So been thinking its time, This time however going about it a little different.
As Many of you know the biggest challenge I have experienced is Lodging.
The reason is not what you may be thinking?
Most everyone thinks The Blog and the Idea is really cool:) BUT, when you arrive at a Hotel after like 3pm the Person with the ability to make a decision on providing a room has typically gone home for the day.
So I get a lot of come back in the morning and talk to the Decision maker:)
Well I have been looking into towing a trailer.
Have looked at many options.
My first choice( pic below)
Ok just kidding, leaving this one at home lol
Actually a tent trailer designed to tow with a bike ( pic below)
This particular one belongs to a friend of mine, he let me tow it around to decide if it would work.
I have very comfortably towed this exact style with my Harley, However I will be on a Shadow 750.
After I towed it about 20 miles I decided it would be " ok " not perfect but "ok"
I had a lead on trading for one, but it did not work out.
So then the box idea ( pic below)
This one belongs to another friend, Way lighter will haul lots of stuff, easy to tow..
After towing it I have decided light is the way to go..
Problem: still now sleeping arraignment.. Cant pitch a tent on walmart parking lot..
They will alow tent trailers however.
You can also see in the above pic I have built a hitch for the bike, Its not complete by any means, but totally functional:)
So The final trailer is going to be a flatbed, (Pic below)
I will add a 2 foot front to this trailer, it will fold flat to provide a 6.1 flat surface for sleeping.
I will then put a tent over the top of it, thus a "tent" trailer lol
So now I will have the ability to pull over and sleep when the sun starts to go down..
No more riding all night!!
Some of the other things im going to focus on is more detail for example where I am and what im doing, It will actually be more fun this way, stop and smell the roses so to speak..
When your on the Bike 10,12,14+ hours a day its sometime challenging to slow down and chat with the people providing the ability to make this idea work.
So im going to slow down a bit:)
Slowing down will aslo alow time for better posting on the blog, getting everything on the blog instead of having dosens of pics that would be totally out of order if posted now. lol
The Bike will also be getting a few upgrades.. Highway pegs for sure, cant believe I waited till now to install them..
Of coarse the hitch and wiring is all being added..
Now for the biggest Change....
Taking a girl with me. (pic below)
She likes to ride, will be figuring out the safest way for her to be a passenger, she really likes setting on the tank.. But we will have to do a little more thinking on that one..
Oh, her name is Little Bit :)
So I obviously have some work to get done, My thinking is hit the road in the next several days.
Keep the Rubber side down and always be safe:)
