Default Re: What’s Best Equip. for Car Carrying Motorized Bike?

I have an old strap-to-the-trunk style rack I need to replace the straps on... they're all old and fraying out. The couple of time's I've gotten a ride I've flagged down a pick-up truck and ridden in the back with it to keep it upright. Once I got it most of the way home on the carrier on the front of the bus.

I've looked at a number of hitch-racks (even though I don't have a hitch on the car - yet), and the biggest problem I've seen so far is the max. weight they can carry. Most are limited to around 130 lbs. I haven't had a chance to weigh Harley59's ride but it's probably over 60 lbs., and my beast weighs in at 84 lbs according to the shipping scale at work.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.

My Builds: My Beast, Harley59's bike, my Cruiser
