Looking for bike trailer - borrow or buy

Discussion in 'Australian Motorcycles' started by Baron Von Rotter, Jun 20, 2004.

  1. I need a bike trailer big enough to carry a ZZR1200. Doesnt have to be a
    flash enclosed jobby, in fact would prefer a 7X4 or something so I can
    use it for shovelling shit etc etc.

    Havent got a towball on the battle wagon yet, so need to get that. But
    would like to be able to tow the bike to Sydney from 23 Jul 04.

    Potential sellers if your willing to loan it for a case of beer until
    after 23 Jul 04 that would really help.

    Otherwise if someone is willing to loan me one for the trip 23 Jul - 3
    Aug 04 i would greatly appreciate and offer many burnt sacrifices.

    Oh and if it has a small cage for carrying weasels that would help to. :p

    Im in melbourne

    Which brings me to the next question : any recommended tow ball
    installation places? Bear in mind its an audi.

    When I moved from Syd to here, I bought a new trailer. 7x4 high sides with
    rego for about $700 new. Thing paid for itself just on that trip. Go by
    yourself a new one.

    (You could borrow mine, but it'll cost you about $700 return to come collect
    it)

    When my brother went touring in his van, he fitted a tow-ball on the _front_
    of his car as well as on the back. Makes parking in confined spaces much
    easier. Put van near where he wanted it, unhook car, turn car around, hook
    van to front of car, drive it in.

  8. Yes, Theo. I'm sure your brother's van is similar to an Audi.

    Seen 4WDs do this. They then hook up rigid links between vehicles to get
    them through the tougher spots.

    Of course, the greenies ask why they go into places where they have to
    turn 10 4WDs into one 40 WD articulated vehicle.....

  11. Greenies ask? Common sense asks why are they trying to do it, oh, silly me
    the challenge. You need to take that fridge, TV portable spa, sink, etc
    etc, when a backpack would suffice. Oh yeah, need to take the dog and kids,
    the camp oven (even that is v. suss).

    I'd have no problems with people who use the bush, look after it. That is a
    real hard concept for them.
