Trailer for my wee??

Really considering one of these for my 2012 wee.
http://www.bushtec.com/default.asp?p...=xNewInventory
I ride and camp 2-up a lot, and it would be nice to get some of the crap off the bike. I've ridden bmw airheads with a standard bushtec, and could barely tell it was back there. Plus, I can take more flyrods, and my waders and boots!! Probably make it easier to take my mountain bike places also instead of strapping it on the back seat.
AND, be great for gathering up firewood!!!
I know someone will post about the motomule trailers, but they just don't do it for me, this little bushtec looks promising though. I don't ride on trails, just fireroads and such. another bonus is they already make a hitch for the strom, which is nice, and not too clunky looking.
on my recent trip west, I just kept thinking how handy it would be, and how much easier and versatile it would be to pack. I usually plan my trips so I camp for 2 or 3 nights in one location anyways, allowing me to explore an area without all the junk on the bike, I really think a trailer would be the way to go.

That looks pretty cool. Would like to hear how it works out if you end up going that route.

Allow me to be first. One wheel trailers follow the same track of your bike. Two wheel trailers behind a bike have 3 tracks - more tracks than a car, making it hard to miss potholes and roadkill.

Other than that, that's a great looking little trailer, and as you said; they already make a hitch for your bike.

I really dig my trailer... but it is a motomule

Almost 5 years, thousands and thousands of miles... several multiweek expeditions... one of my very favorite gear purchases ever and the builder stands behind his products. I'd buy again in a heart beat.

Motomule all the way.
