Actually, I thought the crucial first step was the Suzuki Dealer teaching you how to operate your brand-new GSXR1000; "Brakes and Gas on the right, Clutch and Shift on the left, nowget out there and Give 'Er Hell........"
Excellent Review Gabe. Just what I want for Christmas. I hate conning the wife to follow me down to the dealership whenever I need to get maintenance. She is always grumpy about it and *****es about how much tires and valve adjustments cost. Plus I plan to do some track time just to tune up before the big race with longride.
While it may be handier and sturdier, this trailer comes in second in the KPPI rating behind the $200 Harbor Freight model. It will be purchased only by GPTB'ers who have money to burn from the profits they're getting from their Halliburton buddies from the post-election $4-per-gallon gas. The Grating Monomaniacal Pedant predicts that he will buy a trailer to take his Triumph Buell Choco-Thunder 675 to Freddie Spencer Track School just as soon as the dinette set is paid off.
there are also cases where your motorcycle quits on you and you don't happen to be self-taught mechanic so you need to take it in. Every scratch, ding and bit of broken plastic on my KLR 650 has occurred at just such times, in trying to keep it secured to this carrier that mounts crosswise just out from the trailer hitch. And if you get it secured, theres the issue of compressing the suspension too much, in which case, when you loosen one strap, its liable to spring up and do a little flip before landing on the asphalt.
