Re: Need to haul my lt
My BMW dealer sent me this file. It was my first time with a big bike, trailering it home as the snow fell.
I borrowed an enclosed trailer, and doubled the straps to each of the 4 points listed in the BMW memo.
At the rear, I screwed two 18 inch L-shaped pieces of 2x4 (each made of 2 pieces, screwed together) to the floor of the trailer on either side of the back tire, to further dissuade any side movement of the rear end on bumps.
I remounted the metal chock in the centre of the floor (the Harley's the trailer owner hauled were much narrower than the LT), and braced it with a 2x6 gig screwed to the floor/braced to the front of the trailer.
In retrospect, it was overkill: it didn't budge a millimeter.
But better safe than sorry....
