Bike Bike Rack (bicycle rack)

Just wanted to share my latest "accessory." Yes, that is a mountain bike mounted to the back of a motorcycle. Anyone else have a set-up like this?

That's a cool looking set up. Nice job. I saw a post once where a surfer mounted his board off the side of his 50cc Honda Ruckus. With a little imagination and work, its amazing what problems can be solved.

Always trust your cape.

Good job. I have a set up with the bike mounted sidways acrosss the back. CG is alot lower and the mtb overhangs past the rear axle less. Down side is, if I tip the V over I'll likely destroy my mtb. I'd prefer the inline system you did but I have a lefty fork so not fork clamps for me.

i had a mount on my old Honda 919 and used it constantly. Not having to drive to trails on beutiful days increased the amount that I rode mtb substantially.

Really cool. I've seen bike racks on BMW bikes, but never on a Versys.
