    Towing Question

    Can you strap the bike down enough while it was still on a rear stand? I would think that this make the bike more solid in the trailer, and put more of the weight against the chock instead of on the bars.

    People have done it, but it's a bad idea IMO. It puts stress on parts of the swingarm that weren't meant to handle that type of stress.

    I would not recommend a regular stand as it could pop out. However this might interest you. It seems like it would work but has limited application.

    Yeah, that one would put stress where stress is expected.

    I'm going to buy one of the ST Stands as soon as the snow melts and I can get to my trailer. I like the concept a lot...if it works.

    Smitty, if you do try using your rear stand make sure the tie downs angle out fairly far from the bike. Otherwise it can be tippy. I used my rear stand once to trailer my bike a short distance and almost dumped it when it started to rock after I hit a bump in the road.

    Get a good front chock and tie all straps pulling forward.

    Thank you boys, I appreciate it.

    I think I'll play it safe and tie her down normal.

    It works great on a stand. That is the only way I travel. The bike doesn't move at all now and it is more stable than not using the stand.
