Jasper national park-my bike and lee sure lite trailer in august 2016

What a riding season so far it has been. I love going to Jasper Park so awesome there and the roads are decent to ride on. The people from all over the world you meet are just make it even more enjoyable that you meet there.

This video shows the park, my bike 1700 Vulcan Nomad 2009 and my Lees ure lite tent trailer.

Enjoy any questions message me.

you can

Lees ure Lite ships all over the world. This one I have is pretty well decked out with everything you can order that is reasonable to have with a bike. Swivel Hitch, Matress, Front and underneath Pods, Awning, Wide Tire Upgrade, inside Storage Pockets.

It runs about $6500.00 bucks set up like mine. Once moving you hardly know you have the trailer behind you. You notice it on the powerband when starting out and braking. My bike I have never complained about wind I have never felt the wind at all and with trailer this is true also.

You will also need a trailer hitch of coarse and I would not go with out the trailer wiring relay on any new car or bike it is a must. It isolates the current draw to the battery only and is fused. To set bike up for towing it is about a $500.00 bill really by time you get all hardware needed including plug and get a six way plug that way you have a power wire for charging.

Go to their website for more information.

A very informative video. Learned a lot about the camping aspect and you also touched on a few questions I had about my Nomad. You seem to be well set up. Thank you.

One of my favorite upgrades on my bike. I'm a little lower tech than the OP; just a cargo trailer and a tent (works fine for me). But man it is nice to have that much storage.

Like OP I really don't notice it, except braking and acceleration. The bike is a little sluggish in both. But cornering, etc., you really can't tell it's there. My Vaquero has no problem even making a hard stop, just takes a bit more pressure on the controls.

I agree totally with you Roman you really do not notice a trailer behind you just have to be aware of width of trailer, yes braking is a little harder and have to check the brakes more often for faster wear. Yep a little sluggish also but once moving just like nothing is there really in cornering or most other aspects while on the move. I keep a safe distance for panic stops more with the trailer on.

I love it and I love this style of tent trailer all the others are much more complicated to set up and take more time. I am a happy camper with bike and trailer.
