Maybe a silly question but what is the best way to transport a Grom using a small coupe. I wouldn't consider moving a full size motorcycle but I think my Civic should be able to handle the weight of the Grom. Suggestions?

Something I'm considering if I ever want to travel long distance and bring the Grom along.

Trailer in a Bag

But not at that price.

Other options?

Not sure about this, practical though.

The design is extremely simple, if you are practical, then all the parts to make it are available, or if you know someone with a workshop, it would not be difficult to knock one up. Maybe a cheap option if only used occasionally.

Here is a U.K. site, but there must be something similar in the U.S.

I have a truck and a trailer. Here is how I pulled a bike with my Miata.

that is epic.

How much weight would you say that trailer and bike are?

I'd imagine if too much you would worry a bit about your gears. Miatas aren't exactly meant for towing :D


But +1 for being crazy enough for doing so. Plus it looks badass.

That was my track day trailer modified for the bike. The trailer is like 100/150 and the bike is supposed to be about 120. Thought it was cool for a Mardi Gras parade I was riding in.

I have a lowered S10 pickup which I usually load my bikes in.

as much as i wish i could do this all the time, my cottage (cabin) is in an area where it would be hard to ride it safely. roads are pure dirt, i'd probably end up slipping out somewhere. so i tend to rent a truck and tow it up, or borrow a friend's truck, and then toss it into a trailer.

interesting other ideas though guys.. ironically i'm up at the cottage this weekend too. slow internet, so might be less "on' than usual, and yes, i used a trailer this time :)

Whe do you live that you have cottage country? Canada?

i'm near nyc (white plains).. but my extended family (sister's husband's family) has a cottage up in canada near a town called kingston, ontario, which i go to often (where i am now). for those that don't know where that is, it's just north of rochester/syracuse, so easy to get across the border, and in the words of my wife "very very pretty" near the 1000 island lakes. cottage is near this resort:

wife has a summer home in ny, near lake placid. i get the fun of being able to go to both.. i prefer the canada side to be honest, its' faster to drive on, and for our canadian friends on the forum, you guys are really super nice.. almost too much so lol that and i prefer the beer, and the roads are better paved. and i can ride a bit faster. both a bit of a haul to get to, but that's the fun of summer, and it's nice seeing my sis often.

signal's a bit spotty up here though, and eats my cell data and it's really damn expensive. sister has a sim card so i use her data when up here tethered but it's pretty slow.

I think if you are just moving it from time to time with a trailer just rent a pickup truck for a day (cheap) and strap it down to the back.

can you ride it from the dealer to your turn off point then walk it up to the cottage? or is the dirt road pretty lengthy?

Just get one of these single trailer if you plan on moving it often. If not just call one of those motorcycle towing companies I think they usually charge around $80-90USD but depends on location as well.

Harbor freight trailers are junk.
I would suggest a hitch, and a hitch rack.
Or buy an SUV, most likely would fit in the back with no problems. :)
