Not to hyjack thread but..Several people here have mentioned mounting motorcycle on front bumper, I know you could never Drive through East Africa with something mounted on the front that big without being stopped by every cop on the road, Anyone aware of how USA states in general and Central/ southern American countries feel about a front mounted motorcycle?
I haven't revisited this thread for a good while. Since I first started this discussion I have upgraded to a Ram 3500 dually for hauling my camper. When carrying the KLR I have always used a small trailer. However, now that weight is a little less an issue, I am tempted to try a hitch rack.
