    Those things are a poor choice for regular bikes and wont work for a spyder. Rear tire is much wider and you are picking up the heavy end of the bike. Take a good look at the holder for the tire. Its designed for a motorcycle tire with a round profile, not the square rear tire of a spyder. Also look at how far back the tire is from the end of the cars hitch, probably over a foot. And they list the max weight as 500 lbs and not recommended for towing behind motor homes.

    One other thing to think about is how low the front lip of the spyder already is to the ground. Pick up the rear wheel and you will probably grind off the front on the pavement.

    Towed mine home 135 miles on flatbed.
    No problems.
    Flatbeds may even be more abundant then other configurations.
