Your rig ROCKS
! That rear garage is exactly what I was thinking of doing, but I'm apprehensive about riding my behemoth up a ramp that high. I'm even MORE apprehensive about backing
out along a ramp
. But still... that "garage" space sure looks tempting. Especially since this is going to be my "house" and everyone
needs a garage to work in from time to time.
Another option one of my friends suggested was to add a "porch" to the back that can lower to the ground so I could then drive onto it, then raise it back up to bumper height for driving. Since the bike's about 8.5' wide, and a bus is approximately the same, the porch would only have to stick out another 4' to accomodate the Nomad.
Anyone know if I can buy a commercial lift gate like delivery trucks that can lift about 1000lbs of stuff? I don't even know how much those motors are rated, or what kind of juice they pull...
If I can't find an industrial lift gate for the porch idea, I may have to bite the bullet and try riding up a ramp. ... maybe if I make the entire back side a door/ramp ... (wanders off mumbling to self with even more
I've not figured out how to post images yet, but if you do a Google Image search for 2006 Kawasaki Nomad
, you'll find several great images of my bike. It's my "long distance armchair" cruiser that I use as a car for everyday (rain or shine) driving everywhere. Better on a bike than in a box
is my philosophy.
Funny that I'm now going to customize a box to LIVE in!
