Well looks like it very well might work for you then. Perhaps to lighten the load a little, keep the gas tank empty when transporting. A full gas tank is almost 40 lbs.

Lets see some pics if you get it!

Re: anybody use this type of hitch-haul-thing

If you put that on the back of a truck rather than the bike in the bed, we cant be friends anymore because Ill be ashamed to be seen with you...

Ive seen those at the track though, they work, but get the good one for AT LEAST 2 inch hitch (Class 3+ I think)

Re: anybody use this type of hitch-haul-thing

I used the versahaul with my Suburban to carry my '08 gsxr1000 about 400 miles. Worked great. I was nervous that a ratchet strap would let loose, but it was about as secure as putting it on a trailer. Didn't budge.
