Bike Carrier

Has anyone found a rear mounted bike carrier that works on the 5GT? I'm trying to avoid the roof bars option for obvious reasons.

Saw that, but the UK site says 'price on request' - any idea of the pricing?

In fact i've tried to request the price from my UK dealer - looks like this carrier (universal one) is not available to buy (the same as iphone4 media cradle) yet

In fact - all of them are requires towbar, and in case you've got one - Thule is the best option (Euroclassic, Euroway, etc)

Unfortunately, I know what you mean...I picked up one thing I wanted while in Germany...the US arm said no when asked about it.

Just like the trailer hitch is a factory option...if you live in Germany.
