Friday, at work, I found out that I would need to bring my handtruck home, to help a friend this weekend. I'd ridden my bike to work, so I bungee-corded it on top of my Igloo lunch box (in the passenger seat) and rear trunk. It stuck out a couple of feet past the back of the bike and looked, I'm quite sure, ridiculous. It got me thinking of times past and the various things I've strapped to my bike. I'm 19 and my full-time transportation is a '76 Kawi KZ400. My best friend had a cast from toe to hip and we needed to go somewhere, so we strapped his ankle to my D-ring crash bar and he wahooed it all the way, waving his crutches madly about. I also strapped my bass to the sissy bar, rising several feet above my head, to get to band practice. Recently I was given a Nantucket Beach Buggy at work and strapped that, along with my briefcase and lunchbox to my Honda Twinstar CM200! So, what have you strapped to your bike?

A wheel/tire for my Z71 some years back. I was in a bind with a flat spare and wifey gone. That was an adventure. No photos.

Nothing odd, just Packed full with camping gear, who needs a back rest.

I think skiri and Mcgovern have us all beat, tipping the scale at or over the full load capacity.

In 1983, with my Suzuki GN400 as my only transportation, I strapped everything to it. In the process of restoration work on a boat I bought for $50 back then, I had to strap on the tool bags, propeller shaft, propeller, extension cords, right angle sander and such.

:useless:

Your Right! So here is a pic with the tool bags (USCG provided) and propeller shaft still strapped on:

I have also been known to put one or two extra things on when camping? (That was before I got my Tag a Long trailer.)

About five times I've strapped a car tire on the 1800 - the last time about a month ago to take the tire 75 miles. I've also strapped computers, roto-mold tool cases, and various boxes from Amazon and eBay. If it fits, it ships!
