    Just had a look at the US Raleigh range and was a bit more impressed with that selection than I am with the UK lot. They are not regarded very highly over here.

    Some of the guys up here get a minibus and trailer to go on golfing trips, I imagine that there would be a trailer big enough to carry 15 or so bikes somewhere.

    I was looking at the Mini-Mule for a short friend but I was thinking it was just maybe too small but I found that it's 14 inches long whereas my 05 Mule is 18 so it's not that much smaller really.
