    just having bought a moto trail bike that is street legal, I have been toying with the question of how to carry my bicycle ...and now I know, or at least know that it can be done pretty neatly. luckily the moto I bought already has a rear freight rack.
    now, why I would ever want to carry my mtn. bike back there...?
    I dig, chop, strangle, yank, stomp, annihilate, mutilate, eradicate, and FU goatheads

    Now, I am considering selling this retro bike and buying a Honda Silverwing, a big freeway scooter that can do 100 mph and I think I can strap a mountain bike or a surfboard to the side. You would take the front wheel off, place the bike with rear wheel facing toward the front of the bike, and put the handlebars facing to the back (high up out of the way of the turn signals). Front wheel goes on the other side. The bike may well rest on the passenger foot peg or something that I build that would come off the passenger or perhaps the exhaust hanger.

    I tested the mountain bike on the retro scooter in the pictures today. If I rest the crank where it meets the bottom bracket on the chrome "sissy bars" that wrap around the whole rear of the bike its pretty easy to strap it on securely. The front wheel goes on the other side.

    Questions:


    Is it bad to rest the bike on the crank here where it might be hitting bumps on the road? I put pipe insulation to cushion it here against the steel sissy bar.

    Has anyone ever seen anyone else with a mountain bike on a motorcycle?

    Am I totally crazy?
