Bertha the Bigfoot Camper gets a dingy. After my trip out West last Summer I wanted a way to park my camper and get further off the beaten path, to go places my truck and camper can’t go. It got me thinking about a motorcycle. After a bit or research I decided to look for a Honda XR650L. The Honda has a pretty good reputation / track record and the size was right, (I’m not 140 lbs anymore…). After a little searching, I located a 2003 for sale here in central Kentucky and bought it. I also bought a “Versa-Haul” hitch mounted motorcycle carrier and mounted it on the back of the F350. I took it out today for a test ride and the truck handled the bike well. A friend of mine owns a metal shop and I am going to have him make a metal security arm that will fit into the 2″ hitch at the back of the Versa-Haul. The arm will help secure the bike on the carrier better. The ratchet straps work well but my concern is… if they should malfunction…. the bike would fall off the carrier…. Does anyone have similar concerns? If you know of a good system to secure motorcycles to a hitch carrier please post you ideas / solutions below!
