    My wife isn't here so I will give design advice (typically I am forbidden from such actions as the historical results have been far less than desired). I'd color match it to your Suzuki: yellow frame, black rim, white or yellow rear fender.

    Regards,

    Sure is hot out here on this GNCC track. Wish I had a place to put this armored jacket.

    Once you get used to having a trailer it is hard not to take it with you... especially commuting...

    Can't bring myself to take it apart and paint it...It's raining anyway.
    Added some hold downs I had from VW baja bug days. Now no bungees.

    Picked up a used 21" dirt wheel from the 80s. Guess that means I have to start my trailer...

    KTM 950esque?

    Or at least move it to "Some Assembly Required". This is not a vendor's thread.

    Rear rack. SOLID!
    Found the chain rattled in the box so I added a wire loom from the old hot rod days.

    Really starting to think about distance travel. Vacations are few and far between and money is tight but this really adds a lot of possibilities for the wife and I.
    Got a decent size tent that fits perfectly. Need a double wide sleeping bag that folds small, couple pillows, candles, bacon....:freaky

    Paul, now I remember you! I thought the name rang a bell but didn't think much about it. Then I saw that Fourmile pic. You were at FMF last year!

    I'm drawing up my trailer now, stealing ideas from everyone on here :lol3

    Yep, my wife and I were in a yellow tent closer to the road. I'm sure you met lots of people plus it was over a year ago!

    Or two normal bags, one with a right zip and one with a left zip (provided they are the same size zippers).

    Mr. Bracket, do you/will you sell the adapter plates (or whatever you use) for a KTM 950 Adventure?

    If so, do you have pics and a price? I'm designing a trailer right now. I'd get one of yours but can't afford it now :lol3

    Besides, I like building my own stuff, but I am stuck on how to anchor to the bike.

    Thanks!

    Post up a pic of your axle. Is it hollow?

    Or go ask Bracket over here. He's left all us little people behind.:lol3
