yes its a blast to use, and making a few bucks doing some vending gigs with it makes things that much better.

Re: skoolie days

just picked another bike, its a 1974 honda ct90 trail in mint shape, the plan will be to carry the honda jazz, and this trail 90 on the back of the bus, will soon start building the rack for the bus.

Re: skoolie days

Nice find!--- I've been looking all over for a trail 90 but mostly finding only "parts bikes". That bike looks new!

tks, I was lucky to find one around here, there hard to find, this one has all origanel, tires, cables, etra, has 1200 miles on it. it has a bit of a crab issue, (that year was prone to it) I may just replace it , can get them on e bay. Now I have to get to work on the hitch, and build the deck to put them on.We will bring them with us for our next big trip, if we fine that there more a pain in the ass, the next step will be to tow a small car. I really dont want to, so im hopeing using scooters will be ok. If we do the boon docking in quartzsite, I want to make a small trailer and tow it behind the 90, also to be able to tow one of those blue turd haulers to dump the holding tanks, and haul water etc, but that wont be for another year or so.

Blue totes are very handy to have. We used our 32 gallon two wheeler a lot while staying in a State park (w/e hookups only, had to use the dump station). Get a 4 wheeler and replace plastic tires with rubber tires (Do It Yourself Modifications and Upgrades (DIY) has instructions). Protect it from the sun as the western sun kills/rots/degrades plastic in a short time. Since I tended to keep my hitchhaul attached to the back of my Jeep (meaning I couldn't use the hitch ball to pull the tote) I bolted one of the cast iron tow hooks from the front of my Jeep to the back of the hitchhaul, dropped the metal loop tote handle on it and pulled it to the dump station. Get the bobber set up while your at it. I seriously suggest that you get a tote that will hold the entire contents of your black tank in one dump if possible. Overflowing the tote is not a pretty sight. I didn't but have seen others misjudge...

Re: skoolie days

ya looking at 30gal 4 wheel hauler black tank is 25gal. I have seen the mods for the tanks, ill have to put better wheels the plan will be to tow it behind the honda 90. Not really sure if we would need one but Im building and planning for everything that I think Ill run into in the near future. If you try quartzsite next year then for sure we would need it.

thanks lorna

Re: skoolie days

The best thing about changing out the wheel is that it increases the ground clearance of the tote. My tote has lots of serious scratches on the bottom from the lousy speed bumps in campgrounds. Not good.
