    I have a 5'x8' trailer connected to my Tundra 4x4 that I laid 2"x4"s across and then mounted a PowerStands PowerChock at the front. I hook two regular ratcheting straps to PowerChock front hook points, go outside the trailer, up from under the front fairing, over the top triple then underhook the top triple. I use that to keep the bike at the front of the trailer. I then hook the arms of the passenger pegs go under the side of the trailer, crossover, the hook back again the arm of the passenger peg. Unlock the ratchets and pull the strap tight to remove all slack, then start ratcheting. Compress the rear shock and front forks as much as you can. This keeps the bike form bouncing out of position.

    I'm surprised it took so long, but I'm with you biker dude...getting the thing OUT of the truck is the only thing I worry about.

    I'm going to look at getting a very long ramp so that the angle isn't sharp. I'm guessing my bed is 6' so it would be two 6 footers that somehow bolt together in the middle. I'll have to custom build it of course...anyone have a welder I can borrow?

    But with a trailer, you're limited to 55mph. Without it, you can pretty much go with the flow of traffic.

    Hey Os ... some fella asked how to supersport his bike on another thread ... You should post him some some pics.

    That looks excellent !!! good job mate



    For you Neil.....

    If you go for the plank of wood option beware if you have the bike running. Once the front wheel is in the van too much throttle can spin the plank away and you're in a whole world of pain !! seen it done
