Question New RGU Help!

Hoping for some help as to the best way to anchor my bike in a trailer. Hauled it one time attaching tie downs to the bar ends which I prefer not to do. Have a Condor chock. The EGU fairing allows the use of the handle bar base near the upper triple clamp. Thanks in advance for the suggestions. Greg

Soft straps. Loop them around the frame above the crash bar. or if you have highway pegs on your crash bar loop them there. But soft straps are definitely the way to go.

I’ll second the biker bar. Have one in my enclosed and love it.


If you don’t wish to go that route or for infrequent trailering, I used to thread the ratchet strap around fork tubes just above fender mount and fastened them in front of bike to hooks in floor. Run strap through back wheel and hook behind bike. Snug everything up and there’s no load on suspension. Worked great. Old mechanic showed me the technique.

This approach should work with your Condor wheel chock. I use a soft-tie (versus hooking an s-hook) and also put additional straps around the rider floorboard mounting bracket and tighten to snug (not more than the rear tie-down have already been tightened). Works great!

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.

Whatever kind of wheel chock or tie down you use, stack a piece of 2x4 on top of a piece of 4x4 & slide it under your frame towards the front. Started doing this when I trailer the bike & it makes it rock solid when you cinch it down on the block
