Re: Motorcycle Carrier

Why not just front wheel suspended in a rack with rear on road Not legal on UK roads except for recovery purposes as Hounddog says. I looked into the idea myself but the law states that if any towed vehicle has brakes fitted they must be linked to work when those on the towing vehicle are engaged. ...
