I have a tilting rack. Unlock a pin, the thing tilts. A ramp slides out as well. Ride it up standing next to it. It has a front wheel holder. When the bike reaches the front wheel holder, it tilts to normal and you push the lever and lock in. Then tie down as normal and off you go.

Any possibility of nighttime travel, possibly unplanned? After installing a front receiver and bike rack, it only took a half mile test to realize the headlight glare off the bike rims was dangerously affecting my night time vision. Went with a small trailer instead.

All good info thanks.
I have a good ALUMA trailer. If I do the motorcycle thing I'll use that.

Similar to loading a bike into a toyhauler you can just walk beside it slipping the clutch. Electric bikes are sweet but not the best for boondocking type situations. You really start to appreciate the potential energy in a gallon of gasoline.

Curious why you ask a forum of people ,who are not likely to have a motorcycle and rack, and not go to youtube and watch a video of "how to"

Because he has a TC and there are a lot of creative people on this TC forum. Some YouTube people aren’t always the sharpest.
