I was at AZ Bike Week last week and I saw a motorcycle tow company that had a unique tow truck with a hydraulic lift. They rolled the bike onto a platform that dropped down behind the pickup truck and then lifted the motorcycle up into the back of the truck's bed. The pictures don't show it but the carriage/platform the motorcycle is in fits neatly into truck's bed when completely retracted.  Took a few pictures and thought I would share them here. Pretty cool rig IMO!

Hope I don't ever need something like that but if I was ever broke down that would be a safe way to transport a motorcycle.

  When I bought my first bike, (New, 2009, Softail Custom, leftover stock, bought Dec 2010) the dealership had lots of trouble ordering & installing my requested upgrades/changes.  This caused delay after delay.  The bike was finally ready while I was at work.  The dealership delivered my bike in a truck similar to this to my work, (at night, minutes before closing time and a torrential downpour).

  There was much rejoicing!

Cheers,

  No, they didn't.  I don't remember them throwing in anything.

  Because I sorta had a plan, and, because of all the delays, I had time to pick up an inexpensive water proof riding jacket.  I wish I had thought about rain gloves, pants, and waterproof boots!

Cheers,
Ferrous
