How much does that weigh? 
846 pounds
Planning to weigh it tomorrow once I get the wheel chock done. If I'm having to guess I probably came real close to the hundred pound weight limit. Actually if we're being honest I'm pretty scared I went over it LOL

I was kidding,
Mine weighs about that much. It doesn't really matter as long as it will hold the bike.

Well I built it and loaded it. Carrier worked fine and I didn't have much issue with the piece itself, but upon the test drive the front end just felt a little to squirrelly. To much so for 9 hrs of interstate driving. If I were to put it on a truck it may be ok, but on the wife's car, I feel I would be putting us both at unnecessary risk. A short trip of an hour or so maybe, but not in this situation. For you guys that had concern about the car, you were right, and I'm choking down my own words. Thanks for the advice..

Anyone need a 111 lb boat anchor? Lol

I don't spoze a pair of air shocks would help out?

If you were trailering a weight distributing hitch would probably be enough to level things out for you.  Too bad there isn't some way to distribute that weight over the length of the thing the same way a hitch could.
