Undertaker towing system?

Who would use one of these things in their right mind? Can you imagine how many tires you'd be going through

You could buy a rock hard touring tire and a spare wheel and change it out, but why not just buy a trailer from Harbor Freight?

We had a customer bring his big a$$ Vulcan up to the shop on one of those things. Let me be the first to say it was a pain in the a$$ to get that thing off. It may look easy from their website and video but it it aint. I would never use one of those things...ever

If I was going to wear out my tire, chain and sprockets, I would rather be doing it while riding it.

Tire wears faster if you put loads on it. As for towing or pulling, it shouldn't be too much.

Not saying I want to use one of those to tow my bike though.

+1

You will damage your transmission before you have to worry about your tires. The only solution would be to remove your chain.
