really need a trailer spot to msrh this sat!!

So I had a trailer to get there but its owner didn't tell us it was in awful shape until a week ago.

Then I was gonna get towed up there with someone else but he's borrowing a truck that only holds 2 and its full too.

So now I'm 3 days away from the trackday with Ridesmart and have no clue how I'm gonna get my bike up to MSRH.

I desperately need some help now. Ill compensate for gas or whatever else you need to get out there!

My girl has a silverado. It doesn't have a hitch though because she thinks the truck is pretty and didn't get it to haul anything

But hitches are cheap and easy to install!

If you get a hitch, you can borrow our trailer. 6x10 set up to carry 3 bikes. You'll need to come get it Friday (Katy Proper) cause I ain't getting up that early on Sat.

PM me if you want it.

PS
Sounds like you haven't trained your girl very well......................

Cash is tight and I haven't gotten ramps yet. I know, it sounds silly I don't have them yet but its at the top of my list.

And don't laugh but that 08 silverado sits HIGH and I would hate for the bike to fall off the side of a ramp loading up. I don't really know the right way to get a bike into a truck. I've just never done it.

Borrowing a ramp would be easier. Just back the truck up to a small ditch so the angle on the ramp isn't so severe, then push or ride it up. Get someone on your side to help you.

come on excuses excuses, I load my bike in the bed of my F-150 fx4 with lift sitting on 35s. I have had both Helena's and mine in the bed of my truck. Just back up to something. At msrh I back into a ditch by the go cart tracks. If you have to just buy ball and tow off bumper. By the way the hitch is going to cost you WAY more then a ramp.

you can bumper pull that small of a trailer very easy.


if the bumper has the plastic that covers the hole, get a box cutter and cut out the hole, keep that piece and pop it back in when your done. Works great on retal trucks also.
