for the other guys to grab. Ha!

    Jeez...after riding dirt bikes for over 45 years you think I would have thought of this already? Especially since I actually sell a handle that would be perfect for this.....note to self...build pull handle prototype tomorrow morning. lol

    I like mud, sand, and rocks, however if I find myself encroaching on a herd of unconscious fat chicks, I turn around as not to startle them, for fear of stampede. Then the pull straps become moot. Call a chopper.

    Find some old fire hose. You can make lift and tow straps from it.

    I have ridden with overweight women on the back of my bikes for years. I have something soft to land on when I crash. I am not a socialist. Nothing is free. My bike works for its gas.
