Last year I sold my rusty but trusty 99 Dodge 2500 Truck and bought a 96 GMC Savana passenger van. After a year of owning this van, I only have one regret. That regret is I wish it were a 3/4 ton, but I can get over that.
I plan to do some trackdays in 2014 and I needed a hauler. I needed something that was easier to load my bike into, than trying to load it into my truck (which was not low to the ground). So I opted for a van because getting an enclosed trailer to pull behind my truck was going to cost way to much in fuel. My old truck used to get 13mpg on a good day and this van gets 17mpg.
I plan on installing a Pit Bull trailer restraint system for my bike and I will more than likely install a second restraint system for another bike, so someone else can tag along if they like.
More than likely I will do some mods to help with my track day adventures, before I do the unnecessary exhaust and wheel mod.
