    bike rack for motorcycle

    I have researched this and have the following idea, just wanted to see what people think. maybe someone already tried it and has some input.

    Moto is a Honda XR650L
    I need to buy a little platform rack for the back. Then just bolt a 1upUSA rack that I have to it. I would slide the rack as far forward as I could until it bothers me. I know the mounting bolts are supposed to be some minimum distance apart, and this will not satisfy that. I only plan on short rides, max 50 mph. Just more fun than driving a car.

    I might take some Thule bars I have and mount those to the moto rack and have them sticking out either left or right just a bit. That way I think I could slide the bike rack on over the side of the bars for easier mounting/removal and I could also slide it all further forward.

    Does this sound just stupid?????

    Itís possible. My son used to mount his mountain bike to his KLR when he was in college. It worked for him. Good luck.
