i have it mounted with the windscreen mounts from my flyscreen.
i like the flyscreen but i dont usually have it on..so this is just temporary till i order the right brackets for the headlight.
it takes H4 bulbs so both housings run as low and high beam. i just hate having 1 headlight bulb...if it goes out yer SOL.

That's the coolest thing I've ever seen. I think I'm going to research making one that doesn't break down as much to go in the back of my pickup.

Yes, that's a cool trailer. Looks easy to load, too.

Oh, and the bike looks great!

Thanx guys!
Wonderfull thing. Its held together by pins (about the size of hitch pins) and those "R" shaped cotter pins. Trailer weighs about 150, and my bike is about 550, so that puts it at about 700 or so pounds, below the cars rated 1000lb limit. Tho its a bit pricey. With LED upgrade on lights (tho they stillsucka$$and will switchthem out atsomepoint),sparetireand shipping,itwas 1400 bucks. But well worth it. Trailer has made several trips (700 miles one way) with out issue behind both my car and truck. One person can put it together, its alot eassier with two. And it all fits in the trunk of a 4th gen GrandAm (96-98)

Got my passenger pillion form Roughcraft's in the mail today.

Looks pretty good, quick on and off, not sure how comfortable it'll be though. Ha!

Definitely meant for an Asian's a$$, or just a scoot around town. LoL
