My concerns are, I will be doing it alone, I will be doing it on a big heavy bike (my AT) and my final concern is my age (57). I have been riding a motorcycle now for 47 years and consider myself above average but have not been on a dirt bike for a very long time now and I am new to this adventurer thing. A big concern is getting into some ruff stuff dropping the AT and not being able to pick it up.
Hi Fster, as suggested try to pick it up at home first, 250kg+ its almost impossible unless your name is Arnold.. I know i've tried out on the trail myself, being 59 and 85kg there was no way i was picking it up by myself, so I did some researsh, maybe your interested maybe you not? Check this out, I'll be getting one for my long solo trips. Dustriders Hoist.
Hope this helps.
