Will this fit on a rear rack?

Has anyone transported their X300 on a rear bumper carrier such as VersaHaul?
In theory I guess one would work because the bike is less than 400lbs.
But the bike seems like it would be too long and just generally awkward to load.

If you visit their website and look under the F.A.Q's there are links to various calculators to check what will fit.

I had a similar one made up for me at a trailer-hitch shop in Calgary, MANY years ago, to carry my KLR650, but I had them add TWO additional 2" square receivers to my motorhome, as well as to the "carrier", as I did NOT trust that much weight to JUST one 2" receiver.

(I will look for pics of the set-up, but can't remember WHERE they are, at this time.)
