I like this brand. I've been using it for many years. Good solid design.

FYI

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/1634196586.html

Not mine, and I don't know the seller, but that is a very fair price is it is the one for full size bikes. I had an earlier dirt bike model and any size over a 160 rear didn't quite fit, but was workable with some cushioning and a good tie down on the rear wheel.

The older ones had to be shimmed instead of the no-wobble design, but it may be upgradeable.

Pace 20' V-Nose.
Painted the interior (oil-based floor paint on the floor decking) and installed 3 rows of a-track.

I have Pit-Bull chock used with custom brackets the clip into the a-track allowing me to place tie-down points whereever requried.

I also own a Moto-Tote for quick trips where I'm only carrying one bike.

The pic is from Moto-tote's site but I've carried both my RC51 and my CBr1100xx on it without issue.

You should really have a Class IV hitch or better to use one to carry a sportbike or consider using suspension bags if your vehicle was not deisgned for this kind of tongue weight.

Wow, I just checked Moto-Tote's site and had no idean they have completely redesigned the carrier.

To be honest I would be hesitant to use the new design. Just looks to flimsey to me..
