It is his car and I am sure he shared his idea with the rest of our members who might find this useful!

Would you rather him ratchet strap the bike to the roof? I have a Silverado to haul the toys but if I didn't have the truck I wouldn't think twice about putting a hitch on my Camaro. I wouldn't pull anything heavier than a jet ski though. Our rear diff only hold a quart of oil.

I took mine camping with a trunkload of firewood - if you can do something with the car other than wax it, do it! I'd put a ski rack on it (a la Better off Dead ) in a heartbeat, and a hitch makes sense to haul your bicycles around.

HA! I love it! That is a lifestyle thing fellas, nothing wrong with it. People riding those bikes are in much better shape than some of us are.

I say do it!

apparently some of these guys have never been to a track before. It's not uncommon to see even corvettes with hitches on them, pulling a trailer with their tools and spare tires/drag slicks on it.

Matter of fact saw a Viper towing his stuff the other week. If it's good enough for an 80k+ car it's damn sure good enough for ours.

Some of us can't afford multiple vehicles and do the best with what we got. I like enjoying different outdoor recreation and getting maximum value from my car.

It's yer car, do what you want. Glad you found a way to combine your interests.

Be careful if you ride your bike on the street.

Can you show a pic of the reciever hitch from the back. I have seen a few guys tow a small trailer with four racing wheels and tires to the track which looked very practical to me.

Which Thule hitch mounted bike rack do you recommend? (for my suburban)

Not something I would ever consider doing, but if it works for you then go with it.
