    I vaguely remember the first test drive with the bike on front and nothing in the bed or being pulled, and I don't remember any issues. I only need the front carrier when I'm pulling a trailer.

    In CA, we have a reduced speed limit on the freeway when towing a trailer (55mph vs. 65mph). Additionally, the pooolice are less lenient on the trailer speed limit so lets say fair speed difference is about 59mph to about 73ish. This makes the hitch mount a lot more tolerable for a long trip.

    BTW, here's a pic of my homemade unit. It is raised up because I originally made it for my F250 crew LB which was super long. Center support is still low, but everything else is raised about 8 inches.

    why tow your car when you can tow you truck with your bike.
