Does anyone use their motorbike to carry their (non motorised) bike?

I used to do some mountain biking about 10-15 years ago and quite fancy getting back into it, I have access to a car for a few hours at a time but other than that just have my 2 (motor)bikes.

Can anyone suggest/recommend a bicycle carrier/rack for a motorbike? The only ready made one I can find is the 2x2 carrier made in the US, can't believe no-one else makes one!? Neutral

Local trails and trail centres close to me will be good for now but I'd want to go a bit further eventually, to some of the better trail centres in the UK, or abroad - I have visions of riding down to the Dolomites on a KTM 990 adventure with a MTB strapped to the back to ride once there Mr. Green Cool

It would fit in a trailer if you took wheels off.
You can legally tow a small trailer, but would you want to.
Seem to remember seeing an attachment to carry a surf board on one side, which is possibly even more awkward.

I'm watching this thread purely out of interest, and for laughs.


But unless it's a folding one, I'd say trailer.

See this is what I was thinking:

Probably wouldn't be too hard to make one up myself from a bike roof rack and top box mounting.

Old Thread Alert!

The last post was made 1 year, 98 days ago. Instead of replying here, would creating a new thread be more useful?
