I saw this trailer in a bag thing but the price is ridic

I came across that too.  That's why I went with a used Kendon instead; still cheaper and waaaay better.  And it holds two bikes.

Don't get the connect but the regular bigger one.  You can pick them up used for a pretty good deal.  There was an article about them on Motorcyclist not too long ago.  Great moto hauler:

the issue with the V-strom in a transit connect is height - darn thing just won't fit unless you take off a bunch of accessories and compress the forks

makes it harder to steal, but best suited on a trailer, then an open truck bed

we will see...I may just keep my 2001 Ford F-150 and watch it run another 100,000 miles


Just get the bigger transit van; then you can just put your bike in the van or use a hitch carrier since the tongue weight should be high enough on those.


This also talks about securing the front wheel though.

One other option would be a hitch carrier as long as your vehicle has a tongue weight that can support it.  I use one for my minibike.

Maybe this is what you are looking for...


The vast majority of riders go too fast splitting lanes.  It's really easy to get sucked into it; I do it as well on occasion and have to remind myself to slow down.


I looked into something compact as well since I don't have the space to store a trailer.  I couldn't really find anything decent that I would trust, so picked up a used Kendon.  Folds up and I can store it upright on the side of the house.  I'm putting some upgraded casters on it over the weekend, so it rolls around even easier.

Bought for my R6 but ended up going with 190/55 instead.  $130.


Did ya pick them up?

Yes... tomorrow’s actually better (Wifeys off). Can you come out for a quick 5  pretty much anytime during work hrs or must it be done during lunch break?
pretty much. Txt me when you can come buy and ill check my schedule. I have a few meetings but mostly open

I should be there between 9-10am but I’ll also text you with my eta. Btw, Thanks.


RIP Annette.  Too soon :(

First come first served :)  Venom you coming to get em? Not sure about miles.  I'm around HB tomorrow after 4 or in Irvine Monday

I'll be home tomorrow PM; I'm in HB.  I'll check in if you still have 'em :)


Still have 'em?  I'd take the front, rear is too small.  How many miles you have on it?


Well, let me know if the process speeds up :D

Got it. Cargo van definitely is more useful if you plan to get serious about this sport. Or a truck like BD. Van is easier to load a bike on.
  And more secure, and more comfortable to sleep in....

Does that mean you're selling your Kendon :D ?  I'm looking for one now.


LOL  I never rode stoned or drunk.  Most I ever had was one beer when riding but I don't do that anymore either because then I have to pull over to pee  :32:  And I certainly wouldn't do it when commuting; the days of having a beer at 7am are long over LOL!!

Kids definitely don't make it any easier.  If it weren't for commuting, pretty much all my riding would be track only and that's not all that frequent.

Dang brotha!  Barely broken in; take her to the track; plenty of riding friends to be made there :D

Nice bike; GLWS!!

Sounds good. Thanks all for the suggestions. I started high due to the craigslist/low ball effect. Probly better to drop closer to what i expect/will accept.

I would also post the bikes on  That's where I ended up selling mine; more likely to find an enthusiast.


It honestly depends on how much patience you have.  I ended up selling my '08 675 SE for $5k and it had 49k mi on it.  Granted a lot of stuff was fixed/replaced but I found someone who really wanted a clean '08 SE (black/gold). 

I'm also not a huge Duc fan.  Might as well get an RSV4 then; much better value and slightly used ones are cheap.


Nice!  While I wasn't in love with that bike on the street, I absolutely loved it on track; so incredibly easy to ride fast!

I think the red bike will sell quicker.  People will see lower price, lower miles, no damage. 

Ya I'm looking at S1000RR.

Prices on bikes are OBO so if someone has suggestions for price feel free to offer or PM me.  I won't be offended :D
