Hidden Tow hitch in a 2g? show me yours please


I'm looking to install a tow hitch in my GSX, I need a way to carry two bikes without having to install a roofrack, altho I might end up getting a roofrack to carry other things.


I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with tow hitches

thanks

I hate to sound like jusmx141 but search button and google are your friend. A quick google will net you several threads on HERE that are nothing but trailer hitches.

I'll probably be getting a hitch later this summer so I can tow a 4'x6' trailer with my motorcycle on it if need be.

It's adding weight, but at least it's behind the rear wheels. Might actually help the autox times.

EVERY biker I know who is into cars owns a Jetta so it makes sense for them to have a bike rack. Most of them take long trips to go to different skate parks at least once a week.

But I'd have to agree most Civic owners are just wannabes.

I dont think anyone should put a tow hitch on a DSM. Just weighs it down more. But like I read, if it had a great purpose. Then go for it.

It's not hating per say...but sti's DSM's etc. are performance cars.

To quote it best, my dads NSX actually has a door jam sticker that says "do not tow with this vehicle"
Sure it would be capable, but it's not made for it!
