Hitch and lock

I think I got this idea from one of you and it's a simple and effective way of locking the trunk.

When I was in Florida I stopped by Holopaw to order a hitch.

I asked him to weld a nut on the side and put a bolt in it so I could tighten down on the receiver and take all the side play slack out of it. This makes a big difference when pulling a single wheel Uni-Go trailer.

Hi Barry
I like the hitch! :D That's good thinking, having Holopaw add the welded nut and bolt to the receiver. I would love to see some pics of Your Uni-Go mounted up when you get the chance. I too have a Uni-Go that I pull with my Honda. It's a GREAT trailer, and you don't see them very often! Here are a couple pics of mine.

The neat thing about the Uni-Go is it has almost no effect on gas mileage and it's always right behind your bike. No wheel like on a two wheel trailer runs off on to the shoulder if you take a turn too tight. I was thinking this morning of picking up some camo tape and coating it as it's white now.
