    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. LOL

    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!

    I would never use a hitch that didn't attach to the frame rails. The thought of trying to pull 2000 lbs with that hitch scares me.

    LOL We do ALOT of things with these cars that they weren't made to do. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't or that it's a bad idea.

    And not everybody is concerned with adding 40 lbs. or weight to their DSM. They're not all race cars...


    And an FYI: The 2GB rear bumper cover hides almost all of the DrawTite hitch from view. Only the lowest point (receiver portion) is visible. The other bumper covers will expose more of the hitch overall.
