I KNEW I bought an enclosed trailer for a reason!!

For the two to four times I have ever had one of my bikes on a trailer in over forty five years its not very important for me to own a trailer, and if very infrequently  I need one I borrow a friends. The trailer is high enough in front so we do not get any debris hitting the fairing or windshield.

Also washing a bike throughly, allows you to give it an up close inspection of all of the the drive components (suspenison, brakes, etc) and any loose or missing nut and bolts.

This was not meant to become a discussion of, to trailer or not to trailer, I know their are times when bikes might have to become "trailer queens" in emergencies, breakdowns  and transport in snowy and icy conditions.

Wow!!! If it hadn't been for the cold I doubt you would have gotten the bike dirtier by just riding it. Good job on getting it cleaned up.

Brian (103tHunDer) don't look at this you're liable to go into shock. :nervous: :shocked2: :huepfenlol2:

Fired00d,

If the temperatures would have been constant through the 3 states and the 1 province say in the 32  deg f range I wouuld have drove it home, wet snow within reason and rain do not bother me, it is the ice on the roads especially in the shadows that pucker me up a bit.

The average temperature those two days was minus 26 deg C or approx. 0 degs F.

THAT's why I bought a trailer. Leaving for Daytona in February, riding the bike, with the wife on the back, 15 degrees and snowing AIN'T gonna happen. I'd rather trailer to Daytona than to stay home. By February, I'll be itching to get some riding in.

Can't blame you for that ice and two wheels is nothing to be playing with.

I think he said that in his 45 years of riding he's had to borrow one a couple of times. :nixweiss:  There are trailers out west here, just not many that are motorcycle trailers that'll haul a bagger............mostly used for dirt bikes.  Out here, we ride.......come on out Brian. :2vrolijk_21:

Amen! My idea of good riding ain't on a expressway in the rain with truck after truck kicking up shower after shower. My bike rides just fine all snug in the trailer. :2vrolijk_21:

Enclosed trailers are great when you travel in bad weather, but IF the tie downs become loose your
bike can get trashed and you will never know it till you stop and look inside. Give me an open trailer
any day.               BTW my bike has not ever been trailered yet. But I know that day is coming.


                                                                   MARK



         MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

Yep, enclosed trailers are $$$ well spent! ;)

Had a couple of open trailers for the snowmobiles in the 80's..  After arriving at the destination with them looking like the SEEG, it didn't take long to go enclosed.

That is why you spend the bucks and get a good wheel chock (www.wheeldoc.com).  I haul my bikes in the back of my toyhauler and never have to worry about them now with the wheeldoc chock. :2vrolijk_21:

I use a set of Condor Chocks which I bought off of this website, I forgot who sold to me. They are great especially for holding the bike upright when you are by yorself.

Just hauled four bikes down to Phoenix, two in the back of the F350 Pick Up and two on the "open trailer" no problems at all. Right now am in Mesquite, Nevada, having left Phoenix at 3:00.

Everybody MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR.
