Sneak Peek: The Motorcycle “Bicycle Trunk Rack”

I may share some more detailed photos once I complete my proof-of-concept / real world testing.

On the bright side, it did not shift, loosen, or move around on my daily commute where my top speed over the 28 mile round-trip doesn’t see much more than 55 mph – 60 mph.  Yes, it’s a bit of an oddity sitting out there among the other motorcycles but, well, most non-motorcyclists and non-cyclists consider anyone who rides a two-wheeled machine on public roads a bit odd in the first place.  As they say, if the shoe fits….

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?

    Will you be at the MOA rally in Redmond with this rig? I’d like to take a look.

      Sadly, no. However, I’ll likely post some more details and photos in a week or so. Today’s trial run really went well: it’s rock solid with no hint of stability issues and absolutely no influence on how the RT handles at speeds up to 60mph (fastest clip so far). It was also really a treat to be able to combine my preference for commuting by motorcycle with my interest in cycling.
