  1. How Big a Trailer do You NEED?

    MC Trailer Board
    Trailer size. So, Tailwind trailers are 24 cubic feet. I have a PiggyBacker which probably has more room than I need-- if there is such a thing--at it is 15 cubic feet. The Third Wheel trailer is 5-6 feet. Same with the Unigo. The N-Line is 11 cubic feet. How big should a motorcycle...
  2. Oh, My Jangled Nerves!

    MC Trailer Board
    My little PiggyBacker is a fine trailer, but it jangles! I think it's those darned safety chains. Clang! Wang! Click! I can't stand it. (Oh, the bells, the BELLS!) Does anyone use safety wires? Safety ropes? Safety chain in a rubbery tube? Suggestions welcome to this serious (well, seriously...

  6. How Much Weight to Reduce Trailer Bounce?

    General MC Message Board
    I just bought a used, older Piggy Backer trailer--the kind with leaf springs. I want to take it for a ride, not a trip. How much weight should I throw in there to stabilize the ride and reduce bouncing when I'm just tootling around? I can throw a 45 pound plate in there. Suggestions on where to...
  7. You Didn't Win PowerBall. Now What?

    General MC Message Board
    I'm really mad now. I had big plans for MY MONEY. I was going to buy a new color matched Tailwind trailer, a Ducati Diavel with matching Uni-Go trailer and a Shadow bagger for the misses. Now what am I supposed to do? Well, maybe I'll just skip the extra bikes and buy a PiggyBacker trailer and...
  8. Are Most Trailer Bodies Made Backwards?

    MC Trailer Board
    I'm not an aeronautical engineer--although I did once stay at a Holiday Inn Express--but, the little I know about aerodynamics is that a tear drop is the most aerodynamic shape. It has a rounded front and a tapered back. We can simulate a long tapered teardrop back and trick the air by having...
  9. Do People Ever RENT Trailers?

    MC Trailer Board
    I've never ridden with a trailer before. Does anyone or anyPLACE rent trailers to Wingers? I'm especially interested in locations close to Charlotte, North Carolina. Thanks.
