Anyone ever hear of these towing cradles for motorcycles, check out the videos here:

I would always rather ride than trailer, but it does look like an inexpensive option.

What does everyone else think???

Never used one, but I've seen them before. Especially for dirt bikes.
Seems like a really good price.

The only problem is...

the only time I have trailered my bike is when it had a flat.
The rear tire was flat and this would not work.

If you towed your c50 with that thing it would eat up the transmission unless you disconected the drive shaft or had the engine running the owners manual warns you not to tow our bikes with the rear tire on the ground or bye bye tranny.

i wouldnt ever use one of these for anything... for just a little more money you could get a cheap HF trailer and have it up off the ground.

I think it has its limited uses but I think if you had a flat while pulling your bike it might get crazy :? In a 5 year run I have had two flats on back and one on front.Once on front tire I made it home 35miles on fix a flat,one rear flat i got home on fix aflat and one blow out on rear < no quick fix had to call a truck. 8)

That's what I was thinking. Whether or not the bike is in neutral or not, the driveshaft would still be turning. I wouldn't think it would be good for the bike.

My thoughts too.
Why not just spend a few more bucks and let it sleep the trip away - all cozy like! :lol:
