This weekend at Chuckwalla I saw three vehicles I thought that would never tow a bike:

Honda Fit
Mini Cooper S
Toyota Prius

When there's a will, there's a way

Ride and get shacked in the Tube....Kain the Throttle

Almost anything can tow a motorcycle. Think of it this way. A motorcycle weighs less then the cargo capacity on even a small compact car. The towing capacity is alway more then the cargo capacity.

Homo, yes, but if it means more money in his pocket because of less money spent on gas, I'm all for it. That money could be used for....you guessed it...more trackdays

Yeah but it's less money to start out with because he blew a bunch of money to get the Prius in the first place. Gas savings are imaginary.

Not really. You can get a Prius C for like $17k new. Used Priuses are $10k all day now.

And I got bit by a horse once.

your still paying 40k+ for the car. That's not really a savings when a civic is half the price and still gets 35mpg. Food for thought.
