Hitch huh? Curious to see pics of that. Does it tow the dirt bike well?
It'll tow 3 nicely. It is rated at 2000lbs tow capacity. Bikes curb weight it just over 200 a pop.
If i'm towing 3 bikes i usually have the other 2 riders drive separately to keep the weight down but take the gear with me.

I don't have any pics and it's winter so it may be a month or two till i get em back out for a ride.

It looks pretty slick sitting on the curb with a new KX 250 in tow. Really turns heads. So does the firewood, LOL.

^^^ What did the hitch setup run you? and are you lowered at all? Curious as to how a dropped sedan would perform with a bike in tow.

No i'm all stock. The hitch was between 200-275 canadian. It's been a while.

If you wanted one on a lowered car you'd need an offset mount. Depends on how low though as the receiver attachment on the hitch will be 2" below the rear skirt.
Once you take the mount slide out you can't really even see it on the car.

If wanted I don't mind doing a DIY with the measurment breakdown. If the general consenus wants one let me know and I can piece one together. I know the directions suck and it helps to know someone who has already gone through the motions.

I think it looks good. I'm a big believer in function over form. The carrier definitely serves its purpose.
