    There is a definite advantage to overbuilding.

    No photo shop, This is a standard hauler with a 1000 pound motorcycle on it.

    Any Questions?:lol

    Your poor hitch. Damn that's a lot of levered weight. Did you drive your truck over some speed bumps just to see what would happen?

    This truck drove as if it was not even on there. I did not hit any bumps, nor any drag races.

    How does it handle on the highway with uneven roads? I'd probably want to throw some padding between the bike and your gate in case of movement. I'm always leary of these types of haulers under road conditions when the bike starts lurching back and forth. I would think a 2nd anchor point and double strapping would be ideal for safety if you loose a strap or one snaps for whatever reason.

    Otherwise looks pro.

    We actually had 2 tie downs on both sides before I drove it. (Ancra Ratchet type)

    This was a demonstration more then a suggestion for application.

    I would not suggest using this for hauling a wing mostly due to how difficult it was to get it up there.

    Is the Busa a longer wheelbase than the 'Wing?

    OK, that's all well and good.
    But... I would really like to see ya build a trailer for the Wing to haul that Dodge around on.

    No, really... That's awesome Robert.
    What a sales pitch (business card?) for OverHaased Haulers!

    What next? A Boss Hoss?

    I wanna see a video of you getting the bike ON the carrier. Not that I don't believe the pic, but loading that sucker up sure would get MY adrenaline level up.

    Nestor is interested in one for his ST1300 ... But his Silverado has a Leer shell....appears the handle bar/front & rear crash bars will hit the shell and tailgate. Sleep on it and let me know what you come up with :biggrin
