    First thing will be the stereo and an OBA system so I can get those air horns installed. Giggity!
    Howdy all. Come October I'll be buying my Taco and I think I'm going to invest in a trailer as well so I can tow my bike or whatever else need be. I was curious as to which size open trailer pulls better. I need a 10ft because that VTX is one big bike. :D I'm leaning towards a 4 so it will fit nicely behind the truck, but I guess I'm wondering what works best for ya'll. I'll probably purchase a 2002 model Taco or so. Thanks for any and all input.

    Just for references you might also want to look at "Trailer in a Bag". I'm not kidding, takes very little space in the garage and does the job required. Your VTX is not as big as a HD Ultra ElectraGlide and it handles one of those very nicely. There is another kind just like this in Richmond, Ca. I just can't remember the name brand.

    Well, it may not weigh as much as the HD, but I bet it's longer. Still, that's a pretty cool idea. I might have to check that out. That and if I ever need a trailer to move something that won't fit in the bed, I can always borrow one from my father in law. :D

    Thats cool I like that setup. It's a little expensive though but does save a lot of storage room. I can get a regular trailer/tilt trailer for half that. We'll see what happens when the time comes.
