The winch you referenced is the Dutton-Lainson Winch, part # DL14730. It has a capacity of 2000 lbs, so it will certainly handle the 600 lbs you mentioned the motorcycle weighs. This winch features a reversible ratchet, and has a quick attach handle.

I would also recommend the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, part # DL24249. This strap is 2 inches wide and 25 feet long, and has the safety hook attached. The strap has a capacity of 2600 lbs.

If you would be interested in an electric winch, I would recommend the Master Lock Electric Trailer Winch, part # 2953AT. This winch comes with a 20 ft power cable, and has a 30 ft wire rope with a hook attached. It also features a 9 ft handheld remote. The line speed is approximately 6 ft per minute with the load.

We do offer a Worm Gear Hand Winch for 2 inch Winch Strap, part # DL11002. This has a 2000 lb capacity. You can change the shaft on this winch with an adapter, part # DL406102. It would require removing the dowel pin holding the shaft in place, removing the shaft and replacing it with the hex adapter. This would allow you to use a drill with the winch. The shaft diameter of the shaft is 5/8 inch.

You need to determine where you want to attach the winch to the trailer. If you have a straight line trailer and has a 2 inch tongue, then I would recommend the CE Smith Winch Stand, part # CE31013G. It is 30 inches tall and features 14 mounting holes, which allows you to adjust the height of the winch. I would recommend you use bolts that would go through the tongue, providing more stability for the stand and winch.

If you are going to be mounting the winch at an angle, you would possibly need to use a pulley block, like part # SW2227A. This would allow you to move an anchor point, which will keep the wire coming straight out of the winch.

I have linked you to a couple of FAQ help articles about winches.
