mmm...looks cool and i have a big trip heading down to this years MOTOGP at end of year....any thoughts in a single wheel trailer...makes a lot of sense over a standard two wheel trailer...also, how good it would be to dump trailer in motel room and cruise around without all the gear on the back....



Trailer found on this site - http://madmaxtrailers.com/

That trailer looks like the old made in Oz/NZ Uni-Go trailer. They seemed to be a great thing, leaning through corners etc. I think that company was sold or moved their stock to the USA a few years ago. Uni-Go have a US site https://www.unigotrailers.com/

It's interesting that the MadMax trailers are made by Unison GME, likely the same people from the name, or perhaps just a co-incidence. They (madmax) have popped up in mags or on forums from time to time for at least the last 5 years (http://www.m109riders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=127606 ), saying that production and sales are about to start....
I note that the website that you linked to has entries dated 2016 as the latest news:



Have you seen a completed trailer for sale, or just a another press release about some road trial or another promise to make one?

I'm no engineer, but I don't see why the pre-production period for this type of trailer should have taken so long, so there must be some substantial hurdles for David to overcome.

Hi Ox

I have been looking a bit today at single wheel trailers, there are a few out there by the looks and some good home made ones. I found a clip of one on a dirt bike going over really rough ground and was no issues at all...I be keen to see if anyone has had anything to do with them.

I was looking at my F6C and how the hitch could be fitted and I think this bike would be easy suited. Using the rear foot peg bolts and the muffler bolt, a simple Y shaped tow hitch could sweep around to the rear of the bike. As there are 3 points on each side of the bike there would be no movement up or sideways (as these three (six) attachment points are very solid.

If anyone has any info on these (in Australia be good but anywhere) it would be good. I think they make a lot of sense that they lean, and considering how rough many road are, i think two wheel trailers may hit the bumps you steer away from...this would not happen with a single wheel..
