Dirtbike hitch I could borrow

I'll be going to Dallas for Christmas between December 20-25th.

Anyone got a dirtbike hitch/hauler i could borrow. Not a trailer, but the ones where i can just attach to the back of an SUV.

How big of a dirtbike? I don't have one specifically made for dirt bikes, but I use a cargo carrier that I purchased from Harbor Freight. It can support up to 300lbs.

If you still need it, send me a PM.

I don't have a hitch, but I have a tiny trailer that your d-bike may fit on. I think it's only 6' long.

I've done this ride plenty of times, however, i will have a load of gifts i'll need to wrap, my dog, and one of my sisters will be tagging along.

So...this real rider wants to bring a bike to ride in the freezing temperatures they sure will be having up there!!!

Sounds like you need a trailer for the bike.

I appreciate it, but since I have never really towed a trailer before I'd be hesitant to try to do so.

There goes my opportunity to get to meet ya!

Correction: 500lb Max Capacity.

Not sure how it would work, but your more than welcome to try it.

This is the same one that I have, not my picture

It looks like it would be fairly dificult to load and unload. Thanks for the thought.

I THINK it's 5'x6'. You can fit as many as you're willing to stack!

Honestly - It really depends on the size of the bikes. My SV fits on it diagonally
