    At that point you just have to buy a Jeep and take the doors and top off.

    The only time an 800gs ever got single digit fuel mileage right there.....lol
    That has got to be a lot of resistance and weight.

    The LC bikes should be the same in theory but we still need to confirm dimensions as the drive is different.

    side note: your parts are on the way with the extra bushings you requested.

    I just got back from a coast to coast trip ( 7150 miles) with my trailer . Everything worked great , Only problem was at 90 mph it started to wiggle bad ( tank slapper ). would not stop til i got slowed down to 60ish mph . I just stayed under 85mph the rest of the trip .

    I packed all the heavy stuff in the front and low , to try to help it .


    Also the flag pole broke off someplace just before the Nevada boarder .

    All in all trailer worked fine and as expected...

    There you go! I took the 48g on a trip up north island recently with way too much crap in and on it, behind the 701 you tube video dropping shortly of that sweet little adventure. I will be sure to post it up here when it’s ready.....

    It could be done now with the "roof rack bars" and a basket for the 24g actionpacker. I won't have any marketing photos until next spring though.

    With nearly a 100 units turned out this year it has been decided that we will shut down the shop for the winter and take a break. I will be heading to Baja for an extended vacation. As of today we can still turn out 10 more units for mid November shipment. The new SherpaX SS is also available with basket ends for the 35g and/or 48g actoinpackers for an introductory price of only $150usd over the price of the standard SherpaX! As always inmates have first crack on these last few spots. I will post this news on our other media feeds in a few days.


    Update: 9 out of 10 spot remaining......

    The hitch for the 2004 - 2012 R1200 GS is ready for production, however I am not sure how to go about launching it. I have promises for purchase going back 3 years and there is no way I could fill even half of those potential orders.
