Thanks, good ideas.

The kayak trailer looks like a good idea. Might try to build myself.
Towing the trials bike looks awesome !
Did you build the hitch mount yourself or by it ?
Any close up pics of the hitch?
Thanks !

No not my set up... wish it was though but only with my XC instead of the trials bike. Found this pic on the net some time ago and saved for future reference I'm sure it's all custom made though.....

Not yet I have one I pulled with the KLR just need to stop ridding the 990 long enough to fab up a hitch .
I prefer to hang a receiver hitch off the sub frame though .
