Yeah, but I'd have to ride a white one...and that ain't happening.

That's not entirely true. The one that's in that video that's been posted a thousand times over the last few years wasn't white, was it?


Nope: Found it.

I've seen the video as well. My comment was in regards to WKD's link. Think Honda would honor warranty work for one of those?

we have seen this thing a bunch of times on this site. Everytime I look at it I wonder how the hell you tow anything down a hill of any size? What happens on a downhill, do you crawl along like riding on glass? Not me sorry.

John, I have heard of Bucyrus........why am I craving Bratwurst after reading your post?

Semi trucks do it all the time.

Speaking of Bucyrus...is the downtown building still there with the mural painted on the side? Heck, who hasn't heard of Bucyrus, Ohio? (By the way, when is the Bratwurst Festival anyway?)

Yes, the downtown building has an amazing mural on it painted by Eric Grohe. The more you stand and look at it, the more details you find that you previously missed. The Bratwurst Festival - the visitors seem to enjoy it- most locals don't. They call it the " Eatingest Festival in Ohio". Bucyrus is like most small towns with industries leaving and few new businesses coming in. Hate to see it happening to "home". If you open the website below it will open to one of the Grohe murals in town called "Liberty Remembers".
Makes sense the dolly would have brakes :oops: , sure wouldn't try it otherwise! My towing experience is fairly limited, but I have had the sphincter puckering experience of a tight turn with a heavier vehicle trying to shove the towing vehicle - wonder what it would be like with a rig like that?
The 2007 Bratwurst Festival officially kicks off at noon on August 16th, and closes when the last beer garden kicks people out on the 18th.

Yes, but don't they handle this problem with a tranny designed to shoulder the weight etc........
