Oh, and that Yamaha scooter is only $50???? That ad was a lot of work for so little money
Not if it amuses you. Or if you're hoping that it will go viral and spread it far and wide across the Internet as self propagating example of your ad layout skill.

yup.


recovery begins


upsie daisey


since it was lifted almost straight up instead of dragging it up the hill, there wasn't further damage.


Good work

i work with this guy. several coworkers trailered their harleys down there (obviously for the best) in early may for a week of drinking and debauchery.

he caught a minor ration of shit when he got back to michigan... and his wife (pictured) was also displeased.

How much for the recovery?
From the looks of it, frightening expensive. Or what?

Unless its a DIY job, it's going to be expensive. Only one wrecker services that area, and if they go out, THP is probably in front of them.

That is the way it is on the NC side. Call a wrecker and NCHP is dispatched.
