Things to Consider
‘Deciding what kind of bike carrier to purchase is determined by the number of bikes you wish to carry, whatever they weigh, just how tall they are, and what car type you drive.
‘Lifting some mass of motorcycle upon an automobile roof may be out of the question in case you are of average height and operating a huge SUV or perhaps 4×4.
‘There are actually 2 locations to carry bikes: (one) on the automobile roof, (two) behind the automobile, both on a tow ball, or perhaps strapped to the tailgate.
