Well finally bought a trailer

I have very very limited space living in the ciy so I wanted to get something more than my moto tote since I sometimes go to the track with more than one person. Found a deal on this trailer from a CLSB member and it fits perfectly in my parking garage spot. The next mods for the trailer is to get 2 Pit Bull trailer restraints and yank out the obtrusive eye hooks currently in the wood floor. Now I can fit max 3 bikes if I squeeeze them in or two bikes and a pit bike. The trailer is a 2006 5X10

Steve can I borrow your trailer in March? I'm heading to the Jennings GP trackday.

FYI, SBK_Drew on Rogue will make you the strapless restraints for around $16 each (basically just covers his shipping). They look just like the ones Sp2pilot made for the 6 to 7 bikes he hauled to Barber. I'm working on getting two from him now, hopefully I'll have them before our trackday weekend.

Yeah i saw that you posted up on that thread. I will call Pete tommorrow and see how happy he is with his as he uses the ones Drew makes also. Would save myself almost $600.

Hey Steve! I think I saw you yesterday while I was pumping my gas. You were going eastbound on Madison through Oak Park around 7:15pm. I was going to post up to see if that was anybody off the board! Congrats on the trailer!

The trailer is now turned around and locked to the wall of the garage. The camera set up is coming next.

Also G2G theres a company that makes ball a hitch lock its only about 25- 40 bucks.

It only take 10 seconds to load a bike and secure it. Also alot less space is used since you don't have to strap the bike down.
