    By adding a 400 pound motorcyle to your tounge weight can change alot in your towing. Plus any cargo loaded in the pup and tv. Can cause you problems.

    Have a 1995 Coleman Avalon. Ride a 1988 Electra Glide Classic. I want to get a motorcycle popup to pull behind the bike. The wife wants to get her own bike so the motorcycle popup would be a good deal for us.

    DW and I both have V Star custom's. I mounted a winch in the bed of the F-250 and winch them in backwards. Then I can just drive them off. We use them for day trip away from the campsite. Best of both worlds.

    We have a regular F-250 Super Duty not a flatbed. It works just fine it does take two of us DW runs the winch I stratl and walk them up backwards that way I can drive straight off. With both bikes and two tanks of gas and the PUP hooked up we are still not into the overload springs. These bikes both have bags and windshelds.

    One of the key reasons I bought my Coleman E3 was because I like to ride my 2003 Yamaha R1 track days on motorcycle road courses. I've got the 2003 R1, a 1998 Ninja 250, a 2009 Yamaha Zuma 250 scooter that my wife likes to ride. I've attended every MotoGP race at Laguna Seca Raceway since it returned from the 80's. Unfortunately it's no longer being held there, but I've got my tickets to the World Superbike races in July this year. I'm selling a 1982 Yamaha Seca 650, and a 1983 Yamaha Venture Royal. So the short answer is yes, I'm a motorcycle enthusiast.

    how ironic that in 2004, I left socal. MotoGP went to Laguna Seca.
    now.....in 2014 I'm coming back home........MotoGP is gone from Laguna Seca and possibly the U.S. all together.
    I have a Honda Hawk 650 (1989).........

    Got an '06 FJR as my everyday commuter. Which replaced the '87 FJ, which was my everyday commuter, which will someday be restored. Also have an old '76 DT to play on.

    I have a 98 jayco and a 97 Honda shadow spirit that I've rebuilt.
    I do all kinds of riding. Work communting, long distance, short distance, fast,slow. I don't care I'd always rather be on two wheels. If I'm not on two wheels I like be out in the camper or my tent or doing both. Right now I don't have a good way to get my bike with me, but I'll get there.
