  1. There's nothing wrong with that, rezrider however - this system eliminates the need to compress your forks too heavily; since you're using the rear wheel to secure the bike. Handle-bar tie-downs aren't used if you look closely. Not compressing the forks for that long drive to the ride area has to be a good thing for your forks seals, right? I used to travel to an area frequently which involved about 20km of rough gravel roads; which had the bike jumping on the trailer. Tying the wheel down does reduce this, but tying down 3 bikes in the trailer isn't as easy. Once you've used these I don't think you'd look back. They also use system this for sportbikes. I agree though - each to his own - these aren't as cheap to buy as "normal" tie-downs. It's good to see how different people come up with these ideas though eh?

    Thanks mate. I would have liked to have an enclosed trailer for the toys, but having an open trailer gives you more options for usage (thus justifying the expenditure....) It fits a HP2 (l-o-n-g wheelbase) and the XR400. It has been designed to accommodate 3 dirtbikes for a good weekend's riding. The tow vehicle is up to it: 260L of diesel (over 1000mile touring range) upgraded engine mgt system & heavy-duty offroad remote-reservoir suspension from "Old Man Emu" 3.5T towing capacity 3.5" stainless exhaust twin air-locker diff-locks on-board air compressor (handy for trailrides) secure tool stowage ....and lots of other bells-and-whistles Landcruisers are popular in Oz...with good reason Cheers, Dave XR400 (I had to buy one of the last ones) HP2 (rare as $3 bills nowadays...)

    dsa-racing on ebay

    I've had the same problem with this guy. I'm not going to say too much until I receive the unit - let's just say though that the service is less than ideal, in comparison to other eBay vendors in the USA thta I have dealt with (I live in Australia) Cheers, Dave XR400R 2005
