Loaded up this morning and ready to roll south ... look forward to seeing a bunch of you guys in FL, sorry you all could not make it.





Picture showing LA Chock. The front straps are "loose" and only on for balance.

On my first trip with the Boss in a trailer the front stayed tied real good but after 700 or so miles I checked it and the rear had almost hit the side of the trailer.
Moral is be sure to tie the rear wheel so it can't jump around.

Your so right Adrian . I installed 2 heavy duty fold down rings in my trailer floor in line with the rear wheel . One just in front of the rear wheel and one just behind the rear wheel . I have a 2" wide ratching strap that I loop around the tire from one ring to the other and ratchet the srap down real tight . I think with the front tie down straps I use and this strap around the rear tire holding the rear wheel in place , I could roll the trailer over and that bike wouldn't move .

Oh yea the rear was secured too! I just didn't show that picture :D



Those are two inch ratchet straps on the rear both pulling forward into the chock ... she don't move anywhere when tied in!

Jack,

I hope you have an uneventful trip and I'll see you there next weekend. So you drive an Avalanche? I have a good friend that has one also and runs a forum for AV's...check it out.

Ya it's amazing how many people own these ugly Avalanche's . Very versatile and comfortable but not the prettiest 4x4 to come down the pike .
