Have you thought of just motorizing the Bicycle?
What's oxymoron about it?

We are going to have fun mountain biking in Crested Butte.
We are going to have fun riding to Crested Butte.

The 950s make the ride there and back enjoyable (unless you'd rather sit in a car?).
The mountain bikes are the fun when we are there.

What's not to get?

The 80/20 is pretty much extruded alloy 6061 T6.

Good stuff. They list the area moment of inertia for each offering. If you want to calculate stress, it's M*c/I. M is the weight of the bicycle * distance from the support. c= distance from centerline (typically 1/2 the height of the beam). I is the area moment of inertia.

Since aluminum doesn't have a fatigue limit, make sure you have a hefty safety margin above the yield strength and avoid any sharp edges that would create a stress riser.

So Geek,

Have you come up with a rack to mount my CT90 on the back of my Stelvio ? or vice versa.

Just kidding. Looks great.

Saw a guy riding through Ned the other day with a similar setup, and a kayak thrown on for additional fun!

For all the naysayers, I've been carrying a bike on the back of my motorcycle for over 20 years, in various configurations, to 49 of the 50 states, and it's never once caused me a problem, and I didn't even have any of that fancy 80/20 stuff (gonna have to find some of that - looks handy), just whatever scrap I had in the garage to make a rack out of.

If you get a pic of the guy with the kayak, I'd love to see how they are carrying it. Haven't figured out how to get one on my TA yet other than by trailer. Saw a KLR with a kayak mounted out to the right side like I've done with snowboards before, but seemed like way to much weight that far out to the side to be stable.

It looked as if it was a bracket, but on the opposite side from the bike. It was carried at a 45 degree angle, as was the bike. It was a small kayak.

Kayak, mountain bike, and a dog.

My setup seems not worthy



I wonder if Tweetie will let me borrow her F650GS

I heard rumor of a girls night out this week. I now have a TIG welder. 6pm my place?

Paula is looking for a new way to bring Holly on trips. I might be building a tow behind trailer this winter.
