I can't call fail here
What? You like that colour..?
Well, to each his own I guess...
How else are you going to get someone with a walker out and about on less the 4 wheels though?
I got this.
You guys totally missed the big one on that pic.
Yeah, he's towing a trailer.
Yeah, he's two-up.
Yeah, he's on a touring bike.
Yeah, he's on 129.
But did you see the Florida tag???
It's a corner.
And he's railing it.
On a corner.
Big picture: Win!
Fashion failure! He should tuck the jeans into his boots or buy longer riding pants. Oh, and their helmets don't match.
He's probably spent a lot of time practicing on the exit ramps down there in Flatistan.
And he's already got his dragon sticker on the luggage.
Shit, I've got REPSOL decals on my bike. I'm pretty much MotoGP.
I've got Husqvarna stickers on my bike, does that make me a lumberjack?
My bike has Kawasaki stickers on it, so I guess I'm Japanese now
So if I can catch up with you , might you really be bantha fodder?
While some trailers are quite noticable behind, I had Bushtec (a slightly larger verion of the one in the pic, but with the same large wheels and air suspension) which was practically invisible as far as cornering was concerned -- zero effect on my K12LT's handling. The only cornering worry was forgetting it was back there and getting too close to the inside of the corner (i.e., dropping a trailer wheel off the tarmac). I currently have a Uni-Go, so no more two-track wheel worries, but I definitely feel the little trailer's feeding back into the K16's handling.
IMO, it is better to put a good share of the weight into the trailer, because it makes the bike lighter/easier to handle at low speed. If you load the trailer to maintain the correct amount of tongue load, the combo works well.
Ah.. all is right with the world. It is good to know that someone else's memory also grabbed this vision as well. I would have thought it would have been the immediate response. I guess the crowd here is getting a to be a bit young.
and at high tide to boot....
Sorry, I didn't ge there before you started to worry.
BTW, my response would have been, "I don't know. Are you OK?"
