|bryanJK||I recently moved from FL to CA this past fall. I towed my HD Sportser on a 5x8 utility trailer all the way, about 2400 miles. JK sport with a speed 6 manual w/tow package, sucked on the hills but we made it. Find a cheap utility trailer, throw a sheet of plywood on the bottom and get a cheep motorcycle wheel chock from HF. Buy some good quality tie down straps also. I used 4 up front (2 on each side of the forks) and one in the rear. With the bike, trailer and other crap it was probably about 1100 lbs.|

Look around at the local farm and fleet/tractor supply. There are small utility trailers that can be had for not much $$$.
Some of them are small enough that you can tip it on end in the garage so that itr does not take up much room. It will also have plenty of other uses too.

I could actually see someone doing that and ripping the forks out of the triple clamps and running over their own bike, thinking WTF just happened...

I just keep picturing the bike tipping over and dragging it, getting to my destination only to find a couple of foot pegs left... LOL.

Here's another option.... although more risky, just remove the chain or belt.

Then you may want to search craigslist for something used... many for sale that were only used once or twice.
Maybe one you can fold up and put away...

|chemmick||I'm working at a church camp in MI this summer and I want both my jeep and bike there. It's just a long ride on my bike. I've done it before, but I've also got caught in the rain on 2 separate trips and that just sucks.|

A Honda shadow is a street bike... just hop on and ride it.
Why do you need a trailer?

|chemmick||Any suggestions for a trailer?|

|Gumbys69||That's a lot of weight to put on a hitch especially if it's not a JKU for stability reasons. Unfortunately your best bet is a little trailer.|

I really want to find a way to carry my motorcycle on the back of my 2007 Jeep Wrangler. My bike (a 1987 Honda Shadow 750) weighs 530 lbs., and I really don't want to use a trailer. Any suggestions? Thanks!
