Hey guys, I searched a lot and haven't come up with any really good info, so thought I would ask... I have a DRZ400SM motorcycle with a wet weight of 300 pounds. I just ordered a class 3 hitch rated at 500 pounds at the tongue. I was hoping to buy a motorcycle hitch carrier and put the bike directly on the back of the explorer, but not sure if it's too much and if I should just bite the bullet and go with a trailer instead (which means more expensive, and needs registration, tags, title, etc). I have a 2005 explorer, V6, 4X4. I have towed a rather large trailer, that I borrowed to get the bike, on the stock class 2 and it did awesome. I look forward to your input!
