try mounting off of a trailer hitch kit, will require a little fab work tho.
That would be my suggestion.

I have seen many bicycle racks mounted on auto's using the standard receiver hitch on the vehicle.



I would be careful leaning too far, as to "drag your pegs", as the extra width of the bicycle on the back may actually drag sooner than the pegs.

I would love to see a bicycle towed by it's front wheel with the rear wheel as a trailer, not sure if the tire would last long though.

Others have mounted the bike vertically from a reciever hitch facing the sky.

Sounds like a trailer might be a consideration for your life style.:waving:

A trailer is a good way to go... You can store extra STUFF that might be needed...

Harbor Freight has a trailer for around $150. A lot of people use one with a cartop carrier attached for their gear. This could be a good all around utility trailer.

I seem to remember someone building a trailer for a dirtbike to be towed behind a GL1200... It had a solid axle and was built basicly in the shape of a "T" using 2" steel tubing with braces coming from the rear wheels to about a foot from the front of the hitch. A nice little set-up for about $125.00 I believe....:cool:If yer good with a welder, this might be the way to go!!:coollep:

If you are going to leave your bike unattended at a trail head, I recommend you remove anything of value, including your side panels and removable plastics.
