    I modified the cargo trailer I tow behind my Goldwing to allow me to tow my TW. Check it out here if you're interested. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them, just be sure to use the back button to return to the blog.

    Now that is a slick idea. The trailer looks nice, clean, and well built.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Seems like unique, out-of-the-box thinking. I would be a little nervous with the combination but then, I have no experience with big bikes. Would you feel comfortable leaving the 'Wing' parked on some deserted side road while you are off exploring? Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    Hehe Gerry, I don't worry too much about the Wing. I usually just put a 1/2 cover on it and figure out of sight, out of mind. On top of that I have a 100k on it so while it still looks pretty good, the cream has been taken off of the top. Also, I have full coverage on it. As far as being able to tow the TW behind it, I have towed two TW's, a DRZ400, and a DR650 over 500 miles behind my Wing. Once I had an AZ DPS officer follow me on I-10 for about 30 miles at 85 mph. He must have thought it looked ok as he never pulled me over. One of the guys I've started riding TW's with down here is a retired LE officer that also owns a Goldwing, and he is wanting the same set up.

    Don't let him fool you...Big Lefty can hold his own on the trail too.

    He was leading the whole way on our ride out at Superior a few weeks ago.

    He is also the only man I have ever seen wheelie his Gullwing down the highway WITH a TDUB on the trailer behind.



    Lanni,

    Drop me a line, I want to have some lunch to talk about some extrusion processing.

    That's a Rick Mayer seat. I like it a lot better than the stocker and have done a couple of 200 mile days on it with no problem. You can google his website. He is located in Northern CA and the cost of the seat was $354 plus shipping both ways.

    There is a product that slides into a receiver hitch that has a "scoop" that holds the front wheel of a motorcycle. You could nix the trailer entirely.

    I want to make something that goes into the trailer hitch that the front forks bolt to with the tire removed, with guy-wires to the top of the forks to brace it. It would have to be small and light enough that it could be stored on the TW when not in use. This way I could tow the TW behind pretty much anything, deliver the vehicle to it's destination, and drive the TW away.
    We see the world not as it is, but as we are.
