  • Traveling Roadstar

    I am getting ready to take the R* on it's first long road trip and I am looking for suggestions on how to strap it down in the trailer. I was thinking about attaching the strap around the crash bar, at the top in the center where it attaches to the frame. There seems to be too many hoses and wires around the top of the tree, so I didn't want to strap it there. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

      I have an adjustable wheel chock that you strap your tire into, then 1 strap on each side pulling towards the front and 1 more through the back wheel to keep the ass end still.

        This allows me to let the bikes suspension move while trailering.

      Like Mort says. What is your trailer and tie down points? I have a buddy who stores an enclosed trailer at my place that I can use. He has a nice wheel chock in there that snugs the front wheel tightly. I simply put two straps from e-tracks on the side to the passenger floor board brackets pulling the bike forward. But that trailer is heavy enough that it doesn't bounce around. So that is what I use and it doesn't compress the suspension while in tow.

        Sorry for the delay, the trip has come and gone. The bikes made it on the trip fine. I have attached photos of the mountings that we used. For mine (1st 3 photos), I ended up using two straps, looped through the space between the frome and the top of the crash bar as the forward ties and then across the back by looping a strap through the spokes and around the tire. This strap had a slight pull rearward on it. What I like about the Harley is that his has rings bolted to the front fork which make it very convienient to tie down the bike.

          What the hell is that a Harley? You're supposed to ride a Roadstar
          You have to be odd if you are number one

            The black one is my Roadstar, my friend's got the Harley (green). And it's his trailer, so he got to bring his bike along. Haha. The Harley is too small for me.
