Looks like the "outrigger" dug into the asphalt. Ouch!  But that should buff out.   Smile

My tailgate is pretty high, and have a very short bed where the back tire sets close to the end. Makes my ramp pretty steep and a big step up. I actually have two 18" wide folding 8' ramps I hook together side by side. That way I can walk up one with the bike on the other, or just ride it up the ramps (which I've been warned not to do but is a lot faster   Wink ).  

I'll make sure I am careful on unlevel terrain with the carrier.  Thumbsup

Mine was on a 4x4 Ford with my DR 650 on it and wife's CRF230 in the bed of the truck.




At least the Bike was ok

Oh man that sucks, was the bike ok? What was the weight capacity of the hauler?


Bike was okay. It snagged on the concrete when I was backing into the driveway. In the pic, I had turned the truck around to make it easier to get it off. It was a fairly heavy duty one, 500 pounds, if I remember correctly. I was bummed. I only had it a couple months and just used it a few times.

It was that stock exhaust that did it!
Get rid of that thing!
I've had very good service from my FMF pipe on my DR.

Bike is long gone. I'm riding a 450L now. It's about 90 pounds lighter.
