Looks like there's a styrofoam brace across the top of the tail section in one of the pics, so I'm guessing that there were a few of those before the uncrating began. I can't see them relying on the front wheel supports for shipping all the way from Japan. What makes me nervous about shipping these bikes isn't the trip across the Pacific, but the trip from the docks to the warehouse behind some lunatic container driver, and even worse is the trip on the back of a 5-ton flatdeck to the dealer. I've seen these psychos drive and I doubt whether they slow down for corners or speed bumps. I wish they'd let us pick up our own bikes from the distributor and stick around for the PDI.xenz said:How did they get the bike up straight ? It's not using kick stand, not leaning on the side nothing supporting the bike except the wheel holder and something underneath the bottom of the bike where the oil drain is, or am I missing something ?
I'm only guessing, but I'll bet that one was the last one left when unpacking. Probaby trussed up tighter than a Japanese schoolgirl when it left Nippon.:eekxenz said:but still, it amazed me how it can be hold still with that one big styrofoam.
