Can't bring myself to take it apart and paint it...It's raining anyway.
Added some hold downs I had from VW baja bug days. Now no bungees.





More interior stuff. This box is BEEFY!

Picked up a used 21" dirt wheel from the 80s. Guess that means I have to start my trailer...

KTM 950esque?

Or at least move it to "Some Assembly Required". This is not a vendor's thread.

Rear rack. SOLID!
Found the chain rattled in the box so I added a wire loom from the old hot rod days.

Really starting to think about distance travel. Vacations are few and far between and money is tight but this really adds a lot of possibilities for the wife and I.
Got a decent size tent that fits perfectly. Need a double wide sleeping bag that folds small, couple pillows, candles, bacon....

Paul, now I remember you! I thought the name rang a bell but didn't think much about it. Then I saw that Fourmile pic. You were at FMF last year!

I'm drawing up my trailer now, stealing ideas from everyone on here

Yep, my wife and I were in a yellow tent closer to the road. I'm sure you met lots of people plus it was over a year ago!

Or two normal bags, one with a right zip and one with a left zip (provided they are the same size zippers).

Mr. Bracket, do you/will you sell the adapter plates (or whatever you use) for a KTM 950 Adventure?

If so, do you have pics and a price? I'm designing a trailer right now. I'd get one of yours but can't afford it now

Besides, I like building my own stuff, but I am stuck on how to anchor to the bike.

Thanks!

Post up a pic of your axle. Is it hollow?

Or go ask Bracket over here. He's left all us little people behind.
