    Back in 1980 I used a device in which the front tire is held by a bracket and lines from from each handlebar end to the ends of the rear bumper of the vehicle. I removed the chain from the rear sprocket and took a 1961 BSA DBD34 from Homestead to Texas. No problem except when my wife decided to back up to get the car closer to the gas pump! I was amazed that I was able to pick up the rear of the bike while screaming at her to "stop" before she backed over my Goldstar!! If you do use one I suggest make certain it fits both the car and the bike and is well-made! Also a note taped to the dash saying "DO NOT BACK UP" in giant red letters may be appropriate!

    Thanks for the information. I stand corrected ! I took a minute to look up their website, and it is a nice trailer. Made of heavy steel and there are ample photos and testimonials of people using it for large heavy Harleys.

    I actually think I might order one of these after the first of the year as it will solve a couple of vexing problems of logistics I have been having.

    There is no way in hell I'd use the hitch one, and I'd only feel slightly better using the trailer in the bag.

    Just rent a u-haul trailer if your need for trailer, but lack of space, is that imperative.

    Edit: Holy moly, $1200-$2600 for the trailer in a bag?
