    Sorry!

    It was heavily modified by the previous owner-

    - axle upgrade
    - third rail
    - LED lights
    - additional bracing

    Previous owner used to haul 3 dressed out Harleys on it!

    I saw one with possibility parked at 40 and Zeta. Looked light duty and wicked new for $100 OBO.
    I have no use for it but thought an inmate might.


    I have zero connections with this other than thinking I could pass along the info. It's across from Wrigley's.
    Hope it helps someone.

    Sorry Edward, it was because I was working outside again-

    Welded tiedowns onto the additional bracing & painted it- (primer here)

    I top coated it with some glossy black and then put both the 990 & the 450 on it to see if the stagger between the middle & outside chocks is ok (I squeezed 'em on).

    Leigh... that is one mighty find trailer you got there. Bring it over to Durango and haul my bike back to Denver for some warranty service. Thanks. Bob :lol3

    Bad, bad news. But it seems that Kevin's break is adjustable to a back brace at least and not any paralysis or internal injuries??

    Man, I could not agree more. We definitely need a pro-lane-splitting lobby in Colorado... a change in the current law is way overdue.

    very good video but I'll admit that anything other than crawling traffic would scare me to try this

    I wouldn't have the slightest hesitation to do it in Europe or even in California where the cagers are used to it. Here? HELL NO... some overzealous motorist is likely to open his door just to show you he's boss. Hmmmm... I HAVE been known to use the breakdown lane on the Boulder Turnpike during rush hour traffic, though :wink:

    So, why is a concealed carry class here in Colorado a hundred bucks, and this does not include the permit or practice part? I looked around and this seems to be the going rate. If anyone can find cheaper, I am all ears. At least it should include lunch.

    The first few times splitting seems scary. Then you learn to just flow with it. No different that passing traffic.
