Is it recommended to just leave bike in neutral? Any hard bumps might kick the bike in gear. Pulling chain or belt would be excessive/labor intensive. So what is your recommendation. Is it required in the state of California to have any additional lights, since this would be over the 6 length from the hitch?

I have spoken with one of my contacts at Oldenkamp, the manufacturer of the Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier. He tells me that the motorcycle should be left in neutral while it is being towed. With a chain drive bike, he recommends either removing the chain or making sure the chain is as tight as possible if you are going to tow for distances over a hundred miles or so.
I would recommend checking with your State Highway Patrol or Department of Transportation about regulations pertaining to lighting your motorcycle while its being towed.
