    How to strap down bike in pickup?

    This any use? https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D2Q2xzhjCa60&ved=2ahUKEwiUmJ2lpfDdAhUqK8AKHZ46CSsQwqsBMAN6BAgIEBQ&usg=AOvVaw1yUu_RbrToAgDhLmM2dHYg
  2. Not so, I enjoy this site for the knowledge and shared experience that fellow riders have of their VFRs but what I am reading here makes zero sense whatsoever. Despite references to valid and detailed medical research that indicate that the level of weight loss to your bike is not something that a human is capable of determining, you continue to assert that it is true. It almost feels like you are covering you ears with your hands and going "la, la, la". IMHO, this kind of behaviour stopped when I was an infant. If I was to post that I had removed a couple of the plastic fasteners from the fairing on my bike and suggested that the bike had been transformed as a result into a flick-able sports bike equivalent, would it be down to everyone else to disprove this or would it be down to me to lay down some SOLID evidence, much more than "I feel it" that the shedding of a few grammes makes all the difference. If I then went on to state that if you tried it and didn't feel it, like the evidence of how our bodies work would suggest, then I could simply dismiss you as not being "in touch with your bike" and because I feel it, it is true. Opinions are one thing, but as I have read on many an occasion when a top flight racer comes into the pits complaining that the front end (or some such part) is washing out and can the mechanics sort the setup. They then simply go through the motions without actually changing anything and send the rider back out. His response, "It is so much more planted, I have full confidence in it now". The lesson, the mind is our worst enemy, if you are looking for a particular response, it is more than happy to deliver that back to you. If this topic was taking the path of, "I know it makes no sense and defies all logic and laws of physics, but why do I feel that it makes a difference" then this topic would have a completely different flavour. My suspicion is that the answer to that question is that having overpaid, compared to a standard battery, for a expensive lithium battery then it suggests that you can't acknowledge that you have made a mistake and will defend that position ad infinitum.
  3. Not just you, I was looking for it the other day and wondered if it was in the process of being updated/re-uploaded.
