  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    I wonder sometimes how they get loaded let alone how they traverse roads.

    Didn't Albert Einstein have a formula that explained how those results are achieved?

    My take on this is that 99% of those pictures were of none U.S. citizens who were probably very hard working people

    just trying to do a job.

    They mostly do appear to be Southeast Asian. The big question is: From where comes the tenacity to keep adding material after they've already achieved herculean results at the outset?

    I've seen the motorcycle the the front wheel in the trunk here in the US.

    I've had 2 instances of overloaded.
    The first was a junker Chevy LUV truck that we loaded too many logs into. They weren't stacked so high but the weight broke the springs. That was early high school.
    The second was later high school where we put 10 people in a Chevette. It broke the rear shock mount.

    No more overloading. Get the right tool for the job.

    That triggers an obscure memory. Kansas Governor Bill Graves also CEO Graves Trucking and then president of the American Trucking Assoc. used the campaign slogan back in 1995, 'Stack 'em high and tight'.

    High and tight was used all across the trucking industry.

    Should've taken a pic of my Roadster this past Saturday. Delivered four R112 JCW Challenge Spokes complete with their Michelin tires to a buyer ~90 miles away. One in the boot and three in the passenger seat. Top up.

    Other than the fact I had no sixth gear or parking brake, very do-able.
