|Matt79||I dont know about the handy hauler... that looks crazy. I do have a full size truck (I live in Mississippi, everyone including my grandmother has a full size truck) but I have never tried to load it in the back. Im just afraid i will lay it over and mess the bike and truck paint up both.|

The Handi Hauler is another option.
Not sure how it would affect the drive train on a shaft driven bike on a long trip.
I would use it to get mine home if stranded on the side of the road though.

yeah a buddy of mine has one that was used to haul dirtbikes.It is made of aluminum and pretty lightweight,as for blocking the taillights ,i would put a couple of trailer lights on the back and plug it into the car wiring harness.

hmm. thanks for the info on that. of course that may be different from state to state but its still a real concern. Plus it blocks your tail lights. Its a great idea because you dont have to worry bout the trailer.
Has anyone ever actually used one of these?

Looks like the load is wider than the legal limits. Not really sure what the limits are.
Sec. 42-352. - Projecting loads on passenger vehicles.
No passenger-type vehicle, except motorcycles or bicycles, shall be operated on any highway with any load carried thereon extending beyond the line of the fenders on the left side of such vehicle nor extending more than six inches beyond the line of the fenders on the right side thereof.
