Trailer Assistance Please

Hey Everyone! I am doing my first track day at the Autobahn in Joilet, September 1st & 2nd and wanted to see if someone could let me borrow their trailer to haul my bike to and from the track on those days?

I'm sure someone has some spare leathers you can borrow. And as far as time goes....once you get a taste, you make time....and money for that matter

I implemented a crash fee... LOL!

$75 minimum if they hit the ground. I send them to Alexa, and the borrower pays for shipping and repairs in excess of $75.

Who's going to Autobahn on September 1st & 2nd?

Is there anyone my bike can rideshare with... I don't have a trailer hitch on my car... Maybe I should have mention that first...

Sorry can't help ya unless you wanna ride your bike here (Joliet) and park in my garage both days and just drive your car up. I'm only 5 minutes from the track.

PM me if interested even as a last resort

Also people can vouch for me that I'm trust worthy...Shut up Maynard!!


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Is there anyone going to the Autobahn on Saturday, September 1st and 2nd. I am still in need of trailer assistance. I don't have a hitch on my car to borrow an actual trailer.

Good luck, That is a Nesba blackhawk weekend. everyone with trailers will be there, it's gonna be loaded with CLSB people, you'd have much better luck getting a ride up there.

You can rent a pickup truck from u-haul for $19.95 per day plus .59 per mile. You will need a ramp and tie down straps to get the bike in the back. Also, you can post on that track day company's forum for help.

But if you are doing novice, you can ride the bike there with a roll of painter's tape in your bag. Then tape up your lights before tech.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

It will be a heck of a lot more fun, we have a huge cookout on saturday night, much drinks are flowing, and you might even get some pictures of yourself on the track.

at autobahn, all you get is yelled at by the track employees, if you stray from the pits, and dirty looks from the "members" I am disliking that track more and more everytime I go there.

See if you can cancel and get into blackhawk instead if it isnt sold out.

Ya last time I was there, Ken and I got kicked out from taking pictures anywhere on that track except by the garage in the pits. Friggin lame. Signs are posted everywhere that only members are allowed beyond this point, and the whole place is blacktop, making it hotter than hell. I really didn't like their attitudes. I have never been to any other track where i have to sneak around to get good shots, or have officials radio in about me. I don't think I'll ever go back which is sad cause I like to run the north course, south course is bumpy as hell, but the north course is decent.

In comparison, I show up at Blackhawk and Tom from the track comes out shakes my hand and welcomes me home. I say; Tom, you mind if I go take some pictures? sure, no problem Tony, have fun.

Checked if I were to cancel I would be losing those days (unless I sold them)... And yes BHF "B" group is full Saturday...
