Coolest motorcycle trailer... EVER!!!

People who know motorcycles are aware that big bikes like Honda's Gold Wing have power to spare, and can pull small trailers with no problem. You will often see long-distance touring riders hauling these rigs, sometimes with small pop-up campers as part of the trailers.

Well, last week I was coming back from a coffee break with the Mirage dudes, and as we were crossing King Street heading back to the studio, we saw this amazing Gold Wing/trailer rig stopped at the lights. I was able to whip out my digital camera and snap a couple of shots before the bike took off.





In my opinion, this is without a doubt the coolest motorcycle trailer I've ever seen, both in conception and in execution. -- PL

The only thing that could have possibly topped that was if there was a giant fiberglass Rat Fink dude coming out of that little car.

I myself am an enthusist of all things with 4 wheels :-)

That having been said, in the spirit of this topic, THIS trailer design blew my mind! Thought I'd share.

I saw one similar to that a few years back. At first I thought the little car was some sort of go-kart before realizing it was a trailer.

Very neat indeed.

Do you still use the Segway? Don't recall hearing about it in a while.

Ever since I discovered recumbent (and then crank-forward) bicycles, the Segways have fallen by the wayside. I don't even know if I still have one that works. -- PL
