Motorcycle carrier

  1. Apr 23, 2007 #1
    Thanks for all the help with the information you all gave me on making an motorcycle carrier on the back of my Motor-home, I downsized from wanting to carry my Goldwing (800#) to carrying my Suzuki 400 DRZ 400 lbs with carrier. The added load to the rear axle and the load off the front axle was noticeable when driving. Here's my question, with the total weight of 400# and a wheel base of 144" and 192" from center of rear axle to center of carrier what would my added load to the rear axle and how much off the front? Thanks Bill ( PS some of you asked why not just trailer the motor cycles, the reason is some rv spots are not big enough for the rv and trailer plus with just one bike on the back its easier to maneuver.
