carring golf clubs

Postby f105d » Wed Apr 11, 2012 7:22 am



without having to purchase a factory made rack, is there a way to carry my golf clubs on my 1999 1500 goldwing that has a trike kit installed. it is almost that time of year!

Sure - easy if you have a trailer hitch. You can cobble something up to ride on the hitch, with uprights to bungie your bag and clubs to. One extra support strap around the top to keep the uprights from bending backwards, and Bobs your uncle. Make the hitch attachment out of a trailer tongue that you can get at any parts store, and some flat stock bent and bolted to it, and you are done.

There are lots of hitch mounted carriers for bikes as well if you don't want to make one yourself.

Can't help with golf clubs - but I can say that my AR-15 is no problem when going down the road :shock:

For as good as I golf tying a rope around the bag and dragging it behind the bike would work for me. Hopefully all the clubs would be gone by the time I got there.

I agree 1000%. I'll let others go golfing, I'd rather go riding. :)

I so agree. I am definitely a hack, hit more trees and traps than greens, but I still play, go fig.

I have not golfed for two years now. Not since I got my Goldwing. Before, when I was still riding a Harley, I had to Golf to keep my arms and back tendons loosened up enough to ride the Harley. Also, I only rode about a thousand miles a year. Now I ride 15,000 miles a year, and do not have time to golf. The last time I golfed, I parred the course (72 shots on a par 72 course) and the year before that I got a hole in one on a 240 yard par three hole, with a five wood. Riding a Harley made me a much better golfer, :lol: :lol: :lol:

No offense to Harleys because I still want to ride one, but that there is a good/bad advertisement for Goldwing....
- Ride a Goldwing, stop playing golf!

That's a benefit of living in South Central Texas...Golf season starts in Jan and ends in Dec. Riding season starts in Jan and ends in Dec... so there is plenty of time for Both, assuming you are retired and can survive telling the wife "not today" when she presents the "Honey Do" list. And all I gotta say about you Par golffers is you sure are short changing yourself...you pay all that money just to hit the ball 72 times.....Hell, I try to get at least 100 shots in for my money....If I accidently drop the ball in getting par, I try to double up on the next hole and get a double or triple bogey to keep myself on track...Besides look at all the money I save not using the driving range...
