All packed and ready for IOMTT.

Getting anxious. You'd think I was entered in one of the races!

Trailer for sale

Get ready for Sturgis!

Selling my "rusty but trusty" H&H 5X10 tilt-bed open utility trailer. 3500-lb axle. I'm the original owner, bought from Gardner Trailers many years ago (like 20?). Lots of surface rust on frame but solid as a rock. Good P205-75R14 radials plus spare. Bearings good. New deck with CCA treated lumber 2 years ago. Lights work. Just used it to deliver the KLR to Des Moines at 70 + mph, no issues. Bought an enclosed trailer, need to sell this one. $500 OBO
Will post pics tomorrow

PM or e-mail tbirdsp@yahoo.com

Nope, going further west. Will be in Moab during that time.

Going to the BMW RA rally on the 14th (Copper Mountain), then staying out to ride with The Lawyer the week following.

2- 1 gal Rotopax fuel jugs with mount FS

Forgot I had these - used once (White Rim Trail at Moab). Will get some current detailed pics up soon.
http://www.rotopax.com/home.php
Two Rotopax RX-1G fuel jugs
One PX-PM Pack Mount
One RX-EXT Pack Mount Extension

Pack mount is fastened to a Bill Blue "Touring Luggage Rack Plate" to fit the '06-'07 KLX250S factory luggage rack.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...89&postcount=1
Possibly could be adapted to other racks.
NOTE: Don't carry this much weight on a KLX250S rack like this - the subframe will break - DAMHIK

Hard to believe this is over 200 bucks worth of stuff new How about $75 for local pickup.

Always wondered if there was a way to put a Rotopax on my bike without busting my subframe. Right now I carry a 32 oz Primus fuel bottle in my Giant Loop. 32 oz won't get me very far.

Actually what broke on the KLX was the cross-member that the rack bolts to, not the main structure of the subframe. I think I would have been OK with ONE gallon and the load more forward. The luggage plate is designed more for lightweight bulky items. I was carrying fuel for my friend's bike as well.
