Hitch carriers are a great way to transport your motorcycle. They allow you to tow the bike behind your truck or SUV, which means no need to lift it up and into the bed of your vehicle.
However, there are a few things to consider before you decide on a hitch carrier. These include:
The weight of your motorcycle. If your motorcycle weighs less than 500 pounds and is less than 80 inches long, then most hitch carriers will work just fine. However, if your bike is heavier or longer than that, then you may need to invest in a more expensive model with additional features like ramps and tie-down straps for added support and strength.
Your budget and the amount of storage space available in your vehicle. Some models are cheaper than others and some require additional accessories like ramps or tie-down straps that can increase their price tag significantly depending on how many extras you need for them to work properly.
