I have a bike hauler that attaches to the hitch. Kinda like you see for the dirt bikes. I've used this things about 20 times already and not a single problem. I carried a 04 1000 from Dallas with it on my 2001 jeep grand cherrokee.

something like this but mine is rated for 600lbs

You will need a trailer. maybe a small one just for the bike but that's what I would do.

Just borrow a trailer... I bet you find someone near by your house willing to let you borrow a small trailer.

Lay the bricks flat in the bed, as few layers as possible, cover the bed completely. Roll the bike on top of the bricks like they are a Bed liner. Set the wheelbarrow off to the side, take the swing to a scrap yard and tell your dad it blew out on the road.

OR... bike in bed, then use trailer for the work stuff... so it's easier to load/unload.
Maybe with Uhaul you could leave the trailer there when done?

I'm sure they play it safe with hitch racks... but I cringe at the result of a failer.

i bet your bike will fit well under the wheel barrow, just cover your bike with a big blanket and strap it down well. Strap the bench to the roof...real talk!

I also saw a nice trailer for sale in Conroe off First near 336 loop.

Uhaul has a cheap motorcycle/utility trailer with ramp and strap points.

I would be scared to haul a street bike on one of those.

+1 on uHaul. They have small trailers at very reasonable prices.

I wouldn't use a Harbor Freight one, but the Mototote works great. I've used one for years.

Tojo92, That one looks a lot stronger. Looks like the tailgate has to be removed because to the handlebar correct?

No, not at all. The tailgate was off because of the bikes in the bed. It hauled just fine with the tailgate. Also was fine with my Suburban.
