    Can I carry enough?

    Probably not but at least the beer will stay cold. I figured I'd pop in and show how the bike is changing. I still need to do plenty but I can at least hit the road without worrying about space so much. I keep putting off the essentials like a better suspension or seat in favor of silly stuff like this though Anyhow, hope everyone is doing well!

    The wheel and tire are rated for hi-way speeds?

    Pretty sure, yeah. That's how I intend to use it for now anyhow. There's folks pulling these at much higher speeds than the TW is capable of.

    I haven't had a chance to use it loaded up yet but did about a 3 mile test around the neighborhood and down the highway. You can just barely tell it's there. I'd imagine fully loaded it might feel a bit like a passenger's weight, maybe harder to lean with a low center of gravity. I'll try to report back after I move some weight a ways.

    Looks like you can fit a kitchen sink in place of cooler, so yeah you CAN carry enough!

    Cool setup for getting away for a night or two.

    There was a guy on ADV Rider about ten years ago who had a setup very similar to that. He rode from Oregon to Minnesota and back, worked out really well.

    I can't remember his forum name but the guy you're talking about was a forum member here as well. I recognize your forum name from Advrider as well. Welcome to the TW world.

    I thought I saw enough room for a small collapsable kitchen sink right on the swingarm extension/ trailer mount.sink.jpeg

    Might even be room for a nice tent and shower combo too.shower.jpeg

    It was "Macadam Drifter." He had multiple myeloma and I think it took him in about 2011.
