Possible Trade: Ultimate MX Hauler for tray-style bumper carrier

I have an Ultimate MX Hauler that I might trade for a high quality tray-style bumper carrier.

I really like the Ultimate MX Hauler. It is super easy to load the bike, very secure, and holds the bike high and out of the way once jacked up, but it isn't ideal on very high receiver hitches, like the one on my Super Duty where the receiver is almost two feet off the ground! The bike sits on the platform like a bike stand, and clamps drop through the pegs to hold it securely to the platform. No straps needed, except a light one to just stop the front wheel from turning back and forth.

It works great on any receiver less than about 18". Particularly well on low hitches because it raises the bike fairly high so you don't drag the rack like you might with a tray style carrier.

The MX hauler lists for $420 plus shipping, cheapest I've seen new is about $350 plus shipping.

Ultimate MX Hauler:


Style I might be interested in trading for:


Also might be up to just buy a used tray style if somebody wants to get rid of one!

I would trade, but end up using mine to tow quite a bit.

'splain how this works. I have the Versahaul pictured above and may be interested in trading if the MX dealie is SUPER EASY to load by ONE person - me - a 50 y/o female with a bad back. Seriously.

I just bought the Versahauler new this summer - it was around $490.00

THe MX hauler would be far easier. The Versahual is nice, but takes more work than the MX hauler. I would go for it unless you are hauling a giant bike.

Assuming that your hitch is low enough that the mx hauler is lower than your skidplate when in the down position, the MX hauler is much easier to use. You simply position the skidplate of the bike over it, drop a couple threaded rods through the footpegs to secure the bike on, and jack it up. No lifting, no holding it while you find the straps, no trying to keep it from falling over, etc.

Moto Clothing For Sale

So I'm a gear/clothing whore and have collected some stuff I'm just not using/probably not ever going to use. The Motoport jackets aren't even close to being broken in, the alpinestars jacket is older but just stored in the closet and forgotten, and the other gear is brand new (purchased from New Enough recently). In most cases, I just should have returned the items for a refund, but laziness/sloth and all that ….. I'd like to get rid of this stuff locally, but will shovel it off to Gear > Flea Market if there isn't any interest here. Thanks for looking and feel free to PM with any questions.

http://web.me.com/curtisg/Moto_Gear_...rt_Jacket.html

Summary:

Motoport Air Mesh Kevlar Jacket Silver w/ Liner Size Large $325.00 Like New Condition (used less than 5 times)

Motoport Stretch Kevlar Jacket Black Size Large $275.00 Like New Condition (used less than 5 times)

alpinestars Jacket Black Size Large $70.00 Like New Condition (only used a few times)

Fieldsheer High Flow 2 Mesh Jacket Silver Size Large $75.00 Brand New Condition

Fieldsheer Four Season Pants (Mesh) Size 34 $75.00 Brand New Condition

FirstGear HT Air 2.0 Overpants (Mesh) Size 34 $75.00 Brand New Condition

Selling because they're too large for me. I wear a 11.5-12 shoe. 46 seemed too small, 47 is definitely too large for me. If I sell these I'll try 46.
Very good condition. Light use by me, the original owner. Soles in very good condition. They don't smell like doritos.
These Discoverys are also posted in the general flea market. Let me know if that's a foul.

-Sidi Crossfire size 47 (12-12.5) $65 plus shipping if necessary.
Boots are older but in very good condition. Come w/ extra strap and fasteners. Too much boot for my needs (and too large). No bad smells from these either.

Fs 2006 St1300

This well equiped ST is in very nice shape and operates flawlessly. I just completed a 5300 mile trip to the East coast and it was a charm. I have ridden this bike mainly on long trips, from New Mexico to Canada, the East Coast, Tennessee, Louisiana, Northern California, so it now has 29,000+. It has an aux fuse panel, heated grips, powerlet & cig lighter ports, CB over size screen, modified gel LD seat, bar risers, throttlemeister, convex mirrors, top box with light, bag liners, probably more. Will get new oil and filters tomorrow, has been serviced (valves) at the dealer. This is a great smooth machine for $8400.

Aprilia SL1000 Falco R 2003 $4400

Thinning the herd. This is a sweet and comfortable sporty twin with plenty of grunt. It is very clean, is up to date on service, hell it's hardly been driven
I bought it a year ago and have enjoyed it although have not put a lot of miles on it. Have a new bike coming. Here is a review:
PRICE
MSRP $10,999
ENGINE
Type: l/c 60-deg. V-twin
Valve arrangement: dohc, 8v
Bore x stroke: 97.0mm x 67.5mm
Displacement: 998cc
Compression ratio: 11.4:1
Transmission: 6-speed
Final drive: #525 chain
CHASSIS
Weight: 495 lb. (wet)/465 lb. (fuel tank empty)
Fuel capacity: 5.0 gal.
Rake/trail: 25.0 deg./3.82 in. (97mm)
Wheelbase: 56.1 in. (1425mm)
Seat height: 32.0 in. (820mm)
SUSPENSION
Front: 43mm inverted cartridge fork adjustable for spring preload, compression and rebound damping
Rear: single shock adjustable
for spring preload and rebound damping
PERFORMANCE
Horsepower: 87.5 ft.-lb. @ 8750 rpm
Torque: 60.4 ft.-lb. @ 7000 rpm
Corrected 1/4-mile*: 11.18 sec. @ 120.41 mph
0-60 mph: 3.41 sec.
0-100 mph: 7.94 sec.
Top-gear roll-on, 50-70 mph: 4.44 sec.
Fuel mileage (low/high/average): 38/45/41

Of course mine is faster, yes really because it has been derestricted, stock it comes with a really small intake inlet but pull that out and snip a wire to get the new map and you get a big boost in power plus a nice intake sound.
This is a whole lot of Italian sexy machinery for a mere $4400.
In Southern NM.

Surly Cross Check 62cm 400 bucks

Hello, Y2K Surly Cross Check here.
-62 cm for you taller folks
-set up with flat bars and 28c road tires
-mutt of XT, 105, LX, Dura-Ace parts, all good stuff
-professionally assembled by Bicycle Jones
-Has flite saddle, not illustrated in pictures, I have several saddles around to negotiate with...
-bob nutz not included

I will be happy to work with you changing the set up if you want road bars/STI, rack, fenders, knobbies... whatever. But 400 for how it is right now, dirt and all.

Bike doesn't have a lot of miles on it. It was my winter bike up in Alaska and a commuter for a while (one whole mile each way!). Spent most of its life hanging in the garage. Does have some honorable marks of its intended multi surface capability.

Also have a surly 1x1 hub laced up for a 26 incher.

Would be very interested in trading for a road bike or road parts and of course moto stuff.
