Nice setup on your bike on bike rack. I have looked at doing the same thing with the same style Yakima mount on my bike.

Also, thanks for posting the pic and name of Motorcycle Pedia Museum. When I get back up to NY state sometime, I'll have to check them out.

Cool2 My setup

This thread gives me ideas. Here's my setup. I dismantle my mountain bike into the bike bag and tie it down to the back of my Enfield. I get to take extra tools too this way. Its mounted on something called the Ladhaki Pannier - a heavy metal pannier that is quite famous among 'buleteers' going to the high altitude Ladakh area of India and other long trips. Quiet stable back there.

Here's a pic from the interwebs of a Ladakhi Pannier. Mine is a longer one.



Here's a pic from a 3000 km journey I did last year from the north to the south of India with my mountain bike.




Here's a video from a 700 km round trip to the Himalayas, just to give you an idea of how it rides. Kindly excuse the loud bollywood music and in your face close up of my face.





Cheers

I took some tips and ideas from many others in this thread, and I am satisfied with my design after a 20 mile shake down run with back roads twistes, some rough pavement and a speed test of 60mph.

The rack seemed stable, with a little bit of flex in the system, which is expected. I think it would be a little more balanced once I have my riding gear and hydration fluids in the opposite side case.

The only other option that I might try for longer rides to the trail head is making a foam block to mount the bottom bracket right to the Yakima rail...which should move some of the weight closer to the center of the bike by eliminating the rear tire. I will also have to devise a solution for mounting the rear tire on the passenger seat (maybe along with the front tire to take more weight off the rack)

See below for my process and end results:


needed longer bolts for the front clamp to make it around the passenger peg


test with the bike on to check clearances, i will need to rotate the handlebars


fabrication of bracket to hold rear of Yakima rack and front wheel


testing the clearances and location of holes for the yakima rack. i realized i will have to use the top case the anchor the bike and keep it from swinging around


all loaded up and ready to mount the front wheel


testing with the other bike just to be sure it works


all loaded up and ready for the test.



The test went well and none of the bolts or straps came loose. I think i will have to get used to the movement of the bicycle whenever the moto hits a bump. It seems to be stable at speed and in turns, I have not had any cross wind experience, but im sure it will be ok.
VERY interesting setup. I may steal some of those ideas for V 3.0. I built my rack with a view towards riding to and on the FOTP in Phoenix the day after Thanksgiving. Seeing that I live in the Northeast, that requires a slightly larger cargo capaicy. I *am* designing a system for my ex to carry a bike on her Honda ST11, I've got quite a few design elements from your system that I can see working on what I plan to build for her.

I've had this for years and always been solid. Great to be able to take my toys with me

Looks like its on an ST11 or 13.

Interesting. I'd like to see where the carrier frame attaches - the ST1100 has a weak rear subframe, the extra weight of a bouncing bicycle would not do it any favors.

yes i would have to agree. I must imagine he built (or some developed) flex in that system when it scrapes the pavement on turns he took a little too hot. A good idea if you have a trike or can-am...but I like to have the ability to lean a little when im taking my bicycle for a ride.

Does this count? I needed to have some place to pack my bicycle gear, and also some place to store my motorcycle gear while I was pedaling on the trails. It made the trips on curvy roads to the trails much more fun than hauling the bicycle in the truck.

I like it. Talk to us about the weight of the trailer and how it handles.

Lol. This pics never get old. The first time I saw a bike mounted on a motorcycle I thought I was imaging something that wasn't there.
