    looks nice Albie.

    let me guess, the goal is to be able to haul at least 1/3 of what is in your garage?

    That is why I haven't acquired an enclosed trailer yet. I have to find a place to park it. I didn't realize that the covenants of our neighborhood does not allow trailers or motorhomes parked in the driveway. I am thinking now that I might be able to park it out at the airport, outside but inside the security fence. Got to go check that out and make sure noone has a problem with that. No room in the hangar. :norton

    This story creeped me out a little bit...
    nlp


    Calhoun County, SC (WLTX) -- South Carolina's Highway Patrol is reporting a late morning fatality involving a motorcycle rider.

    Shortly after 10AM on Monday, on I-26 near mile marker 141, an unidentified rider of a BMW motorcycle, headed westbound, was unable to avoid hitting a dog in the roadway, and was thrown from his bike.

    A tractor trailer driver then swerved to miss the motorcycle, but struck the rider, who died from his injuries.

    Officials have not released the rider's name, pending family notification.

    Those Kendon stand-ups are great trailers, but expensive as heck. Knowing you (cheap), you got it for a song I bet. I stand mine up in the garage along one wall. Out of the way. Mine is just the single, and it tows great. But you have to make sure you tie the bike down all the way, right Kris? :huh

    Ahhhh. Morro Bay California. Finally made it to the warm weather (70 degrees) and have been soaking that and the sea air up, watching the sea otters play in the bay, then partaking of fresh fish and shrimp. Life is good! Of course the drivers are nuts, but as several have pointed out, so are those out on 540.

    Hope everyone stays warm tonight.

    Yup, they're great trailers. Paid less then half of what they cost brand new. :D

    I've towed a lot with the 2 bike trailer, got 3 buddies that have them. Only thing I don't like about them is the crappy ramp. But I've got the ATV ramp that works great so no big deal.

    Albie you are so right on that Kendon ramp. It is too narrow and if you aren't in the center of it, it twists off. I nearly dropped my big bike off it last time, high centered on the frame. I think I'll get a project to my welding guy at work.
