I've got an extra one that I got in a trade, it's pretty solid. $50 and it's yours.

Are you looking for a bumper carrier? They all tend to teeter a little bit, but if they are strapped well should not be any issues. I bought the one from Northen Tool and it served its purpose until I got a trailer. Depending on the bike wieght there is a stabilizer kit you can get to help strengthen them up, I know that Cycle Gear normally keeps them in stock and also has the stabilizer bars. The Harbor Freight ones work fine as well, especially for the price. Do you want the tray(channel type) or the adjustable bars to help lock the wheels down? Is this for the BMW or DRZ?

I stock the Cycle Country motorcycles carrier. It's capacity is 400 lbs. It retails for $249, but I'll get you the Motohouston discount. If you want a good one, I also stock the Versa Haul carrier that is rated for 500 lbs. It retails for $500. 936-756-9711 Ask for Bill in parts.

This is for the DRZ attaching to a class 3 hitch.

Cycle Shack North in Conroe. I know a lot of members from working with them at Wild West Honda for the last 8 years. I recently moved over here. If you guys need anything let me know, always happy to help Motohouston.
