Yes. The downside is you lose some living space to the bikes. May not be a problem. I know guys who take better care of their bikes than they do their women. Maybe that's why their bikes last longer than their women  Roll Eyes

That's really true too often.

Ok, we all know you can't add much more than a feather pillow to the back of a GM bus without splitting the coach in half.  So what about the front?  Back in the old days.... 4 bikes in the back of the truck and one on the front bumper in the wheel racks that attached to the bumper.  So will the front of a bus hold a bike if a rack system was made to hang off the front bumper?  Gives the extra advantage of being able to see the bike at all times.

Hanging a motorcycle on the front of a vehicle, if it obstructs the headlights in any way, is grounds for a visit w/ the CHP here in Californication

FWIW & HTH. . .

RJ, do you think a small trailer of 1500 lbs would be ok behind us with out a trailer toad or helper hitch?

Marc  you might have to remove the mirrors to get it in the bay.


as to pulling a trailer on the 4905. If the hitch is on right no problem.

I pull a large double axle behind HUGGY a 4104. I bring some times as many as 6 dirt bikes and street bikes to Daytona bike week.

The 04 is highly modified 6v92 and v730, rear door removed to give two windows for the bed room. been like this for over 12 years,never broke yet. Knock on wood,which is my head i guess.

It may fall apart the next time I do it but I have been pulling a 14x7 enclosed cargo trailer with a BMW 1100 GS in it for 14 years and never had a problem.
