Default Cross country tie down points

According to the manual, tie down points are lower triple clamp (which i dont really need as i have a nice cradel for the front so will just tie off to keep from moving back). Now the back says the swingarm. anyone use something different and have a pic of how you tie your baby down? If ya use the swing arm ..do ya have a pic of her tied down so i can get an idea of where to put the tie down point on my trailer.

thanks
Hammy

if your on a lift table or trailing it down the road NEVER NEVER not tie down the front end.
Its so easy to do and gives you insurance on not tipping over. Go off the bottom triple tree.

for the rear foot pegs or tire so it doesn't hop sideways. It will if your trailering it

only a fool would take a chance with a pride and joy

On my lift table I use a jack under the engine & wheel choke of the lift

Then I drilled 4 new holes into the table to ty-down 4 straps onto 4 pegs .... Not tight, just right ....

On my lift I added 2 wratchet tie downs with tie points. Run straps through crash bars on either side . Keeps it straight up. And of course there is the front wheel clamp too.

When I have trailered my bike, I tie it down by going through the triple trees on each side going forward to the tie down location, then I use another strap through the rear wheel straight back to another tie down location.

3 straps used. 100% solid mounting.

When trailering in I always use 4 tie downs. In front I use loop straps either around the true/fork tube or lower handlebars to my tie down strap. Mostly I've always used Pingel wheel chock. In the rear I use bag guards or foot boards/pegs.

On the lift table ALWAYS tie downs in front. Unless working on the front then in the rear. My trike I don't always tie down. Not to worried about it tipping. I do clamp it in the wheel vice though.
