After modifying the trailer two days before we leave, we load everything up and go. The best way to test something is by immediately throwing it into production. I’ve learned this through my career. Nothing can go wrong.
Greg has his 1969 Honda CL70 loaded up next to my 2000 Suzuki DR-Z400E. The rear of the Explorer is completely packed with luggage, toys for my nephew, parts, tools, everything we thing we might need.
We did manage to have quite the uneventful drive up. We did need to stop a couple of times and adjust the straps for the motorcycles. I’m not real big on how the Canyon Dancer handlebar mounts work. While they worked great for the short run I had made previously out to Norco, the longer drive resulted in them bunching up on the grips which allowed the bikes to sway significantly more than I was comfortable with. Nothing fell off though, so that was a wonderful feeling.
