The Way They Do It In Japan

Thanks to a faithful reader called "Nicker" who sent me these pictures, you know now how they tow cars in Japan.  I guess it’s a way to support their motorcycle industry.  I wonder how they tow motorcycles. I guess it can’t be the same way. Do you know?

    Cyril,

    You need to check out the VID’S that are out on YouTube and other places with this thing in action.. Very interesting on how fast they can stop, unload the ‘grabber’, hook up the car and gone… kinda freaking cool……. check it out sometime….

    Great Blog, great info as always!

    As always, the Japanese lead the way with innovation.

    That would certainly be a lot faster and safer, than riding shotgun, on a tow truck, repossessing used cars ! LOL

    That Goldwing has as much stopping power as most small cars have, if
    not more!, Besides, in Japan they don’t drive fast and crazy like us YANKs do. They probably don’t tow big american cars, or trucks this way
    anyway. My Goldwing can tow a 1986 Cutlass to 20 mph, stops it easily,
    using a towbar.I just HAD to know!

    That’s not a Japanese invention! That’s a “Retriever” by Sedish company named/web site : comingthrough.se
    Sincerely,
