Motorcycle carrier

Would you feel safe hauling a bike from Georgia to Chicago on one of the hitch mounted motorcycle carriers? I had a moto-tote once upon a time and hauled my TZ to the track a few times but I don't seem to recall if I had any problems or not. I sure the fuck aint going to haul a bigass trailer to GA and back.

It'll be fine. Steve hauled his bikes w/ a mototote for awhile, and he drives like the nutcase he is. It even hauled my 749R from FL to Chicago with no incidents.

g2g used one of those for a long time. I'm sure it will be fine assuming it's in good mechanical shape (not rusted), and you are putting it on something other than a car.
