I was very skeptical about putting a $13K ZX6R on this carrier but let me tell you, it works. I went from San Antonio TX to Raleigh, NC and then another trip from NC to NY and back. Both trips I took this and had my bike on it, it never budged, all the straps stayed tight, and the bike never bumped the truck, never came close to falling off, and I did it by myself most of the time. I am a 6' guy and I had no problems pushing my bike up the ramp and on to the carrier. Only con, the lights you can buy separately should be included with the purchase, it is pretty unsafe without them.
