MotoTote looks nice. I use the Black Widow Steel rack MCC-600 to carry my bike to have it serviced as well. The aluminum version looks cooler but was 50.00 more which I put towards nice mighty-tie soft tie downs straps. Plus the alum version is only 1lb lighter.
The carrier is sturdy and well built, welds are good. I added 4" grip tape to the ramp and carrier for traction loading/unloading.
The rack weighs 100lbs, bike is around 400, my Silverado 4x4 receiver load rating is 600lbs. I added magnetic led tail lights to be visible/legal since the truck lights were partially blocked by the bike. Used black gorilla tape to insure the lights stayed in place.
I have 227.00 shipped in the rack, 35.00 for lights, 25.00 for misc. cable management, truck plug adapter, and 4" x 15' grip tape. Just shy of 290.00 all told.
Two person job to load unless you don't mind the possibility of being on youtube!
I wave to everyone on two wheels (unless it's a car).
