How I load my KLR in my truck

I've seen a bunch of videos where the bike ends up on the ground so I thought I'd video my way:

That's a nice set-up, Toney. I guess we won't be seeing your loading on YT in the 'Fail' or 'Humor' category.

I still like this guy's method, though.

I wouldn't even try that on a KLR. Maybe on a Goldwing but not a KLR.
