I added a customer picture page to my website complete with links to your webpage if I have them. I figured I would help promote your business since you have helped mine! Thank you!

http://www.moto-mule.com/trailers-customerpics.html

I added the pics I had, feel free to send more. Any other customers out there that would like to be added please send me pics and links to your web page or blog. Thanks again.

Mike

Alex just has the stock, non-DOT tire, after about 3000 miles it hardly showed any wear. Which is understandable, there is hardly any weight on it and it is not a drive wheel.

Question Xr650l


Looks like the design is a total success! Now it's time to expand your customer base, there has to be a XR650L rider or two besides me that want one

I can build hitches to fit just about any bike, I just need access to a bike to build the hitch off of. If you guys live close to Springfield Oregon or can find someone on the forum in my area, I can build a hitch to fit it

Thanks,
Mike

Now I´ve got a nut to crack for you!
I´ve read all about Alex adventures and am a dedicated follower of his thread here and there´s where I saw the trailer.

Well now I´ve decided that I want one.

2 problems:

-1. My bike the Yamaha XT 660 X SM doesn´t excist in the US at all, never did...

-2. I live in Sweden in northern Europe...

-3. You´ll have to include a 24 gallon box with the shipment...

It shouldn´t be a problem anyway I think if i just provide you with the right measurements, right?

Manneman,
Is the axle hollow? Will a 3/8" (10mm) rod pass clear through the axle? If so, I would need to know the overall length of the axle.


I really only need the "A" dimension unless the tire is not close to being centered in the axle.

International shipping is quite expensive as I ship them currently, I would need to figure out how to ship them in a smaller package, perhaps two smaller boxes?? Are you quite handy if you had to assemble a trailer, more so than I currently show in the assembly video?

Mike

The axle is hollow but an 8 mm rod should fit better, 10 mm won´t go true and the overall length is 310 mm edge to edge.

Good idea about the shipping in separate packages btw and picking it together is no problem for me, I´m a carpenter so I´m used to problem solving matters.

Price including shipping? DOT tyre. No fender, I´m sorry but i think it looks hideous...
I just now found out that he Actionpacker from Rubbermaid is available in Sweden so I´ll manage fine!

If we do this right I take it to Africa on the 25th of May and hence promote it in my part of the world?

Manneman,
An 8mm skewer is not large enough.. Can you PM some pictures of your swingarm from each side. Also, could the axle be drilled out to 10mm without ruining the integrety of it?

What about 8mm in Stainless? Stronger than a conventional 10mm...? And then a bushing or sleeve on each end to accommodate the arms of the trailer
"tongue" where the skewer passes through...

From my point of view I´m not trilled about making the hole bigger so I´m open to any other solution.

Sorry, it's been a while.
I had to send my front wheel off to Woody's,
I'd messed it up last year, and waited until the snowfall to send it off.

I just got my first very short ride in yesterday in over three weeks.
Talk about withdrawals....I'm dyin' !!

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day right below Mt Hood, but still kinda cold at 45 degrees.
Good enough for photo op, and the Moto-Mule's Maiden Voyage







These other guys are right, you don't even know this trailer is behind you.
It is TOTALLY SWEET.
I can't WAIT to go moto-camping now

My hollow axle is significantly larger than the 10mm rod going through it,
so I just rolled up a small piece of cardboard to act as a bushing, to help keep the rod centered in the axle.
Seems to work just fine, indeed.

My business is Audio/Video,
.....so my first step was to integrate a rather nice Paradigm AMS-150-SM 8" Single Stereo Speaker into the Action Packer.
With a very small battery/12v powered 20wpc Stereo Tri-Path amplifier, and my iPod or Pandora from my phone,
and this Moto-Mule will fucking ROCK the campsites now !!!
