Depends on what needs fixing .. If have a simple Flat for example .. If have these Classic Spoke Wheels with Tubes that some just have to have .. Much rather have a simple flat on my Truck .. Will be on my way in 20 mins .. Just FYI Have not run Tubes on a Bike since my 04 Heritage ..How come when something needs fixing on your bike, working on it is fun, But when something needs to be fixed on your car, it just sucks?
It's not as big a deal as it would seem to pull a rolling heavy load. My old Suzuki King Quad, with the super low range transmission can pull many, many times its own weight. Only limitation is traction. In the case of the Toyota, any comparably optioned full size truck will do the same. But it was a cool marketing tool nonetheless.
Yeah I love marketing, especially some of the old classic stuff.
The Tundra just pulled the shuttle across a flat bridge for a short distance and then immediately the frame/ chassis completely disintegrated and the TOYoda had to be towed to the scrap yard.
I have a 78 Chev 3/4 ton North of Virginia. I have an 8000 pound sail boat on a triple axle goose neck trailer. I will keep the truck to move the boat when it is sold. Then sell the truck, probably for what I paid for it in the early 80s.Of course 13 year old vehicle's rot. Anyone knows this that lives north of Virginia..... :biggrin:
Depends on the car. If it's your everyday commuter CamryE, it sucks. If it's your weekend musclecar toy, it's fun.
Exactly, depends what you are working on.
And Artful I have an 01 (I make that out to be 15 years old) Nissan truck north of Virginia with no rust problems.
The bike I change the oil on. There's no need to jack it up or crawl under it. Which is why I take the car elsewhere for a oil change.Depends on exactly what's wrong in either case. Changing oil is the same. In fact I have less on the floor after a car than I do with a bike. So the bike is more trouble. It all depends.
Right on.You're driving the wrong car!
