    Anyone use a Moto hitch rack?

    Just got rid of my Tacoma and gonna need to get a hitch rack. I also ride Moto and need a rack for that too. I figure I could just use the moto
    rack for the MTB and use tie downs versus buying two different racks.

    Figure it shouldn't be a problem but curious if anyone does this and has experience? Any disadvantages other than it taking a little longer?

    Guy at the local trails does this. Takes an extra minute to strap it all down but it seems to work well for him.
    In serving the wicked, expect no reward, and be thankful if you escape injury for your pains.

    I don't see why it wouldn't work, just gotta get the straps out. Mine has some pretty large gaps between members that the tires would sit on. As long as the tires are pumped up adequately and you don't ratchet the crap outta it, it's probably fine for your tires / wheels.

    It works fine. You can strap the tire to either side to take up the space at the wheels. I put a rigid foam block between the front tire and the fork crown so I can pull tight down on the straps and not compress the fork so much. Very secure set-up.
