Sport-Utility 9er--Carrying furniture on the 919

I've been revamping my place a bit, but don't have a car...no matter, I have a 919...

After an Ikea run


Getting bolder, getting used furniture from craigslist (glad for the Givi racks to use as rope attachment points)





I wouldn't want to do the freeway with this rig, but surface streets were ok.

New cabinet survived the trip (ok, ok, the armchair came via truck)

Running the speed bumps on my street was pretty comic, I must admit. Had to brace my shoulders against the cabinet or get slammed forward into the tank every time I came off one.

Nemo, you are now the coolest... (SSS, you're demoted-) I love people who can innovate and survive!

Looks like you're about ready for touring in the 3rd world! the only other thing you need is a goat strapped to the side-rack and a large bucket hanging from the bars!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

LMAO

I think you need a little more rope there, CowGirl!

Or maybe your ancestors were prospectors and you have "pack mule" in your blood.

When are you moving to the 3rd world and carrying four kids on your bike?
