This might be a bad idea...



I like surfing and I like riding my motorcycle (despite previous accidents) so I decided the best way to enjoy both would be to ride my motorcycle to the beach and then surf. The problem was, of course, what to do with my board. Well I bought a surf rack for a bicycle and with a little modification attached it to my motorcycle. A bad idea? Well it does come with a few risks*, but only time will tell.


* Risks
  • the rack breaks, my board falls to the road, it is run over and destroyed
  • a gusty wind blows me into oncoming traffic resulting in a horrible mess of gore
  • the surfboard somehow twists around, and ends up sitting across the back of the seat lengthwise with the surfboard acting as a wing, the motorcycle then becomes airborne

Watch those cross winds on Folly Rd.! Looks like an expensive sail just waiting to get you into trouble. Lower speeds should be a bit more managable. Keep us posted on the results...then I'll hook one up to my supersport Ninja and see how fast it'll spin me around. LOL.

I'd put the fins forward... be good road test to see which works best. I personally believe in fins forward on a car, especially on the Interstate... boards ride better with less thumpin and bumpin..

Try it and report back.
