    The little Wee that could. ~650 miles, including through NYC, and the bike handled it like a champ.

    Good thing you quit waiting on us to accompany you on your trek.

    It’s getting too cold to ride up here anymore and the dreaded salt trucks are out already.

    PS - Nice garage. Lots of room for friends’ bikes when they come down to visit!

    That's some ingenuity to get that up on the catwalk. Cant be easy to get a 215 kilo Wee up there. That trucker must have some real long ramps stowed away. Or maybe he just gets it on or off when a forklift is around.

    Don't complain, its ingenious, at least he is riding somewhere sometime when he has a break. Most probably invented some winch system to get it on and off....

    The platform it's on looks like it rotates and is possibly it's own ramp. That's wild though, I never would have thought there would be that much space there, I always assumed the trailer corners would use that space in tight turns.

    Na, really that's not that high up, lots of 4x4 PU beds with off road scoots in the bed, a decent MC ramp would stow easily and that looks to be a good sized sleeper.... but agree it is clever :D That also looks like a extended chassis so corners outa be ok....?

    I operated construction cranes (up to 120 ton) for 30 years. I would carry a m/c instead of towing a jeep
    in warmer weather when overnights were needed. I should have tried his same idea when I drove
    tractor/trailer in between as well..
