    Here are a few new pics. The boys over at ProCycle let me use some of their dual sports to show fitments for some popular bikes.

    And he's ON that list of five,
    congrats, Mr, Fisherman.....LMK what you think, this looks REALLY cool and purposeful.

    The only thing I've really been missing in my camping setup has been the kitchen sink.
    Wow, now I might be able to bring that, too?
    But, I'm guessing these don't fit the big bike axles....yet......like, a 2007 KTM 990 Adventure?

    Papa Yolk, hi!

    Certainly at the moment Mr. Bracket's beautiful trailers are the focus, but I would like to say that your tiny teardrop trailer is so cute! It might not be as capable of leaping over logs and taking jumps as Mr. Bracket's trailers, but I could honestly see towing one like yours into places where my GS would be comfortable going.

    Would you mind sharing details about your trailer, and maybe more photos please?

    Thank you so much.

    Enjoy,


    Liz

    Mr. Bracket,

    Can your trailer handle highway speeds (70-80mph)?

    Yes, the guy that bought the first one, pulls his behind his DR650 on the highway all the time. My Husaberg is not much of a highway bike, I avoid the highway if at all possible, that's why the trailer is designed the way it is, I like me some single track!!! :evil

    Now that I am selling them, I started a new thread. Sorry for flooding this thread. Please direct traffic specific to the moto-mule trailer here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=17319766#post17319766

    Now this thread can go back to a generic dual sport trailer thread and we can watch the development of PapaYolk's trailer and perhaps TheCheat will come back some day and show us his next version!

    Thank you for all your input!

    Mike
