Trailer Anyone??

Anyone want to contribute to my craziness and let me borrow a trailer? I want to trailer the bike down to FL for a day or two I will have the trailer back on Tuesday.

Or where would you all suggest renting one from and what size?

Thanks!!

I know there is a couple guys that have a Kendon trailer, which would be best (it's open and light)

Having towed a couple bikes though, I would much rather rent. There are a couple places out here in the burbs that you can get it done for $35-$50/day, and it comes with a ramp and chocks. http://www.advantagetrailer.com Tell them, or wherever you rent from, what you are towing with, and they should hook you up with the right size.

Rent an enclosed to keep the salt off the bike.

What do you have to pull the trailer?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

For a trip like that in this weather - rent a cargo van from Enterprise. It's a little spendy - but WAY worth it when you realize it's out of the salt - and secure when you leave it in the hotel lots at night.

Thanks Everyone for the info. I will need to save it. I couldn't get anyone to be as crazy as me and go for the few days.
I am just tired of not doing shit for New Years and I didn't want to shell out a boat load of cash to be in a club. So I figured I would go to see my Dad in Port Charlotte, FL and spend the weekend riding.

Oh Well, Guess I will just need to plan shit instead of being sponteneous

OR

...you can always go down there and rent a bike. Cheaper all in all - and it's always fun to beat on someone else's toys!
