  1. see you there. trying out my two door red jeep with the bike hauler (harbor freight). post ride hang out in the beautiful desert.
  2. GPS Question

    You'll be good to go with any of GPS offerings. Be sure to get GPS that you can "download a track" to. For me, I want to be sure the GPS I purchase has a "track back" feature "satellite based" for exploring areas while camping. I have experienced to many times that "I can't see the forest through the trees" and sometimes all the turns will look a like on the return trip to camp. Too many times, the choice was a coin toss. My cell phone has a free GPS app installed, which I like, for general use and has a easy to use "track back" feature. Easy cell phone apps I use: Basic GPS Tracker, US Topo Maps. Tip: Save your Google Maps "exploratory ride areas" to: Google Map "Offline Maps & Navigation" for use "off line" with no internet access needed and reference your maps later on your cell phone. ? Someone please verify this statement (I am only 90% sure of this). A satellite will place a blue dot on this map for your location outside of the cell service area. ? True or False?
  3. GPS Question

    My wife and I used the e-trex when we scootered through Europe a few different times. The e-Trex has good basic functions of following a route. Small design, mounts easily. Economical. We used velcro around the handlebars of the scooters. The unit weights nothing, so it will stay in place well. The more expensive units are easy to use also to do the same basic functions. All units will require reading the instructions to operate and download tracks or a buddy to show you. What other GPS units are economical out there?

  5. Brought the baby home today!

    What is your review of the AT? It sounds like the perfect match for your trip.
  6. IDBDR Bike Choice

    "the upcoming KTM 790 looks just right". Well said.
  7. What is up? Sure is a lot of tools involved.
  8. looks great and good photos. I sense a retail market for this one. I have found only hydraulic lift versions or custom builds like this one on the internet. Thanks.
  9. "The off the shelf receiver style bike haulers all have a 3000# limit on towing behind them. In their case they are supporting the bike on the hitch." Wow! Custom built then? Where? Joe Hauler? Any El Cajon builders you recommend? CID, have you figured this out for your similar needs?
  10. pbdblue, Brikman, tntmo, Thanks for your posts and links.
  11. Bags, What setup is this? Yours? What a great response from the group!!! The first hand experience sharing has been terrific and important. The RV centers and myself have been concerned about the extra "leverage" from the extensions affecting tongue weight specifications and RV driving performance (the straight tracking of the RV). Any comments regarding "RV tracking" with a 26' class A and tail whip/sway? Anyone have an extra setup they no longer need? Thanks.
  12. Link: https://www.harborfreight.com/dual-hitch-extender-69881.html What is the most stable way to haul a 2 door jeep and a 250 lb. mx bike or a 450 lb adventure bike at the same time with a class A 26' "shorty" RV? (Fleetwood Flair RV) Should I mount them on the tail of RV or tail of Jeep. If mounted on the RV tail, can you make turns O.K. without the bike hitting the Jeep. Is the turning radius of the RV limited? Seems like it would be. Anyone have any experience with this?
