Show Us Your Bike On A Trailer!

We can't always ride to where we want to start our ride for whatever reasons. So show us your bike on a trailer, and tell why you didn't ride it (if you can).

I'll start with one....



In Amarillo, TX.

Needed to get four dual sport bikes to Baja from mid-Tennessee, but only had three riders to start with. The fourth flew in from Thailand, and obviously couldn't ride to the start point. We saved a load of fuel and tires by hauling them this time.

Bought a new bike, and a shed, at the same time. I took my cousin Larry's advice and took the truck.

Because riding 4-up is fine for around town but not for going 1500miles to visit the brother-in-law in CA.

Oh well, deja vu all over again.

Mine has been on a trailer once, when it broke (FD).



The only other bikes I've ever put on trailers were not street legal.

Trailers are for broken bikes, dirt bikes, track bikes, and Harleys on a "run"
