Sweet! Love the red stripe on the wheel.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Looks good Smilee... Couple quesitons:

How much did the trailer cost ya
What size tires are those
Did you install a swivel on the trailer side of the hitch and if so how does it pull.

Be safe out there

Looks trick. Matches right up. Is it my imagination or is the tongue on the trailer a couple feet longer than usual?

That is sweet! The red wheels really tie it all together.
Like the luggage rack on top also - additional space to pack. Good idea.

Please post how your bike handled withe the trailer!

You know the tongue does look a little long but I bet if it had the standard ice chest plate in front of the box it wouldnt appear as long. From what I seen on trailers 7 feet was about the normal. I forgot to comment on the paint scheme... Looks great!!!
I know I have read alot of pro/con on the trailer swivel but knowing how well our bikes lean in the twisties it seems like a good idea to have. Keep us posted Smilee
