Fit motorbike to rear

I want to carry my 250cc off road motorbike at the back of my bus. Any ideas or photos of how to do that? I don't think the door hinges would take the weight. It's too heavy to lift, so need some pulley mechanism. On the other hand the easy option would be to row it on a trailer....

What about a hitch-mounted carrier, like below? If you can find something similar in the UK, or if Amazon would ship it internationally.
