    Harley Ultra Classic with a rack

    I just finished this, it has a 1 1/4", reciever hitch, its not so hot on the freeway, but side roads its ok, fuel mileage can't be very good, still has to be better then my truck, I will take it to the closer trails..

    You'll need a much heavier bicycle back there if you're trying to get that big ole hog to wheelie (just a lil poke in the eye from a jap bike rider ) cool rack though

    That's...interesting. I have seen that kind of set up just once before in central Pennsylvania, and it had Canadian plates. I remember thinking, now there goes a pioneer.
    But it's too bad that it isn't better for highway because a motorcycle and a mountain bike package gets my mind thinking "ultimate adventure road trip".

    I plan on putting a narrowed Harbor Freight 12 inch tired trailer(it only weighs 90 lbs) back there to haul my bikes and sell the rack, I'll have to put a longer tounge on it to keep it stable, it'll be set up to hold 2 bikes, I'll post it when its finished.. it should handle on the freeway better then the rack..

    Don't those have a recomended top speed of something like 50 mph?
    I can't imagine what a blowout on something like that would do to your Harley as you are going 50+...

    I have those tires on my boat trailer and it has never been a problem, the trailer only weighs 90 lbs even loaded it will only be about 150 lbs,, the 12 inch tires run good without air as I have found out a few times with my boat and motor trailered, many people pull trailers behind big Harleys and Goldwings.. and alot heavier then that one.. it will pull much better then the rack, but I'll run slower then my usual 80 mph.. mybe 70mph any slower and I'll get run over in Michigan.. these people go at least 80 though the speed limit is 70mph...

    I know many people that use that trailer behind their motorcycles. One guy has a large cargo box on his that fits 2 sets of golf clubs. I could see it fitting 2 bikes with a skinny cargo box between them! Perfect for long range treks to MTB meccas. Dang, now I'm wishing I had a bigger bike...
