Just as the title says, I can't be the only one who like to cruise around.
Not to mention it makes an excellent backup travel vehicle in case of emergency.
Let's seem some pics of your two wheeled #BRAP mobiles!

Here's my 2009 wr250f, stock but uncorked.



Which Moto-Hauler is that, is it the Ultimate MX Hauler? How do you like it when going off the grid.
I'm actually preparing for a similar setup. Have a LX470 and want to haul a WR250R!

I know a lot of people that take their bikes with them.... Nearly half of the trailers I sell have the Moto tray option.

How does that hitch hauler work? I've been wanting one for better ground clearance than my current one.

Cant believe there arent more dirt scooter riders here. Any more my truck is the base camp and the bike is my adventure machine. The bike goes more places and is cheaper to fix when something breaks, I also dont have to ride it to work monday.

Back in the day, I trailed my motocross bike behind my car. I did a hitch with a bolt vertically through it and a piece of pipe the width of the spindle welded across the top. I pulled the front wheel and put the spindle bolt through the tube and tightened it down. Add a couple of tie downs to the bumper and presto the bike will follow you anywhere. Remember to put it in neutral or drop the chain. By the way, don't try and back up more than a few feet.

I probably pulled my bike a couple of thousand miles like this. Surprisingly I saw little if any wear on the knobby.

I want a dirtbike, but at 5 foot 5 and with a 30" inseam, there are no bikes small/lightweight enough for me that are also street legal.

There are plenty of short riders, I am only 6' with a 32" inseam. Any competent mechanic can also lower a bike ~2". This lady rides a full size 2 stroke. Her 4 stroke is lowered 2".

Makes my butt sag a lot, looking into getting King Springs shipped from Australia to throw on the OEM struts. Not a whole lot I can do with McPhearson struts on all 4 corners. Next up, some smaller wheels (19" stock pictured to 17" aftermarket) some nice bronze wheels with some A/T's will look nice I think! Got the kayak bars sticking out on both sides of the roof rack too, when I have gear on the rack, kayaks on, and a dirtbike I'm at my bump stops!

The Zuma or the skiff

My wife and I explored Vieques island in Puerto Rico on rented Zuma 125s. They were amazing for the cratered dirt backroads out there and fine for getting across the island on the blacktop as well. We only managed to bottom one out by riding two up and dropping into a 12 inch deep hole.. everything else it just took like it was nothing. Great bikes for exploring in my experience.
