If I were stopped for obscured plate I would simply zip tie my plate to the bike or carrier.

One thing not yet mentioned, if you wreck your bike well enough no matter how hard you try it will not fit in the carrier.
Holy crap!

Then again at that point, you might remove a couple bolts and you can probably fit the whole thing in the back of the SUV lol

As a side note, if you and your boyfriend ever split, let me know. Any woman that keeps spare parts and tools in her kitchen cabinets is a keeper in my book :-p
Lmao!

Yeah the first few times he stayed over were a bit of an enlightening time for him. At one point he opened the pantry and said, "So I can't find the pasta, but I did find the forks... the Sub Frame, and a pretty nice lookin' Arata Full System."

Then he was vacuuming and found my spare wheels behind the couch. Just the other day I had to squeeze my spare motor into my laundry cabinet next to my vacuum and cat food. So yeah, it's cozy. Lol!

Eventually I will get it all pieced into a 3rd bike but I'm a frame short. I digress though.

As for crashing the bike. That's actually a really good point. If I were to wad it up bad enough I'd probably just have to spend some time tearing it down and throwing it IN the XTERRA. Much easier if it's the XT vs the 6R. Lol

As much as the hitch carriers scare me, I've never actually heard of one failing. Sounds like a good option for those with very limited space and bikes that need haulin'

That sounds sexy right there! ....not something you hear or see every day that's for sure! lol

And were you playing a "find my bike parts" game with your boyfriend or what?

No but maybe that's something we can turn into a sexy scavenger hunt when it comes time to start building.
