So I am in the market for a cheap new cage. My 91 corolla probably won't last me the winter. I am looking for the best option for transport my bike. NYST is opening near me and I'm going back and forth to college so I was thinking about getting a pickup. I realized that I don't really need that much towing capacity to pull my rr so maybe I could just get a compact with a hitch. For 5 grand do you think I would be better off getting a small VW or something with a hitch or a pickup.

Well for the money I would assume you could get a car tha is in better shape than a truck for the same amount if money... If you can find a real small trailer for your bike I would think the car would work just fine

Pickup truck all day err day!!!

Let me paint you a typical errday scenario!

Your driving home one day in your pickup after a long day of work. You look ahead and notice a huge gravel pile on the side of the road. You think to yourself.....damn that gravel would look nice in my driveway. As you keep looking you see a butt f***ing huge buck walk put of the gravel pile. It's not buck season but I'm talking trophy mother f***ing big!!! You realize you have your desert eagle in yo truck and its loaded :D because your in TEXAS and in TEXAS we still do things the cowboy way!!!

So what do you do???

You quickly pull over, shoot the buck ftw for the motha f***ing win!!! You load him up in the back then drive to the gravel pile and shovel gravel until the buck is well hidden. You close the tonneau cover and no ones the wiser. Later back home you have a nice gravel driveway and a buck head hanging off of your fireplace

Fin!!!!

Not sure if there is a different speed limit when towing a trailer in NY?

How long is your commute? With uncertain gas prices, and snow, since its doubtful you'll get much 4X4 for 5000K, I would be thinking getting an economical front wheel drive hatch and a harbor freight trailer.

Trust me when I say you'll need everything you save on fuel for your new addiction!

I've owned a 94 Nissan pickup for a couple of years now. It's perfect for hauling tile or moving a couch. I can tow the RR and get to work if its bad weather. I picked it up, perfect working order 90k for only $2,000.

the commute the the track is supposed to be like 2.45 hours and the commute to school is two hours.

in response to everbody else. I would rather get a pick up especially because i could use it to make some extra cash. But i am looking at trucks in the lehigh valley area aswell as NY and most of the are beat. I just want to know if it would be better to get a truck with 100k + or a car with 70K for the same price
