Trailering a 2016 SERG Ultra
« on: January 26, 2019, 10:02:45 AM »

I'm wondering if any other members have found a good way to strap down their 2016 SERG Ultra on a trailer? The brackets made by HD don't fit this model as I guess they don't clear the fairing. What options do I have that will safely hold my bike in a friends trailer to Daytona and Sturgis? I can't attach anything (as in a chock, etc) in his trailer. Any suggestions?

Hopefully the trailer has some kind of a chock, maybe not a drive-in step-off but something? Recently saw a bike at the local dealer where the guy set it in front of a U-Haul truck on the kick-stand, strapped it down and away he went. Kick-stand bracket bent, straps go loose and bike fell over. Rode that way, on it's side for an undisclosed length of time, Pretty nasty damage.
I use Kiwi-Indian manufactured front Tie-down mount and Yelvington Rear tie-down brackets, all pulled to the front with the bike in a Condor. Have towed same way using a Pingel. Secure as I can get it. Used to tow for a living and I appreciate the fact you are searching out the correct method. Lots of bad info out there, be wary.

I use a condor and tie downs on the crash bar, never a problem 1,400 miles one way from Michigan to Daytona

I’m no tie down expert but have had good success with a condor chock, one set of straps with soft ties to front fork fender mounts and a second set of straps to rear wheel.  Just for piece of mind I usually put a third set of straps from front fairing underneath braces just snugged down to help stabilize bike from rocking side to side as much.  All my straps have safety clips to keep them from coming loose if a sudden bump causes slack.  I’ve only trailered a few times as I prefer to ride it unless wife is going riding passenger. I used to tie down rear to rear bag guards but was warned that can cause damage.
