Who has a trailer?

That I can borrow on saturday. I need to get my Valkyrie home from 4&6. I rented oone form uhaul but it was too small for that bike. It was scaring the hell out of me back there. Does anyone on the south side have one thats 5x8 or bigger?




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

You can borrow mine....but I'm a little farther than some other folks and it's a 4X8 tilt bed.... but it would work.

Thats about the size of the one I rented. Problem was since my bike is so wide, I couldnt get the strappes out wide enough which was causing the bike to sway back and forth a bit while trailering. I'm looking for something wide so I can get those straps out there.

Mike put some "engineering" into his trailer so it could hold 2 bikes. Therefore, he has extentions sticking out off the back and front w/ eyelets for tie downs. It might work...if you trust his "engineering".

I have a 5 x 8 enclosed if you think the Valk would fit in it. Youre more than welcome to come take a look at it or whatever

I keep it at my office just W of 59 and 95th Street
