    I was thinking of mating up my 92 XLH 1200 sportster to a hack. My question, When you park is there a break to keep it from rolling or do you have to leave it in gear????

    Also whats the least expensive hack with a trunk???

    You leave the bike in gear. I suppose you could rig a velcro strap for the front brake lever if you were worried about it.

    Velorex is probably the cheapest on the used market. It doesn't have a trunk but on most units the seat back folds forward for storage behind even if there is not a trunk.

    I use a Velcro strap on the front brake when I want to leave the rig running at idle.
    The strap goes around the master cylinder when not being used.

    However I leave it in gear when parked normally (engine not running)

    I have seen rigs with linked brakes that have a handle to engage the rear/car brake, but the strap works fine for me.

    With sufficient public humiliation and punishment, anything is possible!

    Very nice. Who makes that chair? I'm thinking something like that would be just the ticket for my Triumph classic.
