I had a moto-jack-rack and loved it...My problem was that I could only carry one bike with me and a couple of times need the back up after having problems or bending a set of bars....

I have well over a thousand miles on mine. I used to use a carrier called the "Joe Hauler", but carriers by Sarge are built better, comes with an anti-sway hitch pin that works, ramp and tie-down spots at both ends. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more info. Good luck regardless of what you choose to do. There are some good units out there.

DO THEY WORK? ANYONE HAVE ONE? DOES THE BIKE JUMP AROUND? WHATS THE BEST MODEL?
I have been using the original "Motocross-caddy" for at least 12 years with no problems at all!! The Moto Jack Rack is sweet!!!! But it's much heavier that the "Caddy". I bought the thing for $225.00 years ago and still use it today. What I like best about the caddy is that one bolt takes off the whole thing. It's really easy!!! I say get one.

It's somewhat unsettling watching your bike back there the first few times you use the rack. You get used to it, the carrier works great.

As our cars are smaller our tow ball (Hitch Pin) has a really low wieght limit.
For a large family saloon (Sedan) it can be as low as 50 kgs (2.2lbs to the Kg) and even on our 4x4's ie Isuzu, Mitsubishi Shoguns etc...it's only around 100-120 KGS
If you have a 15 Kg rack and a 130 Kg bike..itdoesnt take a genius to wrok out it's TOO HEAVY...but only in the UK !

I got a motorbike rack in the UK recently, see here: www.showmesome.info/hilux/workshop/rack.htm
Only suitable for permanent tow bars which have a plate that the tow ball normally bolts to. No where near as good as the racks I have seen available in the US, where there is plenty of choice and lots with ramps etc. This one you just have to get someone to help you lug the bike on and off. This was the only rack I have found available in the UK, I would be interested to know if anyone knows any others.
US towing hitches use a different system to ours, so not easy to just import a rack and use it, you would have to import a US tow bar too or do some modifications - and what with import duty and taxes it was something I decided against.
