Ghetto Racing setup

Here's my setup, it sucks, but I'm limited by garage space and my company vehicle. The positive side is I don't pay for the car, insurance, maintenance or gas.

Hey man no matter how it looks it all gets you to the track just the same. Enclosed trailers and trucks are nice, but if you don't got one who cares as long as you can get out there. I still am stuck with only BH farms cuz I don't even have a trailer yet. I drive the bike out there in the morning from Roscoe and then get it all prepped.

I think you should probably have some sort of chocking device for the front wheel.

This is my Getto set up. I have no room just like The Pro8 since I live in the city also. All my stuff fits inside my Tahoe. Ezup, CRF 50, cooler, tent, tool box, stands, gearbag, and GF. I strap her to the luggage rack lol










I can do 95 mph with the bike on the mototote and get to Jennings Florida in about 11 hours if I am moving.

Oh I do.....2x4s....like I said ghetto racing. It's just to keep the from wheel from sliding to the side. This winter I will be buying a condor chock though.

I have actually come pretty far considering I started the season with nothing but a bike. Now I have full camping gear, all my own racing gear, tools, trailer, ez up, hitch on my car, pit bike, stands, and some other things. Tony was the one that gave me the "ghetto racing" nickname.

So that's what the mototote looks like, looks pretty good! i'm suprised that it's held on by just one point on the hitch. doesn't that make to prone to rock left n right though?

My friend has used one of these on his explorer. He has hauled his DUC all over including all the way out to AZ and back. No issues.

Are you sure the company policy covers towing? It may not. For example, you can rent a van from enterprise, but they don't cover towing.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I work for a fleet leasing company, that car may be through us.. Not sure whoever is in charge of your company cars would like that you are towing. haha

he pays for a personal use clause, so I would think that would cover personal use.

I laugh everytime this picture gets posted because I know exactly where that is. It's down in Carbondale, IL along a frontage road that leads to two different bike shops.
