Just remove them and flip them over. You are going to love that trailer...
We stood here in the shop and debated which way to put them on.

Maybe when I flip them over my Pelican 1430's will fit like I wanted; as it is now, there's not enough room for them.

Thank's for the heads up.

I think they're a little too big, I'm going to look for something else; small ammo can maybe.

The Mule leaves for Vermont tomorrow morning.

Any word yet on if one can be fitted to a 2012 Yamaha Super Ténéré?

I'm ready to pull the trigger on one of these incredible trailers if I know there is a mount for a Super Ten!!!

Thanks!

Yikes! Not my business, but as a fellow super ten pilot, all I can say is, how much gear do you need to haul?? That bike could carry all the supplies for a six man expedition by itself!

Mr. Bracket, do you/will you sell the adapters for a 950 Adventure separately?

I'm designing my own trailer but would like to see how you attach it to the Adventures and if I could purchase those.

Thanks

Laugh Survived another Cromag

The 3rd Cromag rally I attended was a blast, again (thanks Shrineclown)! The Mule performed perfectly. Caught some air & laughed 'cuz I felt the 3rd wheel hit. Made a few dents but the Action Packer smothed back out again. Sometimes I'd see the box deformed vs the lid but it would reseal once righted. Will replace with a Hardigg (thanks Canuman).

Mule was clean when I started then happily covered in water/mud & gear stayed dry. Thought I'd take the easy way back home but then couldn't resist the call of the dirt - hammered it & 2 cans of Heady Topper ruptured 'cuz I forgot I packed for the easy way home.

It was all epic! Thanks Mike!!
Here's some vid:

Laconic, maybe see you at Micatech or Recompence. Shrineclown said you were at Cromag.

Ha! I didn't ever lay eyes on you or hear there was another Mule there. (I was on the road by the time you posted your departure or I would have tried to find you).

I put about 2400 miles on mine, much of it at highway speeds. Guys riding behind me said it tracks perfectly behind the bike and is stable as a rock. It tows at 85 as well as it does at lower speeds. It took until about half-way home before I quit looking behind me to see if it was still there.

But it can't haul the specialized equipment I need to carry to certain specific events.

But always a pleasure to meet someone who knows what I need better than I do...

Thanks!

MrBracket,

I've been pleased with the Mule so far.

I might add another, more dirt oriented bike to my garage in the near future.

My Mule was built for a DL 650.

If I remove the two adapter brackets from the hitch, what bikes will the Mule fit?

DR 650? DRz 400?

This may have been answered already but what do you have to do to liscence a small trailer like this. Is it like a sidecar and considered part of the bike since there is no hitch?

Looks like you had some FUN on the Santiam Wagon Rd,
out there by Mt Washington.

How'd the trailer handle those sandy whoops?

Yes, if you remove the DL650 adapter and get a new skewer and bushings from me, your trailer can fit many different bikes. Just let me know the bike you end up getting and I can set you up with the parts you need.

This depends on where you live. So far, I only know of one customer that has licensed his trailer and he did only because he wanted to. The important thing is not to block the view of your license plate and lights on the bike itself.
For added safety, I do offer a lighting kit that you can wire into your bikes tail lights.
