New Wee Farkle - a Bicycle

Just picked up a new farkle the other day. Since I love riding 2 wheelers - it seems only fitting to use one to haul the other!

At least you wont be stranded in the event of a flat tire. Most people just carry a repair kit.

so you got rear ended by a speeding cyclist and kept the bike?

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

2007 DL650 (love it)
1983 BMW R100RS (20 years and 100,000k)
1983 Honda XL185S (chases sheep around the farm)
2007 Yamaha YF400 (feeds the sheep, pulls trailers, great up river beds)
1985 Yamaha YB50 (crossed the Southern Alps on that one)
1972 Velosolex S3800 (a blonde moment, please excuse me)
1975 Honda C50 (the original step thru)
1963 Yamaha YG1

And gone are: Raleigh Runabout (x 2), Yamaha FS1E, Honda CD175, MZ Trophy, Suzuki SP370, Yamaha RD 350, Suzuki GT 750, Triumph 5TA, BSA B40, Honda 400/4, James Cadet, Honda XL 185 (but bought another one), Suzuki YF500?, Honda S90 (which I wish wish wish I still had) and a few more which the grey matter won't release at the present.

When I was a boy my parents said 'you are NOT having a motorcycle'. So I had lots.

I need to get something rigged up for next year. I plan on doing a lot of riding and some racing and without a car this is a must.

I really would like a trailer that I can mount the bike but the trailer I like is about $800.
