BRAT Take Two

Thursday, September 13, 2012

I thought I had posted about our new BRAT but looking through the archives, I don't see anything. The original BRAT was getting refurbished by our son-in-law when we came across a deal that was too good to pass up. Thanks to several friends, the new trailer was taken from TX to LA where we picked it up in June of 2010.

Here are some photos from that day (using Stu's 2009 Tri-Glide, now replaced with a 2012 Tri-Glide).

Recently Stu took the spare tire and mounted it underneath. Previously we carried it inside the compartment, not an optimal spot. He said it mounted very easily and it looks great!

We put all our camping stuff together and it takes up maybe half the compartment, leaving us plenty of room for our luggage (clothing, etc).

We still plan to take Sep-Oct 2013 for our trip so as that time gets closer, we'll post here with further preparations.

Ride safe,
Stu and Donna


  1. Hope it works out for you in 2013. I rode a Harley for the first time this summer after meeting my boyfriend whom I call The Biker Chef. We rode out to Yellowstone from Minnesota on our first long ride together. It was great. I write about our riding adventures at
    Found you on the A to Z blog.

  2. Thanks, Mary. Glad you found to check your page.
