Cycle mounts

Bought a Thor 37BG this fall, just in time to store it for winter!

I am searching for cycle tie down/mounting products.
I am leaning towards the Biker Bar from B&W trailers.
I have a Harley Ultra Classic bagger, and a Yamaha 750 we plan
on hauling in the spring.

Anyone have any feedback on the Biker Bar or any other recommended mounts?

The biker bar is awesome. Used to haul my Street glide with a chock and straps until a ratchet failed on that smooth as glass I95. Baggers arent easy to strap with all the farings. The biker bar is well worth the money imo.

:agree, although I use more straps on my bike. Would hate to have one malfunction.

I am still searching for dealers in Central Pa to do installation.
Have not found one that I have confidence to install in an RV

Cycle mounts

I use a Biker-bar by B&W Hitches. I installed it myself in less than an hour. It works flawlessly for my RoadKing. No need for additional straps.

First...do you have beds in the garage you plan to use? Most wheel chocks are a pain if you have to remove them to keep from tripping on them.

Are you going to haul the exact same bikes every time? Biker bars have to be adjusted if you want to haul a different bike.

Just bought a "new to me" toy hauler and I was going to do the biker bars...but after much thought, I went with fold down wheel chocks because it take 2 seconds and they are flat to the floor.

And 2 of them cost less than 1/3 of 1 biker bar.

These work great. I have a couple dirtbikes, and a couple street bikes. Heaviest is 550 lbs, and with a couple tie down straps, they don't move...http://www.pingelonline.com/wheel-chocks/wc650-removable-wheel-chock-6-1-2.asp

Saw a bar system in the interwebs that connected to the floor tie downs. No drilling or holes in the floor. Couldn't find any info about it so I made one. Turns out it was called "Bolt-It-On" Or "Beast Racks" (They may be the same- both companies appear to be based in Paso Robles, CA) I used collapsible floor jacks and made it to come apart in the center so I can use it in our 16' enclosed trailer. The 2 Condor chocks fold down flat and bolt onto the bar. (the one not in the pic is in the 16" trailer.) It is very solid, an 1800 Goldwing trike and a '13 Triumph Bonneville T100 are chocked to it, and tied down with ratchet straps. The unit folds up flat and is stashed in the storage area where the upper garage bed was when DW sends me to the garage "man cave", AKA the "get out of may hair" area.

I use the Harbor Freight Motorcycle Wheel Chock, just like the Condor one, I made a quick adapter plate that I screwed to the floor of our TH so I can remove the Chock and when you roll the carpet over the floor, you don't know the plates are still there. I also use the Cargobuckle system. and have hauled our Harley CVO Limited and CVO Streetglide all over for a couple years now.
I just set the Chocks under the ToyHauler and cable lock them to the frame so they don't walk away.
I used this system when we had our DP and used a cargo trailer, and in our last 2 ToyHaulers. Works great for us.

wheeldock.com is one I use. Its worth a look , no complaints. If you can get underneath your floor possible where it has the optional mounting plates. its not going to move and support over the roughest ride with no worries.
