    Bike.jpg The only way to trailer thrash. Spring is here and summer is on the way. Bringing our bike so we can ride whenever we are sittin. Also helps get around when we need a WalMart

    I have ramps, so i take her off and reload after if i have to drop the neck. I take loads that fit on the room i have behind her. Nice part of owning the truck and trailer. Also helps having an awesome boss who works with us that haul our bikes

    Yeah, that would be nice to be able to take our bikes. My 2005 Heritage Softail Classic is a little bigger than that, though. If I could take my bike with me, my wife would NEVER see me again. :)

    Yeah, I've seen an attached Motorcycle Garage on the back of a cab that has a retractable mount the bike gets on and then is lifted into the garage part. :) I'll see if I can find it again. I found one, but not the one I wanted...and I also found there was another in these forums that was mounted sideways where the fuel tank was, but I don't think that's wise..but eh?..Here is a pic with the link to the site it's at:

    This is a "medium duty" truck the site says, that this one is loaded on.
    Site: Motorcycle Loader

    Here''s another closer to what I saw.

    It's called LoadAll: River's LoadAll Semi Truck Rig
    Still looking. :)

    Here's another:

    The only way is to have it enclosed like in some of those pictures above. Just having it on the deck you will find out really quickly that the bike will be trashed by road debris and drive components will start rusting from constantly being out in the rain. I trashed my $1500 freeride bicycle like this couple years ago, wouldn’t try with a motorcycle.

    True, but they do make covers for them, and the frame is solid underneath so it won't get at the bike from underneath. Still, the enclosed is the nicer option. :)
