Trailering V-Strom

I have read many of the post' regarding this issue but nothing I have tried seems to be working . I have a 5' X 8' utility trailer with 5/8" marine plywood on the deck. I do have 3/8" eye bolts at the four corners but tying to the bars rubs the fairing, tying to the lower triple tree rubs/bends the plastic, tying to the grips?, canyon dancer sucked ruining grips and almost switchs. Do not have crash guards, so maybe to engine mounts (kind of low) on bike/ Help :roll:

Why not go from the handlebars, down through the fairing and tie it down that way?

I use this method when strapping my Strom down on my motorcycle lift and it works quite well. No bending of anything and the bike does not move.

Just a thought. Just like this:

See now thats a new idea, but my rings are about 5' apart. I will see if I can add more rings.

I tie mine down with the crash bars in front and Touratech mounts in rear, very solid and no way to scratch paint.

Bondage, NOW your talking... oops wrong forum...

Anyway, I have been wondering about the wheel chocks. I would rather do that than put eye bolts in my truck bed... wife would KILL me for drill her new truck...

Anyone else use chocks?

Don't make them wear helmets, thin out the gene pool.
