Looks like the coolest thing in the world, and will totally be a better way of transporting the bike. High quality! :clap:

I hope I can use it without removing the Ohlins damper...

I was able to with my RC... Just get it under it first, then strap it down over your bars...

Thats what I was thinking...should be A-O-K! :) I am reading up on the Tie-Down Strap comparison test plus trailering tips in the December 2003 sport rider (glad I keep these things) and it's helping tons. I really never have transported the bike longer then 100 miles before.

Those things are the shiz! I trailered my bike ~1100 miles, a good part of it through mountains with one of those. Didn't move an inch.

I hate mine, always F's up the grips. I just run soft ties through the frame now. Works with a 929, not sure about an RC.

I looped some tie-downs onto the grips once. I wrapped the hook around the grip, and came back over, and down. Since I like to protect my bikes on travel, I got that thing so tight, that it pulled one grip part way off. and twisted the heck out of the other. (way to go! :clap: ) I then did the soft ties to the section of the clipon where it comes out from below the triple, this was the 929 BTW, the RC's are on top. That worked very well! (again, this was for like 100 miles.) I am hoping to never do that again with my grips. that was before I bought this canyon dancer, I just got this today.

I use soft straps only and circulated around the upper triple clamp/fork leg so the can't move. I wouldn't put anything on the grips under any circumstances (I have seen the throttle pipes turned into ellipsoids from Canyon Dancers and using soft straps on the grips).

I wouldn't put a tie down hook on anything on the bike, even a footpeg (that's what soft straps are for).

Yeah, I was a dork, and learned that the hard way. But, never cost me anything but grips. *thank goodness*

I prefer the way Conq uses...softties around the lower triples, second set on the back. I do that depending on the bike. I learned a method that utilizes 2 straps only, but it doesn't work on all bikes. There has to be a place lower on the bike, around the footpeg area (but not the footpeg!). I wrap a softtie there, then pull it about 45 degrees forward. A wheel chock must be used. It compresses front and back suspension without tweeking on the forks. Works best on Ducati frames!

Yup, it screwed up the grips on my old 929. PITA

I use the Canyon Dancers & love them!!! The 929 grips would move slightly, but not enough to cry about. The grips on the 600RR don't move at all. Maybe some glue would help some of you guys out :idunno: .

I like mine too, it's the easiest way to strap 'er down, especially all by myself. They can tweak the grips a little, but if you don't smash the forks ALL the way down (I leave about 1/2 the travel) and use a couple tiedowns on the rear, the last few times I've hauled her, the grips were fine. :thumb:

Check this out. I think I've found my transporting solution for Mr. Widebody. They were on eBay awhile back for $79.00 so I e-mailed the guy and he's got several more in stock. This is my next purchase...

That looks like a pretty cool idea
