My cabin is just outside Wardensville, near the junction of 55 & 259.
Come out 50, go south on 259 and pick up 55. And then just ride. Nothing but twisties.

That was a pretty ride, and 55 was nice and flowing and could be fast. Last weekend I rode on what I THINK was 608/Wardensville Grade off of 50 closer to Winchester. That was a DAMN good road, albeit run at a much slower pace than 55.

I did not care of the anti-wobble set up that came with the Moto-Tote. The ultimate solution is: http://www.etrailer.com/Hitch-Access...er/RM-061.html



This takes all play out of the equation on my Land Cruiser w/ a 350lb bike.

Also -- heres a 10% coupon (MTX87234) that got me the MX3 for about $319

That's a nice looking solution. Better than the dealie that came with my El Cheepo hitch hauler.

Kinda pricey though...

looks like it would be more effective if you flipped it over, but its a good idea

Yeah Mototote anti rattle is just a recessed hex head bolt that cinches the inner tube tight against the hitch. I have not noticed any problematic play with a 400lbs sport bike on i81 going 80 with the music turned up. With a dirtbike even less of a problem but the etrailer clamp does not seem like a bad idea especially if you do take some extended bumpy roads. Get the pro taper tie downs with closed carabiners on the end + they have great built in soft ties.http://motorcycle-superstore.com/Ite...mStyleId=27040
I had a slight incident with a tie down hook jumping out on me luckily I was going slow, I've learned now to use the pro taper ones now where this can't happen because of bumps and suspension movement. Overall very happy with Mototote setup, no more trailers! Can take bike along anytime! I got some magnetic trailer lights to put on and off as the bike hides my tail lights. I bought my mototote on eBay for significant discount but that seller currently does not have anymore. You don't need the heavy duty one for lighter streetbike dirtbikes. The 2 dirtbike one would be fun also for 2 playbikes.
