To the OP, another vote for you being OK w/hauling the bike on your fancy mount. :)

First off, I don't know how you ride a scooter at all, cuz your cahonies are so huge to even try that but, it reminded me of an old m*a*s*h episode where a chopper pilot carried a dummy on one side when he only had one passenger in the tube on the side of the chopper.(helicopter, not OCC) anyway, I like your side mount, just buy another bike and put it on the other side.

All kidding aside, it looks impressive and I wouldn't change a thing.

Second attempt to put bicycle on scooter, the Pelican case actually has enough room for change of cycling gear, healmet, shoes, etc. :

I like it!

How are you mounting the plywood to the scooter's rack? The VStrom's rack is not all that different so whatever you're doing, I may be able to do as well. I've been mountain biking alot lately and taking the MTB to work and the trail would be nicer (economicaly) if I could do it on the big V.

I have a couple of those fork mounts from the days when I'd stuff the MTB into the back of the Jeep. And I have heavy thick plywood. I'm already half way there...

By George, I think you've got it!

Nicely done. Keeping the weight as far forward as possible must be a big help. Have you tried it out yet?

I revised the carrier a little, move the mass of the bicycle further forward, reduced the size of the platform.. took the scooter up to speed of 50 mph, hitting bumps on the road make disconcerning noise..

Very very cool.

I like this design a lot. The only question I have is: Are the wheels used to keep the bike from moving left to right while mounted? They look pretty close to the frame so that makes sense. But I would like something underneath the frame that would handle this issue.

Really great design. I've seen many and this is probably buildable by many people.

You could carry all the bicycles and gear you wanted to if you fab up a little trailer like these single wheel bicycle trailers:


Or any kind of little lightweight trailer....

You would have to put lights on it to be legal, but they can carry a fairly good size load and still ride like nothings there.

Hint: You'll find these on craigslist which kids hate and people can't sell for much, and they're easy to modify as you can imagine. With a heavy bmx wheel it won't ever break, but even with a standard wheel it would last quite a while provided you don't drag it into too many potholes at 60mph with 200lbs on it.



It's as easy as towing the bike itself and you said you don't want to damage your good bike's rims or wear the good bike out dragging it, so this is an easy way around that.





Good for golf clubs too.

This hauls a mobility scooter etc, with one wheel...


Someone on here uses this:

Or just something like this:



I think a hand truck gave it's life for this:
