Hi Adam,

i believe it is a single axle and is braked, it might be a twin axle but I think not.

When he drops it off I send you some pics.

Cheers everyone some decent idea's to keep me thinking there. Max budget would be the new trailer dog suggested but ideally a second hand one for 150-300 7x4 minimum. Tow bar is going on next week best price I could get was 260 all in fairly happy with that.

 Thanks Ian G .i was dubious about buying it, .but i checked them out and they were 1500 quid new. My mate said how hard is it to load your bike on a trailer,  i said not as easy as riding it on ๐Ÿ˜‚. You always make a compromise with everything . But if it looks as good in the picture. I will be happy.  I hope my superstock don't weigh 540kg๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘

Never seen anything like that before looks the business mate should make one man loading much easier. Track season is creeping up fast.

Following. 

I'm in the market for a trailer to. That pneumatic trailer looks the dogs danglies!!!

I bought a Generator yesterday so the TD starter kit is starting to come together. 

I have a budget of around £250 to. I'm hoping for a galv 2 bike trailer, they seem to be few and far between though :-(

Not a pneumatic lowering system on this one but a manual, cantilever lowering system,,they look a really simple , clever bit of kit in the videos I've seen..

That's a very neat idea. 

I'm aiming for a two bike in the hope I'll have enough spare spare to store the generator on it at the same time .

That's a decent price, whilst I was in indespension sorting out the towbar last week ( cheers Adam they beat my best qoute ) they tried to sell me an ex display similar to that for 450 but I'm going for a normal trailer rather thsn a bike specific one.

I'll be booking at the end of the month. It was brilliant last year. It's because of that I'm almost not riding the road now. LOL 

Cheers., Something will pop up shortly no doubt. I'm not in a major rush. I've got something booked for the end of March. So the aim is to have everything raring to go by then.

 It's not a bad thing not to riding on the road , i done more track miles than road . I like a  the odd ride on the road with a few friends, but the risk is a lot greater than it was in the 70s, well definitely more traffic and worse drivers , i will get stick for that. ๐Ÿ˜‚. But i don't even know if i will make the the R1 for road as well as track.  The Aprilia is fast enough to get in trouble, and 198 hp will feel insane on the road so after convertinig to a track bike i might just leave it , maybe a a day time mot to check something before going on track.
I will have to see how it is a a road bike,  i got a feeling the Aprilia will be hard to beat at that.  Definitely will live longer on track Sam . ๐Ÿ‘

I folded it today IanG,  it is an amazing trailer dosen't take up much room , it it a little heavy but i am quite weak at the moment . Hopefully will get better after my injections .
Took two of us , but the pictures didn't do it justice and i bought it blind, definitely worth every penny .๐Ÿ‘

Storage is the reason I didn't buy a trailer,i did look into buying a single bike collapsible one when I got a towbar fitted but I've heard (and seen! ) too many horror stories and it put me off.

I did buy an almost new ERDE 3 bike unit complete with a road/race  Kwack 636 1bh but it all got stolen so had to start from scratch again.

Currently I have the use of a similar 3 bike unit but it's a pain having to collect/return it as I have no storage space,that one of yours looks like the ideal unit.

All of the trackdays in the last 6 years or so I've done with a mate and we've hired a van between us and now I find vanning way preferable to towing.

Said mate has now sold most of his bikes and got into other hobbies so any future track forays will probably be trailered as the cost of van hire without sharing costs will make it uneconomic.

Have you considered the Motolug , Tapmyhead and Paddedcell both got one and although Adam hasn't used his, Nige had no complaints about them.  I did want one but missed out on two on ebay.  But the way they hinge at the tow hitch end is pretty smart for one person easy loading, Collapsible and they can be stood up too.
