Re: Seeking Wisdom From The Force
I grew up in the Puget Sound area of Seattle and have ridden lots of ferries with my bike. If you are in an inland waterway, (like Puget Sound) all you do is get off the bike, park it on its sidestand, leave it in gear and go up and get something to eat.
If you are on rough water it's a bit different. Three years ago I rode the 20 hour ferry ride from Port Hardy, B.C. to Bella Coola. There was about 4 hours or so of open water. The ferry guys had us leave our bikes on the side stand, in gear and prop a wooden block on the high side under the engine and then tie it down. When you think about it, leaving it on the sidestand creates a tripod and is more stable than on the center stand. And we hit some rough water. No problems at all.
Where are you going?
