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.

I thought getting caught in the rain is where the bikers and the wannabes go separate ways!!!!!!!!!

Springtail 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.

What? Find the bike under the rear tire?... what do you want for 70 bucks.

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...

Oops... thought I had it covered with "belt" ... how difficult is it to remove the shaft?

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.

m998dna 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...

Folding motorcycle trailer for cruiser bikes ,sportbikes or dirtbikes

panthermark Harbor Freight folding trailer is what I use. Make sure you get the one with 12" wheels, and make sure you use a 20% or 25% off coupon.

m998dna A Honda shadow is a street bike... just hop on and ride it.

Why do you need a trailer?

The tongue weight rating on the JKU hitch is 350 lbs.

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!
