This is exactly what I will be doing in August. Also why I bought the KLX300SM (besides being a cool bike). Going to New England to spend time with my parents while I still can. The only bike I could ride there would be the Harley and I don't fancy riding through the northeast when I am used to riding on deserted roads here. There are many receiver hitch carriers out there from the $100 HF one I have to $800 jobs designed to carry heavier bikes behind motorhomes. If it was something I was going to do full time I would mount additional receivers along the frame rails of the truck to create 3 points of contact with the rail for added stability and more tie down points.Here it is with my Van Van loaded. I added the extra LED trailer lights to it after this test fit.That's what I'm talkin' about! There is no way I am riding the Van Van to the places I want to camp.
When it comes to interstate travel with gusty crosswinds, semis, etc. I'll take a Centauro, Sport, or the Mighty Scura every time. They don't seem to get blown around like the touring barges to me. Admittedly, my experience of tourers are Harley and my old R100RT, though. <shrug>
The T-3 has a low center of gravity...I believe this helps A LOT!
Anybody have any 'sperience with the bumper hitch carrier? Riding my ass off and wearing out MC tires just to get to a destination to ride becomes less fun all the time. The F-150 cab seems more comfy.
It happened.......... Was getting fuel, and a conversation began. ( Started by a rider of that Big American Twin ) What is it? , Is that small bike stable on the Interstate? I was riding my V11 Coppa.
John, I've had a Versa-Haul hitch carrier since 2003. I've hauled all over the country with it.Largest bike I've hauled was the Nero Corsa from NWA to DC.Contact me offline if you want more info on using them.
I have come to appreciate the foamy center tank pad strip on my Ď01 V11 Sport for tucking in behind the flyscreen for my one-hour-each-way commute on the Southern California freeways. It actually has a function! Staying ahead of the charging lemmings and riding in the open spaces between traffic clusters necessitates cruising around 90mph. Tucking in helps with the buffeting, and is not uncomfortable for me. I think cruise control would be a nice thing to have to be able to shake out my right hand, but I do not have that. What I find a little odd is there is a stretch of highway (the 605 S between the 210 and the 60) where the buffeting increases dramatically, yet the trees look still so itís not caused by the wind. I tuck in for pretty much that whole stretch and it helps stabilize the bike, which is already pretty stable. Because of that road I have also begun to wear earplugs!I would not hesitate to ride that bike on tours, though I wish I could get more distance between fill-ups. I would be concerned to be stranded on some of the 200+ distances between gas stations that exist in the west. That bike sucks up the gas pretty good.
Mike, I was actually hoping you'd see this and tell me yours is for sale

not for sale, but could be bought. We can talk. I haven't used it in a few years, since the last V7 Classic sold.
Hi Kev , What's the limit on the Carrier, I wonder if my V11 at 500Lbs + , ~ would work? I would put on a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
I'll bet you could "WHEELIE" that SUV under the right circumstances!!
Finally tested the new hitch carrier with Jenn's Duc and the D110.Just loaded it and took it around the block a couple of times. But cautiously optimistic this is going to work out for us.We went with:BlackWidow SMC-600rhttps://www.blackwidowpro.com/motorc...rs/p/smc-600r/I have to say the D110 didn't seem to know or care it was there. To use it properly I'm going to have to remove the right side rider's peg to keep it from contacting the spare and I'm going to triple-check the tie-downs, but otherwise it looks like we should be good to go.Besides using it for this trip it will be nice to know it's available should any of our svelte Italian girls require a rescue (or the same for any of our friends).
Get one of those roof rack baskets and put the spare tire up there. It's not like you or the misses are going to change a tire yourselves on a range rover. The one thing I like about my rack is that you don't have to back the bike off. load it under power and unload under power. But, mine is only rated for 400 lbs which works well for my 300 lb bikes.
Ha ha we had a flat the first few months we owned it and the tailgate looks HORRIBLE with just the empty carrier on it. So much so my youngest complained about riding in Mom's "ghetto" car. PS, she called ME and I changed it lol.
If anyone was interested the carrier worked fantastically for a good nearly 400 mile run yesterday. The Land Rover didn't even notice it back there.Very pleased.Now Jenn and I can leave the Rover and the kids with family and head off for a couple of days on our bikes.
I always thought those were so wild. I would think you would get a lot of twisting movement while moving. Was that a issue at all? I know I would never want to put my 02 stone on it... but looks like a nice setup that would allow me to travel wit a smaller duel sport.
Im a little surprised you couldnít tell it was even there. I had a carrier on the back of my Grand Cherokee with some gear and a couple MT bikes and it made a noticeable difference in the handling. Maybe itís suspension is lighter than your SUV?
Kev , I wonder if the wild stallion would ride on that carrier ? Dusty
