To my fellow ...BMW 750 drivers who cycle:
This towbar is a work of art/science. Literally invisible when not in use. Purchased a European towbar mounted bike rack from Thule to go with this towbar/hitch and it is simply the easiest system to install/remove that I have ever used for carrying bikes (and I’ve been carrying bikes on 7 series BMWs since 2003). Just insert the towbar into it’s receiver. Click. The drop the bike rack on to the ball mount and press down the lever lock. Boom, your done. No struggling to insert/slide an awkward bike rack into a rusty, dirty receiver and ratchet tight an anti-sway bolt. The towbar mount allows you to immediately drop the weight onto the ball mount. No bending over trying to guide the bike rack into the receiver. Check out the Thule towbar mounted bike racks. .....
Have your BMW dealer’s body shop install it for warranty peace of mind.
Superior design, engineering, functionality/ease of use. Not cheap, but neither was your BMW! Well worth it to an avid biker who doesn’t want to drive around in an SUV all the time. „
