Looking for help moving bike (trailer needed)

Going to need a trailer with an internal width over 5'6" to get my Ural out to Sealy (bike is at my house in Pecan Grove) to have some work done. Willing to to pay, and wanting to get it moved sometime this week.

Who would you guys suggest calling? I'm guessing standard towing companies aren't using trailers and I don't know how hard it would be to get it on a flat bed. I'd just rent a u-haul trailer but don't have a truck right now. I certainly don't mind paying as transport should be covered as part of the warranty work. Thanks in advance.

You are welcome to use my trailer if you have a tow vehicle. Max width is supposedly 86". I have seen people load Urals into the stock wheel chocks. From the sound of it I'm not sure that you have a tow vehicle though or you'd probably have opted to rent a uhaul trailer. I do not have time to do it for you, so this offer is basically "if you wanna pick up the trailer in League City and return it in a few days when you're done".

Edit: trailer is a Kendon dual rail

Ural not ridable? A cruise down 36 isn't all that bad.

I stretched my HF 4x8 into a 4.5x10 V-nose, but sounds like it's nowhere near wide enough.

If all else fails, I can pick up Repth's trailer and get you taken care of. It'll be a long shot, but I could make it happen if my schedule doesn't blow up tomorrow.

That works for me if Jae wants to do that.

i was gonna recommend greenappletrailers.com, but their locations seem to be on the north side of Houston....also don't know if you have a rig capable of towing.

I used the car hauler they offer to relocate a broken pop up camper...certainly would fit a side car rig.

Nope. Something broke on the same cylinder where the piston had contact with a spark plug (dealer f-up). My buddy's trailer measures 5' between the fenders and we are just barely able to squeeze it in using a couple of stacked 2x6 boards to raise the left side cylinder over the fender.

I'll shoot you a PM here in a minute, but I think I've got it taken care of. Same buddy who helped me get it home said he has some time over the next couple of days, I'll see if we can get it worked out since I already know his trailer and how to get the bike on and off. If I'm going to keep having this much trouble with my bikes I may have to call Wil and see just how soon he can get my truck wrapped up....

Thanks for the offers guys. If I can't get this worked out by Friday I'll probably be sending you guys a message.

What bike is this? Not familiar with it.

I have a large enclosed, but do not have my tie downs set up in it yet.

The rear drive doesn't like to have the 2wd drive shaft removed, making removal of the side car for transport a bit of a pain, and the boxer engine means that you need quite a bit more clearance on the left side of the rig than on the right.

With my use so far, on exactly 1/3 of the trips. Outside of trail riding that I hope to do on it, it's not a great highway bike, so primary use is to take my boys out for donuts on sunday mornings and for family rides around the neighborhood. Assuming it's running around Christmas next year, we'll probably take it around the neighborhood for our annual light viewing.

That said though, my hope is that in the next couple of years I'll be able to talk a riding buddy of mine into doing at least part of the trans-america trail (on his own bike) with me, I just need to make sure I can get all the bugs worked out of it before then.
