Has anyone ever used one of these?




Since these are ~$400 to buy, I think I could make my own for less than $100. I'm just not sure how much damage it will cause to the drivetrain of my bike...any thoughts?

According to the website http://www.motorcycleramps.com/motorcycle_caddy.htm
the chain "may" need to be removed for long distance transport. What do you think they consider "long distance". >50 miles?? >100?? I plan on taking my bike w/ me on weekend trips visiting family/friends (about 90 miles of Turnpike driving) but do not want to compromise the Duc.

Looks like a good idea, but I think it has a little more development to go. Like a dolly/wheel system for the rear wheel?

Caution when towing most bikes. The trans primary gears and bearings are lubricated with engine running . Towing with back wheel on the ground with the chain attached turns the gears and bearings and can ruin your trans.
