They're all busy doin' somethin' or other. I'm still sitting here with my arm in a cast. I did manage to get the proper shade of blue for my new one, though

All of these yahoos along with about 100 other like minded dual sporters will be converging on the mountainous terrain of South East Oklahoma come October 15-18th. Everybody is welcome.

Accused and convicted are two different things.

Seriously though, I've been around, just been watching the thread take on a life of its own. Pretty amazing....

We've got a three day/two night ride in the the works here
for Oct. 24th, 25th and 26th down in the coastal Santa Lucia
mountains above Big Sur.

So far it looks like I'm the red headed stepchild on my little WRR,
- everytbody else is going to be riding 640cc's and up.

This is going to be sooo much fun! There's places I can get
into and out of easily down there where the others are
just going to have to sit and watch.

Don't lose it off that hitch! I almost lost my XL600R off the back of a hitch. 1 tie down popped. Luckily it was the outside one. The inside one held. I run with 4 tie downs now all the time....

It's the Ultimate MX Hauler----was that what you were using?

Heck, I use six tiedowns on my hitch hauler - better safe than sorry.

You don't want to be looking in your rear view mirror a couple
of hundred miles away from home doing 65 MPH and see
your bike cartwheeling end over end through the traffic
behind you.

What I've seen happen with hitch haulers is you hit a bump
and there's not enough tension holding the back of the bike
onto the hitch hauler. Rear wheel bounces up and off and
the bike's getting dragged on the pavement behind the vehicle.

A heavy duty velcro strap through the rear wheel does a surprisingly good job of keeping that sucker planted...

Ultimate MX Hauler doesn't work like that---it's locked down at the footpegs.

I have used one of these for years and it works like a champ.

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...233&hasJS=true

I use a strap like safety chains securing the hauler to the vehicle. One tiedown on each side of the handlebar and a bungee on each tire does the trick.

Then I strap a gas can to the rack/bike to keep the smell out of the SUV.

Sleeping in the SUV makes overnight rides a piece of cake.
