Has anyone seen the motorcycles at Deals Gap thread?
No fail really, just kinda...spooky...
Semi-blind corner on the gap, bodywork touching pavement, with a passenger and a trailer.
He probably knows what he's doing, but there's just not a lot of room left for error, or the stupid lurking around the corner.
It looks to me like he has a lot of room left...but it would include sliding his butt off the seat and moving his torso to the inside of the turn.
I'd vote for "he knows what he's doing." The black spot on the left lower fairing is where a K1200LT touches down at about the same time the stands make contact. Judging from the pretty thorough grinding on both the side and center stands and the footpeg, and the absence of any scrapes on the bags or upper fairing, it's pretty clear this isn't his first rodeo.
I vote FAIL!!! Pulling a trailer with a motorcycle is a fools game.
Plus those don't even look like trailer tires.
Standard Bushtec-issued rubber. You think'n car tires would work mo betta?
why is he leaning away from his turn, instead of in to it?
So a question to the quandry that presents.
Is it better to overload the bike and do a single vehicle or pack the bike light and the trailer only part to capacity then and thus a tow? This is assuming that even the overloaded bike is packed with best wt distribution and the bike/ trailer set up with same best wt distribution and tongue wt.
To those that tow..we want to know.
I see another Kennedy assassination style photo-analysis in the near future.
Are you saying there is another trailer on the grassy knoll?
I don't tow, so I don't know...
Invalid question. It is better to leave all the unnecessary crap behind.
No it's better to leave the old women at home and pack light. bete.
If pack rat you should be driving a convertible, you are. Herh herh herh.
I wonder if it is some variation of the Amazonas:
