Hi Wexman,

For sure it seems expensive, but I havea questions for you:

1. have you visited the site of the http://www.hecotrailer.com/content/produit.html

Hasperhaps you have notice, the trailer is all made of aluminum and well constructed. Many hours of work in this little beauty as it is call: the rolling marvel

I have another question:





Birthday:
1904-03-18

Is there a mistake in your birthdate or is it your real age ( almost 103 years old.... )?

If it is a joke, it is a real good one (Irish one isn't it). If not, tell me your secret.

Thanks for your reply.

Bert & Nicole

Hi teacher,

Sorry for the gas mileage, can not answer the question, I do not have the trailer yet. You know, here in Montréal area, the temperature is aroud -10° F with a couple of feet of snow. Québec city is worst, up to 5-6 feet of snow. The bike is been stored since beginning of november 2005. Planning to take it out of the shedbeginning ofapril.

I know a guy in Québec city which has one, perhaps he could give you an idea what the gas mileage and handling looks like. Here is e-mail adress:

[email protected] If I remember well he had told me back in 2004 the gas mileage had drop by 12 to 15%.

I'm not sure if he does speak english, if not let me know and I will contact him to send me the info and I will send them back to you.

Good luck in your research

Bert & Nicole

Hi Bert, you said something about the trailer will have a model sent to France this summer. I am surprised that such a big trailer is allowed over in Europe. In England that would exceed the allowed size, to tow behind a motorcycle I think?

Nice machine for touring in comfort though, even if it is so expensive.

Hi Bert ,,I had a good read on the site ,,But I still think it is overpriced ,But then it would be nice to see it in front of me ,so I could give an honest opinion on it ,,I hope it will be in France in time for the French treffen (wing ding) in may I will be there and will have a look and let you know ,,

As for my age I was lying ,,I am actually 124 years old ,,My secret is Drink ,smoke ,Back horses,chase women ,and party party party ,,

Oh the fairy tales of Ireland still survive cheers Ciaran

Don't pay any attention to Wexman, he's lying about his age, he won't be 124 for eleven more days.
