    A little different setup than the guy who came to visit me last fall. Should give you a little more room for stuff.

    The tall load won't be much fun in cross winds.

    Good looking bike Jerry. Try not to let the snipers get you down.

    I was trying to make a helpful observation that may help avoiding a unpleasant ride through the open plains.

    What's a little wind? When it's strong enough it makes the ride more interesting.

    Jerry, welcome to becoming trailer trash!

    Your camping trips will be more enjoyable with the “extra stuff” you can haul.

    My one wheel trailer, for the most part, doesn’t even feel attached as it follows my bikes down the road. Maybe that is why it doesn’t affect fuel mileage. My only regret is it capacity is only seven cubic feet, not nine.

    Enjoy your setup!

    Most certainly quite the Beemer you've brought to life, Jerry!

    Hope you find the time to put it to use in the New Year; we'll be somewhere in the Ozark Empire campgrounds with our pop-up next 16-19 June. We'll connect somewhere at the rally and 'Pop a Top' My trailer comes equipped with a modest ice-chest!


    Happy Christmas and Merry New Year everyone!

    Here we are on our CoddiWomple Cruisers somewhere in Oregon with the nearby forests still smoldering. With the load forward on the hitch, it pulls very nicely behind the GT... It's the lousy road surfaces that sometimes make the camper wander while I'm riding between the heavy-truck wheel tracks [i.e. 2-lane logging roads].
