Hauling a Motorcycle

Hello Hello,

Recent purchase of a Motorcycle. Just spent more than I should on the bike and now looking for all my options to haul it around. I've looked at trailers and hitch mounts. I'm wondering if anyone on here with bike has any advice or suggestions as to how I should go abouts doing it.

(poor quality photo, high quality bike )


Cheers

I think that bike is going to be to heavy for a hitch mount. You will most likely be limited to hauling it with a trailer.

Nice bike btw.

I think the tongue weight for our Mopar 2 inch receiver is 500 lbs. How much does the motorcycle and a hitch-carrier weigh?

I can't see your pic but I use my hitch mount for moving my dirtbike. It weighs 250lbs and I still get nervous.

If you have anything heavier I suggest a trailer

Dry weight is right around 250/275. I'm not sure about the hitch mount. I found smaller utility trailer 4x8/4x7 for around $300-$400 on Craigslist and will probably end up with that.

Second note..any one selling a hitch?

The bike is a KTM 525 xc-w

towing a 'cycle

I have used a 4x8 harbor freight trailer, and recently moved to a "Stinger" MC-specific trailer. The latter is much easier to load-unload, and folds.
