Title: Photo of your bike locked and loaded
Post by: Buy early on June 02, 2011, 10:47:08 PM
Dude's thread on his trip out west triggered another group of photos I would love to see gathered in one place so this is the launch of the "Photo of your bike locked and loaded" thread.

Simple rules (that I am sure will be stretched, abused, worked around, and outright ignored).

Post a photo of your bike loaded up and ready for the journey to ... you name the destination. Doesn't have to be just the bike, people can be in the photo as well. So can pets, small rodents, even alien life forms if they are coming along for the journey and you needed to pack for them.

Photos of touring rigs are acceptable as well. Bikes with trailers, sidecars, trikes, non HD bikes, just no cages please.

No cute photos of the population of China stacked on to a Vespa along with 40 crates of live chickens please. No photos of vagrants on bicycles touring Western Zcblkistan. However, if you loaded up your BMW or KTM off road touring machine for the Dakar Rally and you want to post a photo of that, I'd love to see it.

Starting this thread with the photo "The Dude" posted of his secretly purchased CVO prior to take-off to the Tahoe CVO family gathering.

If it won't fit in these 2 big saddlebags, I don't need it. Across the street or across the country.

Every hotel has a laundry. All I need a 4 days worth of clothes, rain gear, long johns, cold weather jacket, light & heavy gloves, facemask, a toothbrush, a razor, sunblock, a big bottle of Advil, stuff to clean the bike with, and some basic tools.

Who did the eagle on the trailer Twolane?

Pinstripe guy who was working the rally in Hot Springs, AR the year a bunch of us met there for our own GTG while the rally was going on.  No idea his name but have seen him on the rally circuit for years all over the midwest.

I had the trailer painted the solid red.  He did all the graphics and striping on the sides and on the lid.

The guy did a nice job.  It's a near dead on mirror image from one side to the other and he free-handed the whole thing.  Don't remember the guy spending more than 90 minutes on the job even with stopping to talk with others asking about work.

Only thing I added after the striping and graphics was a gold door edge molding along the bottom and wheel wells.  Just noticed the molding was not there yet in the first picture with the SEEG but is there in a later picture with the SERG.

Obviously your wife has excellent taste! The PitBoss is a pretty cool trike.

The Kingpin was nice out of the box, but it's a lot nicer now... It wears a 2-1 pipe at the moment.

Well she's packed and ready to go. Eight clients and myself are heading south along the west coast to Cabo San Lucas, then heading north to Vegas for four days (fly all our wives down), then riding north to my cabin at Priest Lake Idaho to do some water skiing and beer drinking.... then limping home. Just over three weeks total.

One more sleep.

NOW THAT’S A NET!

If I don't miss my guess, that was purchase day. Normally, that's not the type of "locked and loaded" I was looking for on this thread BUT, it is a red Switchblade (the fastest color) and DaMykster is currently serving us all in Afghanistan so I cut him some slack.

Now compare my load to my wifes load.  She started riding her own bike so she could take more stuff.  LOL  Notice my bag on top, half the trip it was in the trunk.  My helmet and things I bought are in it.

Ha.  Kinda like us Infantry guys not sharing canned fruit out of your C-Rations...It was heavier and if you packed it in, you got to eat it all.  You make your choices and you live with it.  She's gotta have her 'stuff'.....I can identify.  Just don't know how you get away with saying 'no'.  :-\ har.  spyder

I pay for her bike.  In fact, I pay most all the bills, and all the fun.  She works part time, as an MSF instructor and as a Riders Edge instructor.

Funny thing is for years she wanted no part of riding her own bike.  Around 2004 I just quit asking her about it.

In March of 07 she tells me she signed up for the MSF class.  She got her first bike April 14 2007, a 883 low, Seven weeks later we did a 2500 mile round trip on the bikes to Key West.  She had 24K plus miles on the 883 in Jan of 09 when we traded it for the heritage.

She got her MSF instructor cert in March of 09, three weeks before the four year point her her being a motorcycle rider.    In four years and five months she has rode over 100K.

I'm pretty dang proud of her.  I'll trust riding with her more than most any one else.

I'm not a fan of trailers by any means. I always thought a trailer would get the best of you in an emergency situation. Unfortenitly a friend of mine just proved my theory when he blew a tire on his trailer and wrecked putting him and girfriend in the hospital. That was a goldwing with trailer. Just saying. don't think the overloading looks or is safe. I am an aggressive rider and that makes things even worse when overloading tire ratings etc. I loaded up the low rider for Sturgis in 02 and had a wind gust on 95 in S.D. send me from right lane to left shoulder before I could blink an eye. I have passed bikes on the rode and wondered how the tires had not already blown out. I know prople do it. Not my cup of tea. I discovered ups'ing my gear to sturgis and love it. Maybe a winebago is in thier future?  :2vrolijk_21:

Yes Spy, tank bag. Picked it at Deal Gap couple years ago. I had just almost missed a pic of a bald eagle that flew directly at us at the Fontana Dam. Spent too much time trying to get the camera out of the saddlebag.

It is made for bikes, magnets and straps. I cut the straps off, the magnets are good enough. As long as the tank is clean when you put it on and you don't slide it around, no harm.
Prior to getting a different camera I probably have 8-10000 miles using this,
In fact, I like the convenience and using the bag enough to consider getting a bit more compact DSLR to be able to use it again. And best of all it is RED!

However, I did find the picture of our pre-dawn exit to SD and Canada from 1995.  Yep, same bushtec that I had on the Softail but it's gone replaced by my first Ultra (95).  Also had to clean off all that aqua pinstriping that matched the Softail... ;D
That trip was 6,900 miles over two weeks....K'ville to SD, Montana, Alberta, BC and all parts in between....what a ride.

Post by: ultrarider123 on December 03, 2013, 10:34:50 AM
I've posted the bikes loaded pics of our trip to SD this year in another thread so no need to re-post.  I did find another that I have to post.  The black '89 in front is my old bike.  The original owner is the guy on the right (Steve).  Sold it to me with 30,000 miles.  I sold it to Doug (guy in the middle) with 70,000 miles and in this picture, it was pushing 80,000.  BEST riding/handling touring bike I've ever had.  This picture was taken with the bikes "loaded" as we proceed to Keystone with a stop at the Badlands.  Can't see the back of my softail but trust me, it was loaded down.

Ah the memories these old pictures bring back (some not so good, too).  Thanks for all those that shared so far...have really enjoyed this thread.

Grand Staircase-Escalante.  On the way to Sturgis.

Hey, isn't that the beautiful trailer (from page 6) that just went up for sale?

She's a beaut.  I had a American Legend trailer for years and loved it... Now the wife rides her own Ultra so no need for it and sold it back in 2006.  Wonderful trailer.  Good luck!

I've made two regional trips on my new CVO Softail Deluxe, but really like the local rides when I can strip it down. This is a picture my wife took on Thanksgiving Day in Texas. She's also my passenger; but you can tell I configured the bike for a "me" ride this time! She's a pro behind the lens, but I love riding with her as well. When I got the bike, she got a full set of leathers.

Here's another way to carry more stuff. Invite your friend from Hawaii to Sturgis, trailer two bikes there, and then make him carry a bunch of our stuff!  Travelled from Sturgis to Cody, Yellowstone, Tetons, Jackson and back to Sturgis like this. The bonus for him was that he ended up with a nice driver's backrest while we got to carry more stuff. :2vrolijk_20:

Hey Grizzly I really really like those fenders on that trailer!!
Title: Re: Photo of your bike locked and loaded
Post by: Grizzly on December 29, 2013, 10:00:27 AM
Thanks T-Roy.

That's just the way it came stock from American Legend Trailers.

It was a great trailer and not only do the fenders match the bike's fenders, the entire trailer (including the lid) is shaped like the saddlebags.  It also pulled like a dream!

I'm sure I would still be pulling it today, if the wife hadn't started to ride her own Ultra... Lots of space for trips now, so I'm not complaining.

I actually ended up selling it after 4 years of use for more than I paid... Unfortunately I can't say that about the bike pulling it!

Al, the rip is for a reason....there was a head there at one time.

Nope, no itch with the wind/beards.  I've had a beard ever since I got out of nuclear power plants (moved to ORNL in 1991 and didn't have to wear the respirators as much) so my face was pretty much used to it.  That beard covers up a lot of ugly.... :huepfenlol2:

As for listing the do's and don'ts of travel....mainly, I've learned to take what you need, not what you think you will need.  There is a Wal-Mart/Harley/Target/Walgreen store everywhere now days so if you forget something, no worries.  
I save my old socks/underwear/jeans for my long trips now days.  Instead of packing dirty items, I trash the used items daily (socks/underwear) since those were ready for the trash anyway.  Saves washing as often (or ever) plus frees up room for items along the way.  If there are lots of "purchases" on a long trip, before heading home I box them up (and whatever dirty clothes we do have...Vickie refuses to use my "trashing the underwear'" method...) and send them home via UPS/Fed-EX.
This last long trip, I purchased some plain, cheap (5 for $5) t-shirts for the long riding days and trashed them after each riding day along with the other items.  Worked great and I only had to pack a couple good shirts for the rally days....will do that again... :2vrolijk_21:
May or may not work for you....just some knowledge from the road that works great for me..... ;D

thanks. 400 miles a day was an easy day. on this trip we spent 6 of the days at Sturgis averaging about 150 to 200 a day. the rest of the miles were put on in the remaining 9 days. luckily my BSR loves to ride as much as I do. on this trip we logged enough miles one day to get into the Iron butt club riding a grand total of 1062 in 18 hours. we are planning a trip up PCH1 this summer and will go from Houston to LA in 2 days (1560miles) before we slow down to enjoy the coast ride to Canada. it's gonna be a fun 2 weeks!!!

Dude's thread on his trip out west triggered another group of photos I would love to see gathered in one place so this is the launch of the "Photo of your bike locked and loaded" thread.

Simple rules (that I am sure will be stretched, abused, worked around, and outright ignored).

Post a photo of your bike loaded up and ready for the journey to ... you name the destination. Doesn't have to be just the bike, people can be in the photo as well. So can pets, small rodents, even alien life forms if they are coming along for the journey and you needed to pack for them.

Photos of touring rigs are acceptable as well. Bikes with trailers, sidecars, trikes, non HD bikes, just no cages please.

No cute photos of the population of China stacked on to a Vespa along with 40 crates of live chickens please. No photos of vagrants on bicycles touring Western Zcblkistan. However, if you loaded up your BMW or KTM off road touring machine for the Dakar Rally and you want to post a photo of that, I'd love to see it.

Starting this thread with the photo "The Dude" posted of his secretly purchased CVO prior to take-off to the Tahoe CVO family gathering.
