Exclamation Sportbike carrying a mountain bike

Okay,I've seen some interesting things on motorcycles,but,this was one of the more interesting items I have seen on the back of a bike. I was out riding today on a stretch of four lane highway and saw this headed the other way.
The bike in question looked like a yellow TL1000r.
The guy had his mountain bike with him mounted length-wise behind him. The front wheel was kinda over his head,but behind him. The bicycle was at an angle front wheel higher than the rear. All of this was done, like I said, length-wise,parallel to the motorcycles frame.
Has any one seen this also??
I guess if he gets a flat tire he's in fairly good shape!!

I have a friend who (About 3-4 years ago) used to pull his Jet Ski and trailer behind his CBRF2. Looked funny as hell.

That's the reason Honda made the Gold Wing. Haul the bicycles, kids, well you name it.

Yep.

I have a friend who carried his mtn bike to work on the back of his VFR on a daily basis, to ride on his lunch break. Looked pretty odd. The rack held the bicycle by it's front fork, with the front wheel removed, and the back of the bike sticking almost straight up. He stopped after the added stress caused his rear subframe to crack.
