Get well soon Maxx England

Nothin' to do with blues? The name says it all. You might try e-mail or Personal Message, but if those don't work for you, put it here, not in the blues forums above. Thanks!

Last thing I had was a rat 535 Viagro, then some kids stole it and torched it when they realised it wouldn't run.

I'm after something that will suit my short legs and have enough go to cover all the jobs I want of it. Room for some luggage, might even tow a trailer with it so I can put up a decent sized tent somewhere.

A trike would do all that, without need for a trailer.

But it's harder to fall off trikes. And they don't slide between stationary traffic anything like as good as a solo.

And how far down the trike road do you go anyway?

A trike is not my like.
My regular bike is a 82' Suzuki GS1100G, and the one that busted my bone is a '90 Suzuki GSX750F.
With a rack on the back, I can camp with the 1100G.

I have one of these, I want to carry it if I can. Crouching in a 2 man dog kennel has never appealed to me unless the alternative was dying of hypothermia.

So, a trailer to carry it, a chair, table, single ring cooker and Essential Supplies. Or landing on innocent friends :mrgreen:

Probably would fit into a Mini, not any bike I know without a sidecar or trailer.
But, I think you need a bike to hook a trailer to, am I right?
Nothing wrong with car camping.

I have a campervan, unfortunately I have a wife as well who wants to come along to things and then I can't just go around keeping my own timetable and doing things on the spur of the moment.

After 37 years, surely I'm allowed some time off for good behaviour?
