Re: New Stablemate

Good looking work so far__Austen...the "moons' give you an ol' school bling.

And yes-CAT--I see the afore-mentioned sawzell hanging--ready for use. ..And on closer photo inspection--I see paint rubbed off the blade. Maybe our kind observations, along the way-- galvanized this young man into action--
ya think???

Re: New Stable Mate

NEVER apologize about updates large or small because ANY progress is a good thing.




Social media is a cesspool of questionable human behavior.

Even duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound!

The biggest lie I tell myself is "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."

Logic is most useful. If only more humans would learn it and embrace it.

Re: New Stable Mate


Good things are happening!

Well, I finally got my truck back from the body shop so I was able to pull the trailer out and work on some bigger things.

This past weekend I put new flooring in the front.

More exiting was test fitting a motorbike and garden tractor for the first time. It was fun to finally see the intentions of this trailer come together!

Next update should include mounted wheel chocks + tie downs, and the completion of the reverse lights. Oh yeah, and a photo shoot!


Where no other Ducati has gone before; a vintage horse trailer from the 1970s. Disgraceful!

Now let's try another motorcycle or three...





New floor in the front


Heading towards the trailer to load! This is getting exciting!! Will it fit?


And she fits! By golly that ramp door didn't flex at all either- sweet! The amount the ramp door on my previous enclosed would flex when loading a GT was scary. This thing doesn't even notice it. This old gal was built for carrying some weight.


...Plenty of room to spare for attachments too!


These pads were removed from the wall portions I took out earlier. I also want to keep the trailer somewhat original so I'm going to reuse them.


Purchased another wheel chock / tie down kit from Lock 'n Load.




Love things like this. One thing that always bugs me on trailers is the wiring connector that is so susceptible to getting beat up and getting moisture inside when it's not in use. I got one of these holders which keeps it watertight and from resting on the ground when disconnected from the vehicle. Problem solved!





Said goodbye to my former trailer.

Re: New Stable Mate

Austen, your former trailer was pretty nice, but the new one is certainly a step up in many ways. It even fits the PK with room to spare. The ramp is usually the weak spot on most trailers but yours looks like it will handle just about anything you will roll over it.

Thanks, Al! I posted this over on the Ducati forum and believe me, they weren't as impressed.
