    Major brainstorm (for me anyways)



    So, i had a bit of an epiphany today. I waste so much time loading and unloading my four wheeler and bike with a trailer in the way. Always need to detach the trailer in order to get the the bike ramp on. Major waste of time, but in this case i was able to flip the spare tire horizontal to make room for the rack. Problem solved! Super fast to load and unload both. Hopefully this could help someone else.
    Best of luck!

    I also love it when the light bulb comes on. . Nice toys...I've never seen a rear seat like the one on your ATV. How do you like it?

    Another way is to back up and jack-knife the trailer - usually gives enough room to get a ramp on the tailgate.

    Nice, but I would put some expanded metal os something where I would have to walk on the ramp. I can just see myself slipping through and the bike falling on me with no one around to help.

    I think its a Moose racing seat. When i bought the four wheeler i was talking to the guy i bought it from about wanting to get one for my dog to ride in. He said he had one and i could have it for free! Looked it up after, think that it was near $300. The pup rides well in it and you cant beat all the locking storage.
    I used to just pick up over the side too(actually i picked it and then did a backflip off the cab with it and placed it gently on the ground), but all my riding partners girlfriends and wives wanted to know why they werent real men like me, so in the interest of happy homes, and saving relationships and such, i quit the practice.
    Ive always driven the trailer at normal highway speeds. No issues that i can remember.
    That jack-knife idea is pure genius. Well done! I can jack-knife a trailer with near no effort at all! I will say i do like the new wide step stool for coming off the tailgate (horizontal instead of vertical spare tire)
    The expanded aluminum is definitey on the list. The only good thing is id have to try to get one of my riding boots through there, but not saying it wont happen at the worst time. Definitely on the list.

    Heck yeah. Except that trailer is a bit small for the moose ive seen around here. Got some messy pics of using a come-along and a bike ramp with cardboard on it to drag a cow mooseup into the bed of a pickup from two seasons ago. Talk about a beast!

    Heres the infamous wolf-slayer himself(in his moose racing seat) boiling for a fight.


    And here he is getting some pets after single handedly wiping out an entire pack!
