Things to Consider When Choosing a Motorcycle Trailer

kendon-things-to-consider

Riding a motorcycle is one of the most thrilling experiences in the world. There’s nothing like the feel of the wind around you as ride, whether it’s taking in the scenery of a quiet backroad or exploring the busy streets of a new town. If it were practical, you’d ride your bike everywhere, but sometimes that’s not the best option. When circumstances require that you tow your motorcycle, only the best trailer will do, and at Kendon, we offer a variety of trailers to meet your needs.

Trailer Test: Kendon Single Ride-Up SRL Stand-Up Trailer

Trailer Test:

Our friends at Rider Magazine recently wrote a great product review of the Kendon Single Ride-Up SRL Stand-Up™ Trailer. It’s a great trailer test from an industry-leading multipurpose motorcycle magazine. Rider Magazine is a leader in motorcycle journalism with some of the most seasoned and respected writers in the business.

 

Rider put the Kendon Single Ride-Up SRL Stand-Up™ Trailer through a trailer test over a long, ten-month stretch where it was used by their staff for bike tests, tracks days, and photo shoots. The product test process can be grueling and difficult. Long days, rough conditions, editors who are paid to produce stories, not take care of equipment. Through it all the Kendon trailer stood its ground and passed this trailer test with flying colors. In the end, the Rider staff loved the trailer enough to ask to keep it for a long-term trailer test. Look for a follow-up review in another year or two after they’ve had a chance to really abuse it.

 

Behind the Scenes:

What the trailer test in Rider didn’t mention was the little mishap that occurred along the way. A couple of months into the test we got a call from the Editor. Seems someone had stolen the trailer’s license plate. While getting lunch or gas or both, someone snagged the plate off the back of the trailer. A police report and a few trips to the DMV later, the magazine had a plate again and the trailer test was back underway. There’s probably a lesson to be learned there; something about Loctite and visible parking spaces. We’ll leave that up to you.

 

Online & Social:

Be sure to check out the test in the October issue of Rider Magazine.

Small Feet, Big Products

Space may be the final frontier, but for most of us, it’s also very valuable. If you’re like most people, you don’t have much room to spare. Whether you own or rent or something in between, you’re probably using nearly all the storage space you have. So when it comes to power sports trailers and lifts, less is more. Less space, of course. Kendon folding, stand-up trailers and lifts are designed to store vertically for maximum space-saving convenience. Everyone has room for a Kendon product.

Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailers

Kendon-Stand-Up-TrailerKendon’s patented folding, stand-up trailer design provides the smallest storage footprint of any power sports trailer on the market – Guaranteed! Our unique design and vertical storage capability take up only 27 inches of space from the wall. Couple that with our narrow axle construction and torsion bar suspension and Kendon trailers range from 72 inches to 101 inches wide. That’s a footprint close to the size of a standard, full-size bedroom dresser. Small enough to roll up against the wall and still park a car, a truck, or motorcycles in front.

Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailer footprint sizes:

One-rail trailers: 27” x 72”

Two-rail trailers: 27” x 86”

Three-rail trailers: 27” x 84”

ATV/SXS trailers: 27” x 101”

Kendon Stand-Up™ Motorcycle Lifts

Kendon-Stand-Up-LiftsOur motorcycle lifts fit in any garage, even yours. What better way to clean or work on your bike than on top of a Kendon folding, stand-up lift. And with a footprint no bigger than a typical small office filing cabinet, everyone can find storage space in the garage for a Kendon bike lift.

Kendon Stand-Up™ Bike Lift footprint size:

All motorcycle lifts: 17” x 28”

Stop worrying about space and go get yourself a Kendon trailer and lift. We know you have the room!

Go Easier With Kendon Retrofit Kits

Goldwing-_ride-up-retrofit-kit-5684-500x500Life can be hard. Go a little easier with the Kendon SRL Ride-Up Retrofit Kit. Stop pushing your bike onto your standard-model Kendon trailer. If you own a 2003 or newer standard Kendon trailer, you can use our SRL Ride-Up Retrofit Kit to convert your standard, push-up trailer into a convenient ride-up model.

Prior to 2013, all Kendon trailers were designed for you to push or walk your bike onto the trailer. In 2013 we introduced the first Kendon SRL Ride-Up trailers to allow users the convenience and safety of riding their bikes onto the trailer. The response was so overwhelming that we then built a retrofit kit for older and standard model trailers. The retrofit kit works on all 2003 and newer Kendon trailers and converts a standard trailer into an SRL Ride-Up trailer.

SRL, or Suspension Reactive Loading, is a combination of frame geometry and suspension technology that virtually eliminates the ramp-to-trailer apex and minimizes clearance issues while loading the trailer. Combined with wider ramps and extra deck pieces for foot placement, the SRL Ride-Up Retrofit Kit provides users with a safe, easy way to ride their bike onto their trailer.

One-Rail Trailer SRL Retrofit Kit

retrofit-motorcycle-kit:

  • 39” wide ramp
  • Full-width rear section
  • Incorporated SRL frame geometry
  • All required mounting hardware

Two-Rail Trailer SRL Retrofit Kit:

  • 39” wide ramp
  • Rear section deck extension
  • Over-axle footboards
  • Incorporated SRL frame geometry
  • All required mounting hardware

SRL Retrofit Kit Benefits

  • Suspension Reactive Loading geometry eliminates ramp-to-trailer apex
  • Extra-wide loading ramp
  • Wider rear sections
  • Footboards for safe foot placement

Stop working so hard. Stop pushing your bike onto the trailer. Visit Kendonusa.com today to order your SRL Retrofit Kit and go a little easier.
