I live in a rural area where there is no garbage collection. Hauling garbage inside an SUV on a warm day is not the most fun thing, so I wanted something to allow carrying the cans outside of the vehicle without having to haul a trailer around. Although this product is made for hauling ATVs, it works perfect for my purpose. It is easy to attach and remove and is very sturdy. The rails on 3 of the sides allow attaching tie down cords to secure the load. Assembly was easy and the unit is essentially flat allowing for convenient storage. To test the useability of the unit when attached to the SUV, I (200 lbs) stood on one end of the platform to see if it would torque with a heavier load on on side than the other. It was rock solid. The unit comes complete, but does not include a hitch pin.
I really like this Bicycle/Motorcycle lock because it is longer and wider than standard locks for the purpose, which allows me plenty of room to secure my frame and wheel at the same time. Also, I like the 4 keys that come with it so I don't have to fuss with finding one. Another nice feature is that you don't need the key to lock it in place, which I much prefer as the last lock I had needed a key to lock it and when a friend of mine borrowed my bike, he didn't know that just closing it would not lock it. As a result, the shank portion fell off while he was riding it back and he never noticed. This will fix that problem.
With no explicit instructions I'm going to have to play around to see if these will actually work on a motorcycle; I may need to alter them to accomodate the mirrors. Some instructions would have certainly helped! Before I know for sure I can make these work I can't recommend them to a friend.
