Hauling my GL1100 I ,

Post by velvetrider » Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:08 pm



It appears for the first time I have found a deficit of information, about my bike, on the best way to tie down Black Velvet. I am using the crash bars and D rings welded in my trailer. The front shocks are about half way compressed and the bike is stable. I did the same on the rear. Does anyone have a better method ?? Just thought I'd check. The info supplied here is not showing anything about the 1100 s.

I wouldn't used the crash bars in front they are to low. I'd use the lower triple tree point. Same on the back..use the frame higher up. compress the shocks just a bit front and back and don't leave the side stand or center stand down.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
