    looks great EXCEPT for the rig your child is riding in !! The exhaust is blowing right back at her and the noise would eventually be a big problem down the road! and I don't see any provision for any flex in the hitch for going over deep ruts and such!

    That pic was taken in the garage on the kick stand, just though it was cute and is the only picture I have of that trailer. I would never tow her behind come on russau have a little faith in me! Not sure what your referring to with the hitch, Ive tested both trailers successfully and had the sherpax on some very technical stuff on the Eagle lakes ohv trail near Truckee CA. Works like a charm so far!

    Now looking at photos again I think I see what your referring to. Yes if you were in deep enough of a rut the trailer would bottom out on the sides, so I guess I better say out of the deep ruts!

    Thanks Asmbandits, I really appreciate you sharing you experience and wisdom with us. Hell, I can just see this older guy zooming down the dusty Forest Service roads with my trailer in tow. Ha Ha, make my day.

    Now, off to work, ugh! Smokey as the dickens with all the fires around us.

    Yeah I can imagine it must be really bad for you up that way. It was really bad down in the bay area last week, ive never seen it that bad before you would think there was buildings on fire in town nearby yet its from the multiple fires all around 100's of miles away..

    I miss my Honda Elsinore, sold it about 1986. Not sure how rugged the country is where you live, but that would be hard to maneuver on many of the trails here. Fortunately my wife usually yells at me before I get in too much of jam.

    One of my first dirtbikes was a Honda MR175 Elsinore, what a sweet bike.. Had so much low end power for a 2 cycle and would climb anything!

    Prospecting
    Nice setup Asmbandits, I went the Po Boy route and rebuilt a 50$ junked Baja 165... added missing trim, Predator 6hp engine, torque converter, and a custom trailer that doubled as the dredge/highbanker platform. Worked really well, except for deeper water crossings.. once that torque converter belt gets wet it will slip until the water flicks off.

    This is a pic with everything loaded for a 2.5" dredge banker packed like a Jenga puzzle.
