Moto-tote

I havé a Georgetown 338 2010 and want to carry my motocycle on a Carrier fixed on the hitch.
The Wright of the cycle is approx 450 pounds
plus the carrier is 65 pounds
Anyone has experienced this before?
Thanks

My uncle used to carry a 200 pound bike on his front bumper, 66 model truck that could do it. Biggest problem is you need two or more to load, steady, and secure. Same for unloading. That is also over 500 pounds of "tongue weight" on that hitch. One last thing, if that is the "book" weight on your bike, add 30 or more pounds for gas and oil, and then add anything you may have put on it, saddle bags, windshield, etc. I wouldn't, but that is my opinion, your mileage may vary.
