I second the use of a Baxley sport chock and Cycle Cynch. The Sport chock does not have to be mounted, just put it at the front of the pickup bed or trailer. You do not have to compress the fron suspension so much when one of theses is used. Also the Cycle cynch is better than the Canyon Dancer in my opinion because it is easier on the switch gear and grips. Good luck and have fun!

Transporting a bike is hassle without the right kit. If its going in a van, be sure you strap that bike down or it could well fall over. I would of thought riding would be a good option stopping for water if its that hot.

I will throw another vote in there for the Canyon Dancer. Easy to use, doesn't tear anything up, and have never let me down in about 6 years of riding and hauling!

You live more in 5 minutes on a bike like this, going
flat out, than most people live in a lifetime.

Check your local Uhaul (or online) to see how much it cost to rent a motoryclce trailer for one day. It's usually around $17 to $25. Those trailer have a ramp the width of the trailer so getting it on or off is no problem.

I use Canyon Dancers and their okay. Once, I think it put some marks on the hand grip so I usully put some tube socks around the grip BUT have to make sure they don't cause the Canyon Dancers to slide off.

I also put a strap around the rear tire (with a soft piece of cloth around the contact point). I thought think you need to strap the rear down but it's just an extra piece of insurance.

I've used the U-haul trailer for may bike about four times and only dropped the bike once but that was when I was doing the job myself and had no one to hold the bike while I tried to strap it down (sidestand needs to be up).

I'm really bored at work:

Per Uhaul's site, a 5 x 8 open traler is $18.95 for 24 hours and a 6' x 12' is $29.95. That's in Tulsa, OK. I'm not sure if the enclosed trailers have the hooks for a motorcycle but it'd be a good choice if the weather's bad.

Hmm..I wonder if we could do something creative..I need to drop my bike off there sometime,depending on what day you pick yours up I could maybe drop mine off at the sametime and you could use my trailer,but then you'd have to bring it back to OKC sometime before I pick my bike back up....I dunno,just an idea. The trailer is enclosed and plenty big and safe!
