How To: Safely Tie-Down a Motorcycle.

I dont necessarily agree thats the "safest" way. (especially on the handlebars)
I do see they mention an "optional" chock. In my experience... I would rather have the chock than the tie downs if there was a choice between the 2. Of course having them both is preferred.
If the front of the bike is securely fastened (chock and tie downs) the bike isnt going to move...even in a crash or roll over.

Used to haul my MX bikes all over Indiana on an open trailer, and hoped for rain to wash some of the mud off before I got home.

There is an aluminum ramp that is attached to the carrier and I would just push the Helix up the ramp onto the carrier. The carrier ramp then Stowe's on the rack with two machine bolts. No wrenches required bolts have a plastic knob on the end so you tighten with your hands.
