Yes she is. Trailer chassis and hitch built by a friend in Melbourne. Tows well although could do with being a bit more aerodynamic. Corners well. Attaches to bike through the hollow rear axle.

Rode it to a conference last week in the Barossa Valley which is where the pic was taken. Small suitcase fitted in nicely, just like having a boot! (Trunk for American members)

Love to have something like that. Without the box even for carrying pushbikes.

How many hours in that? Does it have suspension.

Not sure how long it took, but its the second one he built. Suspension is a mountain bike (bicycle) shock. Very basic. Could do with a slightly stiffer spring when loaded up.

That's a pretty sweet rig. Mind taking some close-up pics of the attachment to the swingarm?

Menglers Hill lookout. Bethany Wines just down the hill. Bet you got the funniest looks along the Chain of Ponds Road on the way out. I'm originally from Sydney & trailers are forbidden in NSW, hence the question

I think you are allowed to tow in NSW, just not on L and P plates

I've always been fascinated with trailers behind motorcycles. Never done it though. I was really close to building a trailer to haul my dirt bike on. I went with a different solution.

I might still push a friend of mine to try it. He'll try anything...
