The genuine place of a motorbike is on the road or the track. However, in some circumstances you need to tow your bike, holidays with all family, track days…
Among the most straight forward are the Trailers, the bed of a pick-up truck (in US) or a van (everywhere else). Here is a new option that I would not have thought about it….

For Purists only, a fast track delivery van has to be a Vincent. That’s the way Patrick Godet goes.

  1. The Dino Ferrari 208/308 towing a trailer full of Vincent’s is a sight . But the one that does it for me is Godet’s bike in a sidecar rig ! The only thing I’ve seen to equal that being a Ducati Diavel owner in Aspen , Colorado that has a built on rack on the back to haul around his $20k Cipollini racing bicycle 😉
