trailer set up

Say, I just got a 6x9 trailer and plan on making it a track day trailer. How are you guys setting yours up? And what are you using for tiedowns? I'm thinking of doing a front wheel chock.

This is an open trailer with a swing down ramp.

Might see about posting a picture soon.

Thanks.

I have this one:

... and it works great. I had a regular chock before that and it sucked having to hold the bike up as I got the first few straps on. That chock there holds the bike very snug so you can move around and grab straps to tie down further.

Use a bar harness, then a strap through rear wheel to front to keep it from moving around.

If you have the coin look into the pitbull restraint other wise the Harbor Freight front wheel chock works very well.

Here is a pic ture of the trailer,, its a snowbear 6x9.

I got it for cheap, but its a $1600 trailer.

Maybe some ideas on how to secure the bike in this trailer.

The floor is wood, and it has some metal in the front and down the middle.
