Hey everybody.

Any of you know of a bike carrier that hitches in the trailer hitch of
an SUV where the bike rests on a rail but is suspended off the ground
similar to the moto tote? I was wondering if this set up is a good
alternative to doing a conventional trailer for the RC.

Re: Trailer (v-2 superbike)

Well I see these setups at the track all the time. I suppose they work fine, but I have never seen a big RC51 mounted on one, but I am sure it would work fine.

Re: Trailer (v-2 superbike)

like this?

http://www.mototote.com/

i've seen their ads in the back of Cycle World and Rider . . . but haven't had the chance to inspect one up close. they seem (in theory) like a good idea just don't know of the 'real world' functionality/if there are problems/etc.

if anyone on this board has one, i would love to hear about pros/cons.

Re: Trailer (clarythedrill)

I would love to get one, but my 4runner can't handle the tongue weight.


It would be cool to have because you don't have to stick to "trailer speeds" (often 55 mph). and it's smaller than a regular trailer so easier to store.

Since I can't do that, I may pick up one of these:
Port-a-chopper

or

Stinger Trailer

or

Trailer in a Bag

I need to weigh how often I'd use it. Could go really cheap:

Harbor Freight

but I don't have that much room to store it


There is always the option to get a heavier duty bumper so I could get the moto-tote

Re: Trailer (Wild Child)

I don't know that I would push much faster than 55 with one of those. Even at that speed, you've changed the CG significantly enough to affect the handling quite a bit.

I pull my trailer at 75 MPH all the time. It has 13" wheels and is a stout 5x10 utility. Easier and safer loading than a pick-up. I wouldn't hang my bike on the back of a vehicle on a bet.
