I'm pretty sure you gals and guys have seeing a few pictures of my Motorcycle carring bicycles over the years..
Well now I have a girlfriend that lives far away enough that I can not pedal to her house plus she loves to go exploring far away places.
As a result I'm beiong transporting my Tandem (and single bikes) a lot this days..
here are some pictures just for fun.
I just take the "Timing chain", take the rear wheel off (to diminish the cantilever mass) twist the forks 180deggres and kind of hope for the best
The frame stays, remarkably stable, even if is only attach by two mounts (usually three) well and then some straps.
The other day I carry two of my Ibis's the tandem and my SS but sadlly I have no pictures of it.
My Girlfriend shoulders (even if really wide) fit on the motorbike with some degree of comfort (so far the longest trip is about 140miles)
Loaded for a weekend of fun, Notice the "Red Flag" made out of a Profile bottle cage.
Visiting old friends at American cyclery in San francisco
Having fun in the Marin headlands
She is a great captain.
Coming back home to the city after a long ride.
If anything riding a tandem is one of the nicest things you can do with somebody you love.
