Maximum speed if bike is on hitch-carrier?

Hi all,

I'm looking to purchase my first west-coast dirt bike this weekend up near Sacramento. Thus, I'll have to drive to Sacramento and back.

I'm planning on transporting it using a hitch-mounted carrier, and was wondering if the 55 mph max speed limit applies to me when I'm towing with a hitch mounted carrier, even though I don't have a third axle touching the ground (although I'm afraid they'll try to classify it as "vehicle towing other vehicle").

Just trying to avoid any potential tickets from the good 'ol CHP
