I will be driving to SoCal next summer from Central Texasand might be buying a second vehicle on the way(3/4 ton Suburban) and towing my Nissan Xterra the rest of the way. I planned on using a tow dolly for the X so I would need a way to haul the Zed as well. This seemed like a feasable way to accomplish this.

The hauler is rated at 500#, which puts it right above the 2010's weight.

Thoughts?

500 pounds is bornerline, I might look into one that's a bit stronger. You see ones with Harley's on them so they have to be strong enough. I have used those types of haulers with dirt bikes before but never a streetbike. For that long of a haul I would want something pretty robust.

The weight rating did concern me a bit, tht is why I asked before I dropped the bike doing 70 on the interstate.

I will look a bit harder for a sturdier version.

Maybe not that specific one, but I've seen a couple guy carry their R1 and Gixxers on those... worked out fine. But those bikes also weight a little less than the Zed. I'd go for a sturdier, higher rated one just for assurance.

If you can get access to a pick up the black widow motorcycle ramps are great. Can ride up and down the ramp onto the bed.

If Im reading this right

he is taking the xterra with the bike on it AND buying a burban on the way so it would be

Burban towing the Xterra with the z on a hitch mounted hauler.....>

That trailer in a bag looks pretty cool. But alas, a trailer wont work for me, as has already been pointed out, unless the states I am going through allow towing of two items behind one vehicle. Hmmmmm
