Hydra Lift maiden voyage

I installed my hydra lift a couple of months ago and finally had the opportunity to travel with everything attached. 400 miles and everything is flawless. It is nerve racking to see the cart rock back and forth a little after hitting a dip in the roadway. However it is normal. I do not notice the extra weight.

We just completed a 8K trip with our new lift and a Road Glide on it. It was very nerve racking to watch the bike bounce around, particularly on the California highway swells, somehow it made it. I did have to stop and tighten the straps a few times. I had 8 straps on it including each tire strapped to the lift. For me worrying about the bike added extra stress I had rather not have. We are going to re-evaluate the benefits of carrying the bike on these long trips.

I've used my motorcycle carrier several months now and that initial stress is down to just going over the mental checklist. I confirm mentally that all the straps and everything else was done.

I installed a second rear camera that looks down on the cycle so that lets me confirm allot while driving.

I love not pulling my trailer anymore!
