The weekend is just around the corner for those who haven't been enjoying some prolonged Independence Day celebrations. Some of us will want to load the bikes up and escape civilizations for a little while to enjoy a moment of communion with dirt tracks and nature. There's an art to loading a motorcycle and we already have some tips and advice for your consideration on how to do it properly without anybody—or the bike—getting hurt. But for every successful load, there are at least 20 fails. It's Friday. We deserve to indulge in other people's mistakes. Here are a few loading techniques you might want to avoid.

1) The mechanical bull

2) The Forrest
