My co-pilot wants to go see a movie (and he's not real big on burritos, especially ones bigger than him), so I think we're either gonna go see some penguins or a panda. Besides, if we showed up on my R1100S, Woody will never be able to sell his Rockette.

Brilliant, thanks. And yes it was Joe, good memory. Now need this x's 2 for wife. Maybe, could use as wheelie bar too

You might be on to something here.. 12 oclock wheelie bars and bike carrier all in one.. biathlon adventure stunt riding it could actually catch on

Re: The Comet

I've never moved on this idea, but I think it's very doable. I basically want to mount a trailer hitch to the wing, then have someone fab a double-vertical aluminum bike rack for it. Vertical would give us the turning lean angle clearance. My concern has always been where to put the bearing points so the bikes don't get bent during pot-hole hits.
