Re: Bike Transport: Feasible option?
First off these will only be for a class 3 or higher receiver hitch. You will not be able to get more than a class 2 for the above mentioned cars.
That brings me to the second thing. You are talking about putting a 400lb. bike approx. 1-2 feet off the back of a sedan that is barley rated for that much load in the trunk. The load from that much weight with that kind of leverage would likely have the front tires off the ground.
One last thing im not sure of the load rating for this one specifically but most are onlt rated for average weight of a dirt bike.
IMO your best bet is to save this money and find a small pickup for using to haul the bike around. Or at the least put the hitch on the car and get a small trailer.
