Default Re: Transporting a motor bicycle - on its side...

Thanks for the links 2door

I was able to put the bike in the truck and hold it at about a 40 degree angle.
I used the red tie down, attaching it to a couple brackets that hold the shell in place. I was worried about putting to much stress on those mounts though, so I looked for something to hold it up from the other side. I got lucky and found this old sponge mop that wedged in there nice and tight! The sponge and brush at the bottom worked perfect, protecting against scratching, fit's perfect between the seat post and friction mount area. It sat that way for a couple hours before I took it on a 25 minute trip across town. Unloaded it and it started right up on the second pull, no problem.
