Motorcycle's 19RR

I am thinking of purchasing a 19RR and was wondering if there was a way to haul 2 motocycles in it? Street bikes.

Thanks in advance.

Clint

My vote would be no. You might want to look at the 22RR for starters. However, what I would recommend doing is get some measurements of the floor plan, chalk them out in the garage on the floor and then park your bikes on it. See if it works. You will also figure out how you're going to tie them down. There are two hooks in the front and two in the back. My bike takes up the whole space but it's a touring bike. Street bikes is very vague description to answer definitely. Can you load one bike in the back of the truck? That's another possibility.

Tony-

Thanks for you reply.

The 2 bikes I will be loading is a Ultra and a Heritage.

Do you think there is ANY possible way to load these 2?

Thanks,
Clint

Yes. If you put one in the bed of the pickup truck. Putting both in a 19RR, IMHO, isn't going to work. Maybe if you had two mopeds or something. Otherwise, you'll need a longer trailer. Like I said earlier chalk it out in the garage if you want to know for sure. I don't see it happening though. I'm just going on how I imagine it would work out in my trailer. You'll know for sure if you have your bikes and try it out in chalk in the garage. That's what I did before I bought mine.

The price and weight difference between a 19rr and say a 21rr or 22 is minimal. That's where I would start. Maybe you can back one in and overlap the front wheels. I wouldn't want to back a bike up a ramp though. The kitchen just doesn't give you much width to work with.

I did find an 18"x22" cutting board at Wal-Mart for $25, but I tried a smaller one (15"x21") that was $15. I ended up taking that one back since you really need 18" to cover the stove front to back. I ended up finding a larger one than the $25 one at Wal-Mart when I went to Bed-Bath-and-Beyond. This cutting board is 18"x24" and is $30, but BB&B always has those 20% OFF coupons so it was actually $24 (less than Wal-Mart!).

I bought two packs of closet rod mounts at Wal-Mart ($0.97 each) so the whole project was $26 plus tax.

Here are the white plastic closet rod holders from the hardware section in Walmart:


Two of the rod holders (one in each package) are completely round (the side you put the rod in first) and two have the tops notched out of them (the side you drop the rod into). I put the two round ones upside down on the rear of the stove, sliding them inwards till they touch the vertical wires in the grill of the stove. Then I took the two with notches in them and put them all the way on the front of the stove sliding them outward until the wires were converging to the point they would not slide out any further:


With them upside down and where you want them on the stove, I put duct tape on the back of them (making a loop so it is like double sided tape... or use double sided tape). Then carefully set the cutting board down, exactly where you want it (this is the trickiest part). Since this cutting board was 24" wide, I rested the one side against the wall of the fridge which helps me align it when putting it on. After pressing down on the cutting board to get the tape to stick, lift the cutting board straight up and flip it over.

You can then screw these rod holders into the cutting board to permanently hold them in place (I used 5/8" screws so they did not come through the other side of the cutting board). I also used a pencil and drew circles around them and lifted them up and removed the duct tape before screwing them down. This is what the bottom side looks like. These rod holders can be "feet" if you want to take the cutting board off and use it on another table:


The way the feet are staggered, I think it would be fine leaving it on while traveling. It really doesn't move anywhere. However, since the stove is so close to the tank on my bike, I don't think I will leave it on for our first trip next weekend with the bike. I would hate to prove myself wrong and find a big dent from a cutting board in my gas tank. I think our second trip, when I am not taking the bike, will be the test run to see if the cutting board stays in place going down the road.

This is what the final product looks like. Now we have more counter space and a huge cutting board!
Freaking GENIOUS !!!!!
