    How do people get the bikes on the rear mounted bike racks ? Just tried for the first time today and being a "strapping"... 5' 8" I couldn't reach the central support bars and had to use a small step ladder (2 steps)

    I can't see any other way unless I'm missing something, thought about trying to grow another 6" but that seems unlikely:Rofl1:

    buy a bag of compost

    I would suggest you buy a bag of compost.. and you may grow a bit.... but I suspect the step ladder is the way.

    hi funsters, yep, a set of steps comes in very handy for reaching the cycle carrier and the front stowage area above the cab. strap them onto the carrier when on the move .
    i always send my wife up the steps. its safer that way.......pete.:RollEyes:

    You sir, have no stamina.

    You should have given it at LEAST over night ( and I have it on good authority if you drink several pints of the brown nectar and relieve your self IN the compost bag, success is a foregone conclusion..

    Take a demerit mark for lack of perseverance, stand in the corner and perform self flagellation with your now partly used bag of manure
