I had a system like this several years ago. I thought it put to much leverage on the rear of of my BMW's luggage rack, so I bungie corded the handle bar to forward point, effectively taking weight off the rear wheel.Rufudufus said:I believe you're right. Flipping the bike around would be counterproductive, as it would have to move further back so that the tire didn't crowd the motorcyclist. Notice how it extends a few inches beyond the end of the rack rail in the photo. Good call.
My fork mount was bolted to a stripped down passenger seat.
