What is the funniest thing you have hauled? Took the propane tank on it this evening to get it filled. Looked pretty goofy back there. Is that even legal to haul on motorcycle?

Two six packs and a bottle of tequila this evening. A pizza and wings last month. Skateboards before that. A giant plastic display dog I salvaged from Petsmart's dumpster one time, now that was the funniest for sure. People were taking pictures while in traffic. I got $75 out of that dog on Craigslist ya know.

I've taken a computer (guys said I couldn't pick it up on my bike.....sheesh). Apple Emac for those in the know, bloody heavy.



A roof-rack for the car (the TW was about 4 foot wide, but was still fine). I wonder if I had really cranked it over, I would have got a rack down......



Many cases of beer have been brought. They just fit so well.....

I'm totally down with the whole toilet paper hauling idea!






I have drug the sled around with the kids on in the winter time. Not exactly hauling on the rack, but a good use eh?

I feel bad not posting a pic of the LP tank. It was a funny feeling at the stop light after i had it filled. You could feel it sloshing around like a tanker truck.

I hauled a bag of cement on mine once, sure smoothed out the ride but I probably won't do that again!

If i was voting i would vote.for T dubble Ds dumpster dive find.


Thanks for the vote, I was desperately scouring my computer for a pic of the plastic dog but I think it's gone.
It was too big to fit in my Corolla's trunk if that gives you any idea what the scenario looked like.

Five gallons of used motor oil. A couple bags of groceries and ten dozen eggs.



I haul the LP tanks to get the filled as well. As long as they are secure, I doubt it is illegal, but who knows -- seems like we get a new batch of laws almost every day.

I've got a customer who ordered 6 tires for his rental bike fleet, so I delivered them on the TW in one trip.

I used to live in central Africa, and honestly I wish I had photos of the loads I've seen on bikes a lot smaller than a TW. Live goats straddling the tanks. A hundred or so pounds of bananas tied to every surface imaginable. I once saw a convoy of three bikes, the passengers holding sheets of plate glass in the air above them (each sheet was about 3'x6'). The general rule for cargo was to add weight until the tires rubbed the fenders and then remove enough to give three millimeters of clearance.
