Then I promptly ignored finishing the skid and just wheeled it like that. Even with it hanging down kinda low, it was very rare for me to tag it. When I did, it was usually when climbing ledges/waterfalls.
A few of those waterfalls put me at such an angle that the gas tank was still in danger when I had to back up, so it was finally time to finish up the skid.
And now its ready for some more abuse!
