Re: How are you getting to the track?

not yet. that uhual semi-truck syd wanted to get is to expensive so we might just rent a trailor. the most bikes we can fit there is probaly three, but for sure javier and i.

sucks cuz we were all supposed to go together on that trailor.

Re: How are you getting to the track?

not the one for the motorcycle but the small enclosed one. i think its 8x5.

hopefully syd can get this thing straightened out soon. we dont mind pulling a bigger trailor but it looks like theres no way we can pull 8 bikes in a trailor

Re: How are you getting to the track?

we dont need to pull an 8 bike trailor if we can do two 4bike trailor. i dont think my 4runner can pull it, but i could probably borrow a truck that could.

Re: How are you getting to the track?

we thought we only had the expedition to pull trailers. can you bring your 4runner of borrow a truck that has a hitch?

we can get a 4 bike trailer for about 19.95 a day. thats just $40 devided by four people = $10 plus gas money for those that pull it.

Re: How are you getting to the track?

a hitch is the thing that pulls it right? my 4runner comes equipped with it, i just need to get that ball thingy to pull it. but i dunno if i want to pull 4 bikes with it, the thing is lacking in hp. 180hp 200 torque. i;ll try to inquirer on that truck.

Re: How are you getting to the track?

the 4runner should be ok pulling it. we were going to pull 8 bikes in the expedition.

just remember were not going to be pulling these things at 85 mph right:

also, were pulling them so we get momentum and not that much energy is spent after we get going just when we take off with a burnout.


BUT lets continue this convesation itn the Caravn thread right:
