Just a funny observation

Post by bigsteveswing »



I had to bring some 6 foot pieces of conduit home from work this week. I had a little chuckle that they were easier to haul on the bike than they would have been in the car... :)

Over the last 50 years, I've hauled home some weird loads.
Eight foot 2x4s, gallons of paint, a complete bookshelf sized
home stereo system, and the best, a three foot by five foot
painting of the NYC skyline that I bought as a gift to
my mother!!!
LOL!!!

I've hauled quite a few things that were rather large on my Wing.
Astrovan windshield (36 miles), an 8 ft. 'A' frame ladder, adjustable steel lolly column for sagging floor joist, two 7 ft. garden trellis,
four 12 ft. 1x4 pine boards, 30" tall concrete Eagle, 28" diameter all beveled glass chandelier, and a host of other stuff,
...not all at the same time. ;)

Reminds me of this bill board picture I used to pass on my way to work everyday back in the early 80s.

Pull six cotter pins and six hinge pins, lift the camper hardware out, and my camper trailer converts into a 3.5'x 6' x 18" deep open top box trailer, I could haul all sorts of stuff with that! One of my riding buddies suffered a stroke a few years back, now confined to a wheelchair. There's an annual poker run a bunch of us do from time to time. I could carry his wheelchair in the box trailer and we could take him on the run again. I think he'd like that. Big level of effort to go get him, though. He now lives in a home three hrs away...

Still waiting to see someone towing an aluminum rowboat on a trailer behind a Goldwing. Not that heavy, and you could load it with camping gear, too. Would be an easy tow for a 'Wing.

If you can do it on one of these, then it should be no problem for a Wing.

It's GREAT you can help your riding bud get out and enjoy life. 👍
You can pull a little more than a rowboat 👇
