Speaking of things I want...

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.

Nice!  My younger/nuttier inner voice is telling me it would be fun to sit up on the back, hold the cargo rack and go for a ride with you two! LOL!

Oh, I'm passing that web site on to hubby!  That would be the perfect solution to weekend camping on the bike.  Well, maybe not.  He'd have to learn to cut down on the number of items you 'have to have' when you go camping.  LOL

Looks like a handy thing to have. Hope you and Cliff can get it soon.

We have a dealer near here. I will check them out. We have thought of getting a trailor from northern tools. You have to put your own box on it. Some of those alum. truck tool boxes are prefect.
