Just wondered what you had ended up doing with transporting your bike and how it all worked out?

me too, I am looking at a similiar situation. An older Yamaha or Honda trail bike in the 100-250 cc range. A good way to carry it would be helpful. I have an Excursion with a big back end, and I would still have to lay it in there or the trailer.

I saw a picture, maybe linked to from on here a long while back, of a guy who cut the tongue and extended it, putting himself a motorcycle carrier on the front of the trailer, but right by the shell. Since it was toward the shell rather than toward the truck, it reduced somewhat the amount of additional tongueweight.

Now that I think about it, I think the guy may have set an Airstream shell on a much heavier frame. But anyway, it worked. Lotta work though.

Actually, maybe it was this one. If not, one similar.

Good luck!

I've seen guys show up at races with the bikes tie-downed to the tops of their vehicles! Last one was a volvo station wagon from VT...wish I had my camera with me...he unloaded it forward into the bed of another truck and then down to the ground on a ramp.

Don't try this one at home... Ouch!



I like the above prototype...I've seen similar vintage models on Ebay with side doors.
