Need an enclosed trailer !

Anyone has an enclosed trailer I can borrow/rent this weekend to haul a bike I will be buying in MI? I called around and none of the Uhaul in my area has one available. I will pick up on Friday and return on Saturday if you are around NW suburb area. If you like to join me drive down there and help me inspect the bike I will also cover breakfast and lunch ;-) Help me out!

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

HDTony,
I have never load a bike into a van....sounds like more than one man job. I would be sad if I drop my new bike on the first day I own it ;-)
ashwingop,
Thank for the kind offer, please keep me posted...

I'll let you know by tonight....I can't do much from here (at work).

I can load and un-load my bike into and out of the van by myself with the ramp that I have.....of course having a 2nd person does help though. What bike are you getting?

Ernie,
I have no space for a trailer. I have a 3 car garage but I already have 4 cars and going to be two bikes plus I don't want my front yard to look like a car dealer ;-)
So far I have good experience with Uhaul and it's very cost effective for me.
ashwingop,
Thanks, I am getting a nicely prepped k7... can't wait..

bmoney,
Thanks so much for the offer, I think it may be a little too far for me to pickup/return and I am not all that confident to drag around your trailer in the city street with all those crazy drivers around ;-)

Nope, I was just following the add on the WERA board. it was similar to what I was looking for, but didn't have suspension or a quick shifter so I passed on it.

If you are still looking for a trailer, I highly recommend Mopar's. I'd buy it if I had something to tow it with.

Thanks guys, I only took a spin of the bike in the parking lot. My monster has a lot more torque compare to it but I didn't really get into the powerband yet.

Here are some info of the bike:
Stock engine.
Stock suspension (Race Tech shock spring, rebound damping and preload adjusted by Jeremy McWilliams and the factory Showa suspension engineers).
K&N air filter.
Full Micron GP stainless exhaust.
Power commander 3 USB.
Woodcraft engine covers.
Woodcraft frame sliders.
swingarm sliders.
Vortex rearsets
Vortex clip-ons
stainless front brake lines.
Vortex sprockets (2 rear and 2 front) and RK 520 chain.
Fully safety wired
Pirelli Diablo III tires
