Lessee....380 miles to Cynthiana from here along the Big Muddy. This Bug-Eyed little 30 will run approximately 14 miles per hour ....I may need a calculator to figure out when to leave to get there in time. Whadayathink....

Checklist: 1: motorcycle for me and MrsMassey.... 2: another motorcycle for my son and daughter in law...jack for a flat, money for food...oh yeah, a big toolbox for the Harley !!!!

I posted a few shots of this trailer I built out of scrap iron from a huge air handler trapeze we tore out 2 or 3 years ago on the old forum. I had to hurry up quick and make a dual front wheel chock that is adjustable for fat bikes or skinny bikes, plus easy to remove to use the trailer as a utility.

I used some scrap 6" channel, 3/4" allthread rod and 2 1/2 x 1/4 angle from the trash hopper. Its adjustable as described and is removed by taking out (3) 3/4" bolts...all in one piece. Seems to work good. SO GUYS....when should I leave to get there in time ?????

Might need angel gear on the down-hill runs

You use Georgia Overdrive when going down hill. (Georgia Overdrive is when you kick it out of gear at the top of the hill) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I noticed MrsHarris has confidence in the little old 30...we're not gonna be late Betty. (Of course we might be pulling the trailer with the rotten old Dodge though).

I'll try to figure out a way to sent part of the wind from out here to use as a tail wind both ways. We are having plenty of that to spare :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
