Good question... looks more like a way to teach someone how to wheelie.
I'd be worried about making turns and hitting large bumps aka Vancouver streets. The headtube isn't locked so that gives the bike an option to swing around and if I wonder... if you hit a large enough bump wouldn't that cause it to tilt over?
Certainly aint gonna help with those chicken strips.
They were actually selling them at the bike show last year (Seattle or Abby)
The version I saw last year had a crank so you could raise and lower the wheel chock for easy loading.
The bike must be insured to be legal.

I noticed they didn't want to use an expensive bike in there photo...that puts a lot of faith in there product

I saw the same type of set-up about 15years ago. Guy had a KLR on the back of an early 80's RX-7 with Alaska plates, so had survived a reasonable distance.

i know someone from a car forum who has been using that for a long time towing his bike
he said it does scare his friends who drive behind him, but he said he never has an accidnet
Only thing I would hang of that hauler is a garbage bag if I went camping
Most manuals also state not to tow a bike with the engine off, as the transmission is not lubricated then.
