Getting ready for Bike week in Daytona (really early lol)

Hey guys,

Had a question about a good front wheel chock for the RG when towing in a trailer. I got the CVO 19inch rims so that is definitely in consideration, also will be towing my buddy's 2014 SG. Basically looking for a good front wheel chock that can be removed off the trailer when not in use. Been seeing prices around 90 bucks online, but I know you guys know way more about this.

Any help will be appreciated!

Most of us know nothing about towing, riding is a different story, but not towing. Not trying to be a butthole but I couldn't help it...lol

I have used a Condor in the past. It is adjustable for different tire sizes and removes easily from trailer when not in use. Two steel mounting points stay in the trailer, but they are flush with the trailer deck.

Oh no worries, I know what you mean, and I plan to ride longer distances in the near future, but with my friend just getting his bike, and also his gf sorta not wanting to do the trip on the back of the bike, I decided to just tow them down to the spot and go from there.

Thanks for the information about the chocks guys, will check them out. Seen a couple removable ones on amazon for about 120. Good or bad price?

Based on the number of moving parts I bought the Harbor Freight chock. Has worked fine the times I have used it. Usually on sale for about $50.

+1 for Harbor Freight Chock Block.. They are better ones out there, but for the purpose of it & price, you can't beat it. Under $50 not including the %20 off..

I use the Harbor Freight chock as well. I put this in the trailer, set the bike on it and then strap it down. I run four small decking screws through the holes in the chock to hold it in the trailer.

I've used this set up every time I go to Daytona for Bike Week. Wisconsin to Daytona and back with no worries.

Another for the Harbor Freight/Condor copy chock. Stays bolted to the HF lift most of the time, unbolt and bolt down in the trailer as needed. I made a copy of the HF copy to use when I need to haul 2 bikes.
