Trailering a Wee
Another riding buddy and I enjoy exploring new twisties in the Catskills, but don't like riding 3 hrs to get there on the slab, each way in 1 day. So, (call me a wuss but) we're renting an open utility trailer from U-Haul - either a 5'x9', or a 6'x12', depending on the tow vehicle and how well the bikes fit on it. (Other bike is a BMW R1200rt or F650)
I'm planning to use 4 ratchet straps on the Wee - 2 on the rear attached to the seat side bars, and 2 on the handle bars.
BTW, I have 1"up & 1" back risers.
I'm also planning to build simple 2"x4" wheel chocks to help stabilize.
I'm open to thoughts re my strap attachment points on the bike, how much pressure I can put on them, and trailer suggestions in general.
