How do you secure a motorcycle on a trailer?
If you’re loading two motorcycles and their handlebars or fairings interfere, try reversing one of the bike’s positions in the trailer. It’s usually best to load the biggest bike in the forward position to properly distribute the load. After you’ve locked down the front, it’s time to strap the rear for extra stability.
How do you tie down a motorcycle on a trailer without chock?
Tying Down A Motorcycle Safely
- Apply soft straps to your motorcycle, securing the ends to the sides of your trailer or the fixtures on your truck bed.
- Loop each soft strap to a ratchet strap.
- Then, compress your shocks a bit — this will prevent the straps from disengaging if you drive on a bumpy road.
Is a motorcycle wheel chock necessary?
The answer is… well, yes and now. Wheel chock use is mandatory in certain circumstances. In others, you’re supposed to use common sense and adjudicate your situation. When the required size/type of chock isn’t available, you look for a different solution to securing the vehicle.
