So I'm gettin ready to move away from Vegas. I'm borrowing a trailer that doesn't have a wheel chock on it and I'm wondering if anyone here has done that or can shoot me some tips. I've hauled bikes in the bed of a truck a few times, but never on a trailer. I was thinking of nailing two pieces of 2x4 on either side of the wheel to keep it from slipping; will this work well enough?
Just tie it down hard. Have someone sit on the bike to compress the suspension when you tighten the ratchets. Or is your trailer bed really slippery?
Don't do this. If you compress the suspension too much your going to bust a fork seal. I tow all the time with my truck or trailer and I've never used a wheel chock. If your hauling a sportbike I would highly purchase a Canyon Dancer before towing.
