    Spend the 500 or so for a used utility trailer.

    Brendan,

    No way would I trust one of those things. Too much tongue load (I'll save you guys the time - 'that's what she said'), so wobbly, just fucking SCARY looking to see your bike like that.

    Do what I did. Grab a normal flat cheapo trailer, use pressure treated wood for the bed and sides, build your own ramps, grab a detachable wheelchock. I drilled holes in the steel frame and used big beefy eyebolts in the four corners for tiedown spots. For the ramps, I used 2x8's, hooked them to the trailer using those hook-and-eye latch things, put some stairway grip on the one that I walk up. For storage, I made a hole in each side of the trailer's side board and used a nut and bolt to hold them in place (in the second pic you can see the bolt coming through one side, in the third pic you can see the other one's head and washer on the outside of the trailer). What's better, the wheel chock clicks out in in about 2 seconds, so the trailer can still be used easily (I use it a lot for dump runs, home depot runs, etc)


    Note that this setup has not only survived three track days without a scratch, but also survived the whole trip to Nova Scotia during this past summer (drive up to maine, go on the ferry, all over the island (without the bike for that part, obviously), trip back. Looks good as new.. I can't forsee any problems with it.
