Motorcycle Trailer Problems

The trailer came off the hitch yesterday while traveling about 30 mph on a back road to Fort Parker Texas State Park. I hit a pot hole and with in second I heard scraping noise and felt a bump and was pushed forward hard. It scared the hell out of me! I got the bike parked and checked out the rear of the bike. Trailer was disconnected, the chains did their job and we’re still connected.

I reconnected everything and did a inspection to see why it came disconnect. I didn’t see anything, so it must have been that I did not properly connect everything. I usually double check everything, I’m not sure what happened this time. But I will for sure in the future double check everything.

And when I got checked in at Fort Parker Texas State Park I got to my campsite I was not able to raise the top of the trailer because the winch gears were scraped down to where they were not properly working. I look for a local Tractor Supply store (only 6 mile away) from where I got the original winch and I headed over to Mexia Texas to pick one up.

It took forever to get the old winch off and the steel cable removed. I finally got the new winch installed and it’s working right now. everything is looking good now but I’m certainly going to keep an eye on it just in case.

It took me about three hours to get the new winch and to do all the repairs. All that wore me out and I did not feel like cooking dinner. Out of the blue a lady that was camping across from me comes over and offers me dinner. She was an angel in disguise. Her name is Judy and she was with a group there at the park called Sisters On The Fly. Judy you are awesome and thank you for your kindness!

Time Lapse Fort Casper Campground, Casper Wyoming • 08-18-2021

Camped out at the Fort Casper Campground in Casper Wyoming. A storm was a brewing so I set up the DJI Osmo Action to take a photo every five seconds. I thought it turned out pretty good!

Sturgis • Dave’s Very Cool Teardrop Trailer • 08-06-2021

I met Dave Winslow in Texas last year at an antique motorcycle show in Jefferson Texas. He did not have his teardrop trailer at that time, and when I heard he had it here in Sturgis I had to go over and take a look at it. He did an awesome job on this trailer.
