Yesterday was great. I wasn't the first at the trailhead, but I was the first on the trail! The new #Shinko Cheater rear tire performed as great as everything I'd heard about it. So much grip! The van and the bike rack worked great together. I had installed some "load leveling" rear shocks to help compensate for the extra weight hanging off the back... And I have to say, it feels more planted and stable traveling through the Colorado mountain passes, with the bike mounted, than it did before with no load. I was fully prepared to deal with crappy handling, so that fact that I don't, is just another gold star for this setup.
Living in and around the very "ALPHA" military culture, I've heard multiple times that a minivan is not a proper "manly" vehicle... Ok... 🤔
Please, tell me again how your over priced, soda-can aluminum, gas guzzling, lifted pavement princess is superior. 🤷♂️😂 Lol, before the rebuttals start, just let me say this, I'm not hatin' on trucks or their owners. We own one and they do have their place in this world, but I feel like the #motominivan setup is just a better fit for me. I'm completely fine with not being "manly." 😎😆🤘
