    road trip

    I have always wanted to go the American Heritage Motorcycle museum during vintage motorcycles and since I can't make it this year I am planning it for next year, here's my dilemma. I have a 1949 Indian Arrow I want to bring out there with me, but I have no urge to go there on four wheels. I am looking for information on two things; first is do they make a trailer hitch setup for a 2002 R1150RT, and second is there someone out there who makes a small lightweight motorcycle trailer for my motorcycle? I have seen Goldwings towing a dirtbike and my little single cylinder Indian doesn't weigh any more so it should be possible. Should look pretty cool going down the road too. Any help would be appreciated. John Broj

    You might consider a Kendon single rail trailer, stands up out of the way when not in use, takes up very little space. They tow well and can be found used for less than a grand . You tow bike should have no trouble with it.

    Or you could try a Trailer in a Bag. A knock down affair if you have no real place to store it when not in use.

    I had a Kendon for a while and liked it , but I am short and had trouble loading my bike by myself. So now i am looking for a trailer with a ramp.

    Welcome to the forum John. You have kind of an Oilhead, Trailer, Gear kind of post. I'll try to keep an eye on it for you and if need be-move it to one of the other parts of the forum for you. Good luck, Gary

    This is what I would use if I was going to haul a bike with a bike. I have to believe it's about the lightest trailer out there, and you're going to want to do whatever you can to keep total weight down.

    You know, I have an RT and a DR650..... Hmmmm.......

    Post up pics of whatever you end up with - this is interesting to me....
