Dirt bike carrier
The MX dirt bike held onto the back of your SUV?
Any type of dirt bike carrier is important, as most bikes are not street legal. If you have a panterra dirt bike, or even an old honda MX bike, a good device like this - will never let you down. Of course you can get expensive aluminium or cheap steel carriers, which can carry 2 dirt bikes, or even more! Which is ideal if you’re in a club.
A number of dirtbike carriers are available from the online stores. When taking your ride to a dirtbike trail you can use a dirtbike trailer but dirtbike carriers attached to the back of a pickup truck are far more convenient.
Some dirtbike trails can be very bumpy and dirtbike trailers can make your ride bounce around in the back if not properly strapped down.
So if your hitting the minnesota dirtbike trails or ottawa dirtbike tracks take a look at these dirtbike racing carriers we checked out.

Motocross / dirt bike Carrier
Some trailers or carriers can be improved with a few dirt bike graphic images & stickers, (but remember it can be an offence to have an offensive decal on the back of your carrier).
Always have an excellent lock too, so your moto is safe and secure on the roads. Also be aware of the law and carriers in your country, some may require you to have another licence plate (on the carrier) – as the MX bike may obscure your original vehicles back plate.
Check out these websites above and find your perfect carrier.
