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.
I would have told him its as stable as a Harley on a trailer on the way to Daytona.
Germany has a well known system of high speed highways, known as autobahns.From what I remember from the 11 years driving there, is that any motor vehicle only requires a minimum speed of 60 KPH (41 mph) to drive on them. Even a Vespa PX 80 (80cc) is legal there, and mine is 150CC.This tale of having only big bikes on the Interstates is just that, old tales. I have never felt unsafe on any of my bikes, even in 30 mph crosswinds or headwinds, either here or abroad. Yes, it gets exciting in those conditions, of course, and it all boils down to whether or not you know what you are capable of dealing with, regardless of the size or weight of bike or car.
I'm more nervous riding around Fort Walton Beach than I ever would be on the highway. LOL! I have found most routes through neighborhoods to avoid the "tourist" roads, but they can't be avoided if you want to go out onto Okaloosa Island or Navarre Beach.
Hey Kev, do you get any trailer buffeting that way??

There is no shame in trailering your bike to Daytona. Ya gotta consider that these guys (and gals) are coming from Ohio and Pennsylvania in late winter where there is quite likely still snow on the ground.Regarding trailering your bike to The Black Hills or Zion, how is that worse than flying and renting a bike?It’s all good.I have never trailered a bike in half a million miles of riding, but I get it.It keeps the wife happy. It keeps your back happy. You have 6000 miles of tire, but it is a 6500 mile trip.Nobody likes crossing the prairie or desert in August.It’s all good. As my dad used to tell me, “Son, make yourself happy”.
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 Norge doesn't like strong crosswinds or semis. My T-3 is much better in those conditions. GliderJohn
Can't say yet, but about to try on our Defender with the Ducati.NJ Nick carries his Aprilia on one and seems happy with it.So fingers crossed.
