Hows that for luggage?

Went to WallyWorld today to do some shopping, got it loaded...even had a flat of eggs on top!
It was super windy going there, was getting blown all over the road. Coming home was sweet, the wind was behind me most of the time, was able to cruise at 70.
Took the pictures with the camera phone.
In the trailer was quite a bit of weight, I had a 30# bag of kitty litter on bottom, a few gals. of liquid, milks,liquid soaps,etc. plus all your regular grocery needs.

Don't have a car? Seems like a pita.

Suh-weet...I always appreciate it when something is done in a unique way - even if there is no way in hell I would do it that way.

Having previously lived in FL myself, I would assume you are doing this in part to make up for the lack of "exciting" roads down in the dangle, by artificially creating some collateral excitement?

Good on yah, man!

Interesting!

Did you make the Versys trailer hitch mount yourself?

Would you post some photos of your hitch, and explain a little about how you designed and built it? (or send me to a thread?)

Is there anything you would do different if you were to build another one?

The added weight to the rear of the bike may actually smooth out the stiff ride of the V.

That is pretty cool!! Just shows you can do just about anything with a V!! I will be surprised though when I see someone with a plow attached to it.

Well, the trailer empty weighs only 100#, I did build the hitch, it attaches in about 10-15 mins.
I am working on a plow kit for the northerners....just wait.
Yes the roads are pretty flat and straight here in Florida....this does help with pulling a trailer.
Its not recommended to load heavy loads for the V to pull.Just for safety. Common sense has to play a huge part in pulling any trailer in any vehicle.
I will see about getting pics of the hitch and explain why I built it like I did.
