    Took my Uni-Go out for a run today...

    Man I like this thing. It's actually the first time I've put any real miles on it, except for poking around the neighborhood a couple times while I worked on the Hitch and Wiring.
    Got it up to 80 MPH for a bit, but it settles right in behind the bike (2013 Honda F6B) at about 65 MPH just perfectly.
    Can hardly tell it's there, and can't really even see it behind in the mirrors.

    I look forward to loading it up this summer and taking off.

    I've always wanted to see one of these in person. Going to take a rattle can of paint to it?

    Re: Took my Uni-Go out for a run today...

    Two things worth mentioning about a one-wheeled trailer...

    I rode south on Hwy 25 to The Pennacles National Park. Once I was committed to the entrance I found myself stuck in a line of about 20 cars at the gate trying to get in, that were going nowhere. Heard my fans come on twice and figured I had enough, so the first time the traffic moved up, I just waddled over to the right of my lane and flipped a tight u-turn inside of the two lanes, and I was outta there! I'm sure that a three-point turn would have been a real challenge since the backing up part would have meant leaning the opposite way so the trailer would back correctly.

    Second... I also found myself actually filtering to the front of an intersection to drop into some space around a group of three other riders. You're not going to do that very often with a two-wheeled trailer that is wider than your bike.

    I'm really lovin' this thing!

    For the moment, Black is OK. I'm still debating on whether or not to paint my F6B White, like I originally wanted... at which time White would become appropriate for the trailer too. But for now, the Black works either way.

    I bought a 1 wheel trailer from Third Wheel Trailers in Ontario a couple of years ago. I like it being narrower than the bike with panniers. It isn't noticeable while cruising but I could feel it in the tight twisties.

    Backing it up is pretty much impossible. One, too much weight to push back and two, it's awfully hard to get it turned backing since you have to lean the bike to turn it.

    I like the design since the top half of the trailer opens so it's easy to load items as long as the trailer.

    I have a home built one wheel, there is a tread here on it. I back up with it fairly often. I try to avoid it, but I will do it. It is not that hard, just something to get accustomed too.

    Take that trailer to a vinyl print shop and have them work up a some stripping on that in red with the base being black, it would make the pair matched and look good.

    I wondered about backing them up. I suppose if you could just go straight back and then turn going forward to get where you're going...
