    I have been thinking about using a pull behind trailer for a couple years now and finally made up my mind and bought this one.
    2006 Bushtec Quantum GL.
    I have never pulled a trailer with a bike so this will be a new experience.
    My understanding is that the Bushtec is one of the best tracking trailer and everyone states that you don't know it is there. We will see.

    Nice looking trailer, I've never used one so I can't opine on how they handle.
    Let us know how you like it.:)

    Very nice, is that a spare tire inside? Looks like a lot of room for traveling.

    looks like the wheel well for the left tire.

    That is the cover for the wheel well.
    The spare sets flat in the bottom.
    These are 3.00 x 16 inch tires but with the spare inside with it's cover that matches the carpet looks very good.
    Most only have extra tube but this came complete with rim / tire.

    This is from our trip to Zion National Park last July.

    We often end up mailing things back home so the trailer should help cut cost of shipping.

    Good luck backing it up! Could be tough.

    Really nice, let us know how it tracks, I would think going slow is good until you get used to it.

    My plan is to pull it back and forth to work and anywhere else until I get comfortable with the stopping and acceleration of the bike than take the wife for a couple hour ride.
    Backing up is going to get allot practice. Might look embarrassing to unhook but I am sure there will be times it will be a necessity.
    Will definitely need to plan parking spots more.

    Sounds like a good game plan, you don't want to be the guy who parked his trike nose first downhill in a corner parking space, I watched him for a little while and then went and helped him back it out, he didn't have the reverse gear.:oops:
