"Stealth" trailering...

Postby steady eddie » Wed Jul 24, 2013 1:31 pm

Here is one for ya....

A Stealth Trailer..on the cheap. Many times a child trailer can be bought at a garage sale for a modest amount. You have all seen one. They usually have a small child in them, while on the road. They often have a warning flag mounted, or a canopy over the hauling platform.
It seems that drivers of cars and trucks associate these trailers with a live, breathing, actual baby in the back. And they give you a wide berth, driving very carefully around both the bike and the trailer..

So here is the stealth part: You leave it like you bought it and pack it with all of your gear.
Put a baby blanket over your gear and zip the canopy closed.

Safety first.. :idea: .. :lol: ..
