OK OK, I guess I should have posted earlier. I have one.

I opted for the all steel (HEAVY) MOTO SLED brand. It came with a ramp and worked great for me. I purchased some of the cheap ratcheting tie down put one on each side of the handle bars and one under the channel connected to the pegs then used the excess strap to tie the rear tire down. The thing swayed quite a bit but I never had any real problem. I now have a truck but keep it around just in case I need to haul an extra bike or something. IF I were to buy another one it would be aluminum!!! The Sarge Carriers look good!!

I never even considered that. Good thought Randy!

Yes its an easy work around with the addition of a set of trailer lights you could hang on the bike or mount on the carrier somewhere. But then you adding to the cost again and a small trailer could be used for more than just your bike, i.e. hauling a load of cement, mulch, building materials ect... Honey Do's!!!!
Plus some of the small trailers Ive seen can stand on their tale and be rolled away taking not much more space than storing that rack system.

I use one all the time. I trust it as much or more than my trailer, and you can haul *** down the freeway and dont have to worry about the 55 mph trailer limit. (I know I dont drive 55 with my trailer either) The best one in your search is the versa-hauler, they are very nice and built good. These hitch haulers are the way to go if you only have to haul 1 bike.

I'll second the versa haul.My buddy has one and i borrowed it once when my wife wanted to take her jeep.It was well built and the bike did't sway to much.It had a bolt to tighten it up in the hitch.

If you do get a versa haul get the single and not the double.The double puts the weight out to far and your vehicle will really sag in the rear.:
