HF lift-potentially fatal flaw
On January 12 I put my xct on the lift, strapped her in, took the bags etc off, raised the lift and inserted the safety bar. The next day I had a hip replaced.
I wanted the bike up so I could tinker while I recovered from the surgery. Well, today was the first tinker day. I open the garage and she is still strapped in and upright, but the lift is down. The safety bar is bent like a pretzel. Pretty poor place to cut corners.
Beware. If you leave it up, even with the bar, keep kids and pets far away.
