Wanna load your quad?

Saw this idiot at a stop light the other day.

I just want to see how this guy loads and unloads these.

If you actually look at the picture there are 2 quads. He obviously couldn't load them end to end. He made it work

How I used to pull our raptors and my buddy's banshee...we got a nice size trailer now, so we can throw 3 of them on it and another in the bed.

No kidding, the 1000-1500 must have snapped my frame. Zak, that idea popped into my head and I remember either you or someone posting that.
