Hey, Bill - while you're waiting on Ari's response, take a read on #8 under the general info block here. Pics, as well as text outlines on tying down the LT. Good luck.

BTW - I got there by typing *Tie down* in the general search block. Takes a leetle navigating to get there, butt there it wuz.

Re: Ari help - failing memory

Thanks Dick - Ari turned me on to a set of cast aluminium brackets that he used to ship his bike to Canada. They looked easy & slick - with no risk for damage to the LT...

Would that have been the Strongback from Nicks BMW. I have one and they work great.

No, not StrongBack. I saw them in Gunzenhausen, small bracket that bolts onto each foot peg bracket and stays in place, and a niffty bracket that slips over the lower triple clamp under the headlight. Both allow you to feed a webbing belt through to tie things down. Ari will chime in with a name.

Re: Ari help - failing memory

Hi Bill,

You were probably referring to this set:

http://www.wuedo.de/indexeng.htm

Scroll down on the page. The set is quite pricey (especially due to the exchange rate).

The front piece that gets mounted between the front forks has really been used once (on the flight back to Europe from Toronto). Flying out from Frankfurt to Calgary the freight company people refused to use any of my own tie-down equipment! They just said that they have their own certified belts and methods and they only use them. And besides, nobody will keep track on what belts and straps belong to the client and what are airline property.
Heh indeed, how correct the German freight company people were!
On our way back the Canadian / Indian / Pakistan freight company in Toronto was happy to use our tie-down equipment (as they probably had no better themselves). And in Frankfurt cargo, we spent 20 minutes looking for our own strap belts since they were just thrown on a pallet with dozens of other belts...
All this is of course irrelevant for those who use the set for their own transport purposes and keep track on their own belts and straps...

Anyway, the little aluminum loops that bolt permanently by the footpegs I use regularly when travelling on ferry boats to the Baltics. But similar ones could easily be made DIY.

Re: Ari help - failing memory

Thanks Ari!! That's the set. $309 + shipping is cheaper than BMW replacement parts... they are perfect for the ferry too.
