Well, did you tow the boat with it? What happened? I know I'm not the only one who wants to know!

I agree MJS. When I first started riding (after taking an MSF course) I'd hear the "lay it down" story often. The only people who claimed to have used it, or known someone who had, were Harley guys, so I figured it was easier to slide their bike than try to dodge the obstacle, or ride the slide out. All I can say is during the many near misses I've had in my years of riding (thank you MSF), and the few I didn't miss, I've never once considered "choosing" to lay my bike down.

The 17 foot, 2000 lb boat, motor and trailer is spending the winter securely positioned kitty korner in my garage with my klr beside it. Bottomline: you can get such a rig moving with a klr on a fairly flat surface but the 12 deg incline ramp into my garage proved too much. I found a way to back it in with 4 wheel power despite the 90 deg turn off a hemmed in alley.



Obviously, I hope, towing such a rig at any speed above a slow walk is ill advised. In case its not obvious, the momentum of the boat will likely cause your demise when you propose to stop.

Hmmmn. KPaul must've "ended this thread" because we wouldn't answer his questions.

You guys just don't realize it but laying a bike down can be a VERY good thing. I highly recomend it!



The main reason to lay a bike down is to work on it. It can make several things easier.



I've layed my Honda RS125 down a couple times when putting the gear box back together, makes it much easier.
