Towing your bike...

I am thinking about trading in my car and get something different. I'm thinking about getting either a truck or an suv, even though gas prices SUCK!! but I was wondering if anyone here has a car with a hitch and tow their bike that way.


Thanks

YEA... I saw that @ the track day.. I was amazed to see that car tow a bike. I have a TC and I would kill Taylor if he wanted to put a trailer in the back... Thats why he got a truck..:icon_bigg

If you need a hitch for your vehicle, give Masterhitch a call, great shop. Good luck.

Here's another use for the hitch.

a TL should be fine. you can get hitches for it...just search, i saw 3 styles in 1 minute of searching. i pull my bike with a 95 M3 with a dalan hitch, it has no problem, other than a couple less mpg when towing.
