Hmm, those C14 guys think their extra 100 CC makes them far superior to my 10 year old ST1300 model that Honda sees no need to make changes to except for the color.... I'd probably have to prove otherwise.

Been transporting on a single bike hitch carrier. I know some of you have trucks/vans, trailer, maybe a toy carrier. Throw some options out there that work for you. I'm not very creative

My thought is a 3 rail trailer? Could get by with a 2 rail. Examples? Either a well liked model or a specific listing - like it to be cheapish (under a grand) TIA

Here ya go. Pretty nice lite, little trailer--and unusual design--for $750. You'd never have trouble finding it in a sea of haulers!

My riding plans for Memorial Day weekend: None. Not riding. At all. Anywhere.



Srsly, after last weekend my travel itch is scratched and last year my memorial day ride was mostly stuck behind oblivious dickholes who are quite happy to amble about at 8mph under the limit in long lines of retardation while I fume in my helmet.

I hate Memorial Day on the roads.

I'm gonna go kayaking with the pooch and do an overnighter. Much more relaxing.

What? I was ready to ride off-road again today...maybe not the Hanging rock 200 but off-road I got the ST13 out on Sunday and moved the Ohio Tag (not the one on this site) too.

I've always wanted to get into Kayaking too but never had anyone else that was interested and didn't want to go alone... ;)

I was just kidding about the C14 guys too. The guy I went to Alaska with last year was on a C14...he found out that a radiator guard is a good farkle to have though. ;)

I do solo trips about 99% of the time....if you count me and my lab as a solo act. It's fun with other people, but I enjoy being out on the water alone. I just cruise and camp, not really a fast water guy.

Solo is tough as you have to either do a lake/loop or arrange travel from your destination back to your truck. I usually talk my nephew into dropping me off and then getting me at the destination.

So no trip down the upper gauley river in WV? I've done it about 10 times in small raft but always wanted to try it in a Kayak...of course after I learned how to do it. ;)

Those guys that do it standing up are nuts too. lol

I soooo want to raft the Gauley one of these years. I've rafted the New River several times now, but the Gauley just looks amazing.

I love Kayaking as well, but I've never had the opportunity to get on a kayak on rapids. Some day!

Maybe we should organize a trip for this fall. I'm sure we could get some people from here to do it. I haven't been for several years so I'm ready to go again. ;)

I've always used an outfitter called "Rivers" when I've gone. That place gets pretty wild at the Red Dog River Saloon after the trips!

I might be able to work that out. My girlfriend/friends enjoy the New River, but none sounded excited when we all started talking about the Gauley. Pansies.

I don't like being upside down in the water, where there are big rocks. You guys can kayak the Gauley all you want. Be sure to put a Go-Pro on.

Why of course...we Go-Pro'ers don't take a dump without one on.
