add-on so that the Moto Carrier can be used on any vehicle with a tow package.

both 2 x 2 and 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 inch tongues. The standard length of the tongue
is 12 inches. If you need a custom length to fit your needs we can provide
this at minimal cost. The picture shows a 15 inch tongue that I use on my car
so that the unit extends beyond my spare tire.
you drive off with the bike in gear, you will damage the bike.
After you are finished
loading the bike, always take a last walk around the bike, pulling on the
straps and gently but firmly rocking the bike to make sure it is secure.
Double check that the bike is in neutral, the loading ramp has been removed,
the ratchet levers closed and the loose ends of the tie down straps secured.
is classified as a Solid Tongue Non-Hinged Tow Bar and is Federal CFR Title
49, Sec 393.70 compliant.
Because the Cycle-Tow is a non-hinged tow bar, the hinge
point for towing is in the steering tube (front fork area) of the motorcycle.
This means the bike will castor behind the tow vehicle, and there will be some
lean with the turns. This is due to the fork rake, and is normal. Having said
that, larger radius turns are better than tight turns. It is best to avoid cul
de sacs, and tight turns whenever possible and plan your loading in the
direction you will be towing. Tight turns strain the tie down straps and could
possibly push the hard ends of the hooks into the tank or other areas that
could be scratched or damaged. I always use soft cinch straps to keep the
hooks away from the bike. Many bikes with fairings, wind screens and other
accessories may need soft cinch straps to facilitate a proper tie down. If you
must back-up, remember that the Cycle-Tow acts like a small trailer and can
jackknife very quickly. Plan your driving maneuvers accordingly. As you can
see from the photographs we have reflectors on the tie down bar but no lights.
Most states do not require lights on trailers that are narrower than 4 feet,
since the tow vehicle's lights can be seen.
