I know right, $30K bike being pulled on a MotoTote. Just sounds wrong

I probably would strap the rear down differently, and not around the carbon exhaust sheild and big dollar exhaust pipes.

i used to haul my dirtbike around on one on the back of my bronco. id put any bike up there on the back of an excursion, or 3/4 ton suv, but it would be strapped down differently than in the pic.

is that an expedition or explorer?

you should have the straps to the rear going the other way. too many straps pulling in one direction could cause the front wheel to walk over the chock. maybe connect to the pegs and pull towards the back of the bike?

on my dirtbike, i would hook the handlebars, and take a second strap and run it from one peg, under the rail to the other peg. then jump on the bike and pull the strap tight to keep the suspension loaded in the rear.

Works fine that way. That is not a chock on the front, it's a hoop. If the front goes over that your probably upside down!
But to add, there is a strap on the inside of the hitch hauler from the rear to the hook on the class III.
That was not the only time I hauled the beastly girl, just the longest.
Yes I ride to get to places when I can! 25k miles in less than 3 years I think I am allowed to tow her if I want!
