    I'm bringing mine, and returning with two.

    Actually, ... just thinking about it, ... I think you've just come up with a good reason about how it will happen. Your yak was parked next to my yak during the night ... my yak is stuck with custody.

    Put my Honda 5HP on and could probably circumnavigate the globe on a tank.

    I'm just not sure how promiscuous mine is....
    I need to find a simple way of getting mine down as I have no tow bar at present to trailer it and my Prado roof rack is too short to support the Yak (5M)

    I have trouble reaching the roof racks. At full stretch I can just push up with my hands enough to get an edge on the bars. My current one is only 3.6m and 20kg. I need a step.
