  1. Heya Peeps
    Can anyone in the Gold Coast / Brisbane area recommend a reasonably priced motorbike trailer hire place? Trailer will just be needed for a weekend :)

  10. If you are on Facey, post up here as you will probably find help

    Good discussions about the event and useful information.

  11. My immediate thought was one of these, but to paraphrase a local advertisement "You are going to need a bigger bike"

  15. I found it here
    Bike trailer alternatives for track days - KTM Duke 390 Forum

    It has a silly american name - Steel Motorcycle Scooter Dirtbike Carrier Hauler Hitch Mount Rack Ramp Anti Tilt

    If you search for 'motorcycle carrier hitch' on Ebay you'll find them. For a small and light bike like yours it might be a reasonable solution.

  17. And that was me posting on the Duke forum!!

    Things to note are the weight allowance for your specific tow hook installation. Carrier weighs 20kg, can carry 225kg and tow hitch ball weight allowance was 200kg.

    Bike 130kg dry.

    I got the carrier for $80 on an eBay special. Worked a charm . I did not have the space for a trailer so this solved all that.

    Sold it on gumtree for $100 when I got my ute.

    1472686572125. If its only for one bike, you can borrow mine Valvoline, but you will have to come up to get it/return it.

    Might actually work out cheaper to rent one locally though

    Its a 7X4 box trailer with points to tie down the rear wheel and also a thang to put your front wheel into.

    Happy to let you borrow tie downs, my trusty ramp, etc as well.
