    Have a couple of friends that have them and they would not have anything else. I looked at Wind Ding in Huntsville, but the $$$$$$$$$$$ just weren't there. MAYBE SOMEDAY

    <font size="5"><font size="3">I have a BushTec Roadstar and love it. When I started looking for a trailer I looked and analyzed 5 or 6 different manufactures. Even went to 2 manufacturers plants to see just how they were made. Finally narrowed it down to 2. Just so happens that both had displays in Sturgis. Noticed BushTec at their old location on south Junction. Went to take a serious look at the one manufacturer at the Civic Center. They couldn't wire my bike and didn't have near the warranty that BushTec. So south Junction here I come. <br /><br />
    <br /><br />
    Met with John and his son, founders of BushTec.<br />
    <br />
    Now they were about $1500 more but the suspension, run flat larger tires AND customer service was the deal.

    While they wired my bike I HAD to watch a DVD on everything about the trailer. They made me demonstrate that I could hook it up and knew how to maintain it. <br /><br />
    <br /><br />
    i DO need to make it clear I bought my trailer when, like I said, John and Andy owned the company. I have had a couple issues with the new BIG umbrella company that bought them but as far as I can tell the product hasn't changed, a great, safe trailer. <br /><br />
    . <br /><br />
    <br /><br />
    Regretfully, since my wife doesn't ride anymore, I'm going to sell it pretty soon. Just don't use it anymore. <br /><br />

    Default Matching Bushtec

    Bought mine in 2013 at Wing Ding. Happy wife - happy life. Holds all her stuff and mine on trips. Follows the Wing like a dream. I have to keep looking back to make sure it's there.

    Thought very seriously about doing the same thing to my BushTec Roadstar to haul my Rott, Dakota, around but a vet friend of mine that rides with us every now and then gave me something to think about. She ask me if I thought my pipes were loud??? Run V&amp;H Monster Deluxe for the Tri-Glide. I said "yeah, were fairly loud". She then ask me since a dogs hearing is 12-15 times greater than a humans, how loud would they be to my dog"??? Didn't make the modification.<br />
    <br />
    Brought this up to the BushTech people a couple years ago in Sturgis when they came out with that very modification to one of their trailers. Their comment "didn't think about that"....<br />

    Kudos to your vet, AND to you for listening to him! <br />
    Another consideration to think about are exhaust fumes back there. They do not blow away from the trailer but at it. People need to just squat down behind that running trike for a few minutes to find out. I can imagine how really bad the fumes would be in stop and go traffic along with all the other vehicles' exhaust. Thank you for considering the Rot's well-being.<br />

    We have a Turbo 2 it is a 2006 have towed it behind an Ultra and now the trike. Great trailer great company to deal with. Have had no problems other than the locking latch only lasts a little over a year. But they told me there was a fix for it and if I came to the factory they would do it for me for free. Changed the tires this winter just because they were 10 years old and had around 75,000 miles, there was still plenty of tread. The trailers are not cheap but in my opinion are worth it.

    I took these with my phone but here's some pics of the Roadstar GT we just purchased.














    Ignore the tape on the bottom pic as we re-glued the lower section of trim,on each side.

    Looks good Clint.....all the options. I just sold a new 2016 yesterday just like it, best trailer on the road IMHO. I hope you aired up the shocks before you took it home....looks there was zero air in the shocks. The tires look slack too, they run 90 lbs of air in the tires.
