Can you tell I have cabin fever, creating posts like this?
Now here's an item we actually do plan to purchase before the summer is out, good Lord willing:
It's a cargo trailer that pulls behind a motorcycle. We'd like to have it for several reasons:
1. It would give us a place to stash our leathers when we need to remove them, either because of heat or to go inside someplace. Ditto on helmets; we plan to buy some pretty expensive helmets one of these days, and then we won't want to leave them just hanging off the handlebars like we do now.
2. If we end up going to Colorado on the bike, there'll be plenty of room for our stuff. There is a lot of storage space on our bike, but once you stash the leathers, most of it is occupied.
3. We could take the Gold Wing when we go to the grocery store. We already do this a lot, but only when we're not getting many groceries.
Anyhow, this is the cargo trailer we'll get, only in white to match the bike. It's made by Aluma, and is about half the price of the plastic-looking fiberglass ones we've looked at. And Cliff prefers its looks.
It's manufactured in Iowa, and there are lots of dealers not far from us.
