I have seen that before, it is a way cool concept!!! And I think they have like 5 of them in work right now over in Europe!!! I don't think it would work well here though, with the US having some of the largest vehicles on the planet!!!

wow, crazy idea. Why would someone think of using a motorcycle to tow a small car as being a practical invention?? Why not rig up a small car with a tow rig instead?... perhaps something actually useful like a tow rig that is MADE to haul ONLY motorcycles. How many stories have we all heard of how tow truck drivers thrashed on someones nice motorcycle by hauling it wrong or loading it wrong?

How about a tow company that has dedicated bike haulers.. specifically for hauling mc's. Why do they gotta bring a huge 25ft long 4ft high flat bed truck to haul one small motorcycle?

I always knew that the Goldwings were the trucks (or SUVs) of the motorcycle world. I don't think that I would try to tow a car with one, though. It looks like a death trap.

I remember seeing something like this a few years ago and they had a red goldwing. Dunno what show it was but damn cool idea

Well they must have brakes on the skid portion - and if setup right I would think it would actually work very well...
