Very sturdy and attractive carrier. Easily loaded and unloaded. I am able to load my 450 lb KLR 650 without assistance, and it rides stable and with a minimum of wobble. Some recommendations, though: To remove any play or wobble from the carrier, the through-bolts and flange nuts which join the platform assembly to the square tube must be tightened thoroughly, so that the metal wings of the platform assembly flex inward and "clamp" the square tube. This required significant force on mine, and I initially was wary of stripping the nuts or bending the metal wings. The resulting wobble, while not dangerous, was disconcerting. Once the metal wings of the carrier were compressed against the square tube, though, all play vanished. The large flange nuts are used in this joint to withstand the necessary torque. So tightened, even with my tall, heavy bike, the carrier exhibits only a slight and acceptable flex, with no free play at all. The zero-wobble bolt at the hitch receiver works perfectly and is a simple, clever solution. Don't lose the hex wrench and crescent wrench needed for the zero-wobble bolt. I keep them in my motorcycle's toolkit. With Ancra tie-downs, during one test drive, I found one of the straps to have loosened. Something caused the ratchet to release for a moment. Since then, I have taken to the following: After tightening the strap at the ratchet to the desired point, run the tag end of the strap through the eye of the hook, and secure it there with half hitches. This makes inadvertent loosening of the strap impossible, even if the ratchet gets bumped.
