Is finally done...

(Well - I'll probably add some shelving at the front, and somewhere to hang up my tie downs...)

I was thinking about a hitch on the back - just gotta figure out how to mount it

I had it out yesterday, so no heat needed (I could have used some though...)


360 miles yesterday, and it was 18* when I left my house - went to Western MD for a Patriot Guard Mission...

Nice!  :up: If you want, I can get some pics or whatever you need as I have a 2" receiver hitch on the back of my 5'er. May give you a good start on making one for yours. On a side note, talked to a gentleman awhile back about a hitch on his Montana Big Sky to tow his small boat. Unfortunately his underneath is encapsulated so would have to rip out some of the plastic underbelly tarp type material, which he didn't want to do. Might want to crawl underneath and see if the frame rails are exposed/accessable.

Completely enclosed...

That's why I haven't measured for it yet

I'll need to pull about 30 screws to drop the belly plate in the back, then just find a way to tie in to the rear frame

Off hand mine is basically a 3x3 square stock with 1/4" plate on each end. This stretches from frame rail to frame rail. It is then welded and bolted to the rail. The receiver is welded to the center and just long enough to clear the rear cap. The guy that installed it said it would work for a small boat/utility trailer around 2000lbs and around 500lbs hitch weight. If I wanted a heavier trailer or heavier tongue capacity he suggested a second cross member and weld bracing between the two. (these are guesstimate numbers as it is homemade). I have had the boat on the back loaded with bikes, firewood, etc and was probably pretty close to these weights with no issues whatsoever.

If you remove/readjust that belly cover make sure it is sealed good. That keeps all the moisture from getting to the underneath of the floor.

Remember when you are riding you are creating a wind chill factor on top of what ever is blowing!  Hypothermia is a real concern on bikes! 





Please be careful and take care of yourself Tom!  I understand why your riding for these at this time and I am humbled to know you dear friend.  But we don't need of first DOF funeral!

Thanks for the concern Jo

You gotta love layers, fleece and leather!   :punk:

Only thing that got cold was my feet - got some "foot warmers" and all was good!

Kool Tom.  I see you decided to get a trailer for that thing.

I really like mine.  I find that it is not only good for transporting the bike.  But, it  also doubles as a dry secure place for storage in the off season.

Hey Tom, is that front wheel chalk from Harbor freight? If it is, you might want to look at some reviews. I know personally of two failures of that particular model. The tube piece that wraps around is very thin and is prone to breakage with larger heavy bikes. Both of these failures that I am aware of happened with goldwings.
Just a heads up, I can't tell from the picture what brand it is but it sure looks like the harbor freight one.

Yes, it is...

I looked at a bunch of reviews - didn't see anything negative.   :banging:

Do you know if the failures were while they were pulling into the chock, or when moving?
