Re: Trailer

Great job. Looks like a home made Bushtech hitch. How do you get the rear wheel off for a tire change?

Re: Trailer

It takes just a few minute 's to remove and the carrier was painted that color
so I just left it

Re: Trailer

Looks pretty good, for what you've got invested,
it should be easy to get your money's worth of pleasure out of it.

I would recommend replacing those safety chains with something that will break,
That's "car logic" and doesn't apply to two wheels,
if you should ever "go down" you don't want that trailer to stay attached to your bike.

But, would you not be exposing yourself to one hell of a lot of liability if said trailer ended up imbedded in a cage driver's skull approaching from the other direction?

(Better his than mine, I guess!)

Re: Trailer

Allright "Skidpad" tell us what is the real deal,

out of your grand total of nine post's five of them are "spam"
linking us to a car/truck hitch website,

do you own the company?
Do you work for them?
and what does that website have to do with anything motorcycle related?

I'm not a moderator but I do know there is plenty of opportunity
for you to advertise on this site if you're interested.
