I'm building the trailer because he isn't selling right now and I like to tinker, but the f800GS isn't really trailer friendly as far as mounting options go. if I had a mill I could make my own from a billet of aluminum, but I don't. anyone in central Texas have a mill and some free time to tinker?

FWIW: If you haven't talked to him in a while, he called me today and just finished my new hitch today so I think he's setup at his new location and running.

Edit: Just to be clear, I was referring to Juan at Third Wheel Trailers(the pic I posted).

Hey everyone, I posted up an update on my facebook page. The shop I'm moving into isn't quite ready yet, so I have time to build one or two more trailers before moving. Send me an email if you'd like to have one right away.

I might be insane, but who isn't?

I've got a 2012 Triumph Daytona and I'm looking to get one of these so I can haul gear to the track (selling my tow vehicle right now). Would love to have this for long trips as well.

Would this be mountable on something what wasn't a dual-sport? Any possibility of getting one of these before September or November even? There's a track weekend coming up and I would love to get one before then!

Thanks,

Dan

Rear tail section for reference:



I've got some frame sliders on there, I wonder if I could use those or something similar as the hook-up point?

FYI, I turned the order page back on on the website. I'll leave it on for a while until the new shop is done and ready to move into..

Thanks,
Mike

I'm intrigued by the dualsport trailer...Looks sweet. I can't decide between something like that, or an easily removable enduro sidecar like you can get from DMC ($$$).

Question - have you run in to any issues with lighting or licensing requirements? I know that my motor vehicle regs describes a trailer (more or less) as a "device with 2 or more wheels attached to the rear of a vehicle with a pivoting hitch.." So that tells me that a trailer with only one wheel isn't a trailer at all! lol.

Have you run in to any issues with this? I ask because if I had to have this trailer licensed, it would have to be inspected, and I'm just not sure if something with a motorcycle wheel and a unique hitch through a hollow axle would pass an inspection here. I do intend to speak with a few inspection places, and of course the DMV next time I'm in there.
