Absolutely, but... as YOU well know... that goes with the world of two-wheel riding... motorized or not... and ANY size!

Traffic is a lot more dense today than it was just a few years ago...

Ride carefully, whatever you choose to ride!

Hate to be a spoiler but that was the problem I encountered with my rack and I too considered it harmless at first. Sadly, a little teetering tends to grow to medium, then to annoying, then to dangerous with wear. My well built rack now occupies a spot on the pile of good ideas at the time.

A LightWeight Low Priced Alternative

Check out these Kits for use on a Bicycle-with a little 25cc Motor they can attain speeds up to 30mph and 200+ mpg. All told, Bike and motor may weigh between 40-50 pounds. I am buying a kit for my 26" Folding Bike and when folded, the complete unit is a footprint 32"x32"x12".

How bout a truck ?

I have seen motorcycles in the beds of pickup trucks pulling airstreams. I have seen full sized dirt bikes and quads strapped in this way.

Maybe I should have looked at what you have for a tow vehicle. A truck seems to be, at least one way.
