Heck yeah! Great group of people on this site, just watch out for HayDutchess as she is known to make bikes break with no explanation. I've been lucky not to have ridden with her.

My newest farkle!

Look at these two lovely bikes - my DR and my "princess" road bicycle.
I rode out to Indian tonight, parked my DR and then rode my bicycle out to Bird Point. Fun fun fun - and I stayed dry!!



The guys at work worry about my safety (and sanity ) and they gave me a whole roll of pink tape to use to increase my visibility. How thoughtful! They get a kick out of me and wonder what the heck I'll do next... I'm looking forward to trying this system out on a dirt road and go camping with my DR and mountain bike.

Hey, I'm starting to get a complex. It's not MY fault people have problems with their motorcycles. Where do you live? I'll come ride around your house a few times to see what happens to your house and motor vehicle.

Nice rack! Never seen that done before, but we've talked of a ski rack on a motorcycle.

If yer bike is so dependable... why do you need to carry alternative transportation with ya?

I could have benefited from a similar set of detachable training wheels for my DR on a couple of occasions!

I agree, Duchess. You've got a beautiful rack.


I can't really see how that bike attaches but if it's putting much stress on the bicycle's front forks be careful. You could get a lifetime of metal fatigue fairly quickly on a few stretches of speedy potholes on a motorcycle.
