I was thinking about getting a 3 rail bike trailer. What method does everyone here use to get their Elsinore to the races?

Started out with a MotoJack from Ride Every Day (http://motojackrack.com/). It goes in the hitch and you put your bike on a plate and jack it up off the ground. Clamps bike to the plate via footpegs. Very easy to get the bike on it when your crackered after a long day's riding. Limited to one bike, but you don't have the speed restrictions of say a trailer. The Land Rover Discovery got un-reliable (english=breakdown) so the missus kindly took one for the team and now we have a Tacoma truck. God bless her! :D

Toyota Tundra. Really nice ride for those far away events. I can fit in three bikes, gear for me and a buddy, ice chests, chairs, Easy-Up, tools, gas and what have you. And I'm not limited to 55mph like I would be pulling a trailer.

Used to have this 79 F-150 2wd. 302 auto.

These little trailers work great cause their low and easy to load, even big heavy choppers, and if you have trouble maneuvering in small city parking lots you just pick the ass end of the trailer up and move it :mrgreen:

My 1st homebuild trailer, consisted of Bronco leaf springs, ford 8" diff with the pinion removed, a few chunks of aluminum angle iron and a sheet of plywood.
