If you are going to use a pickup you also have to consider how you are going to get your new pride and joy in the bed of the pickup without dropping her. Best thing is to find someone with an enclosed trailer set up for bikes. Ask the local shop. It might be worth a few bucks to pay someone to help pick it up. The Canyon Dancer is a perfect way to tie down the front end. The Baxley is a great choice and you can simply place it in the front of a trailer or pickup bed and strap down the bike properly. It won't move as it has big rubber feet. You will have the added advantage of using the Baxley in your garage...or living room! Be careful and good luck.
