That looks very much like my trailer, mine might be the next size up. 6 X 10. But the bike should fit fine plus lots of other stuff. I have the ratchet tie downs and would also use 2 X 4's to build a front chock on both sides of the front tire with two on the floor, two secured to the back and two at a 45 degree snug against the tire. I like the idea of one on either side of the rear tire as well. I still think the auto train may be the best answer. I am moving the bike down about 6 to 8 months before I move. So I would need to haul the trailer both directions.

How much riding do you do around there? Where I live in VA there is outstanding back road riding with 1000's of miles of two lane roads through the country side. I can be in great riding about 1 mile from my house by heading West. Going East is horrible as it is nothing but traffic, but West is great.

I am sure there is lots around there, but so far have not found it.

Thanks for all the information and the offer to help unload if needed. I will let you know what the final plan turns out to be.

Sounds good! Lots of good riding around here - Let me know when you arrive and also what you decide to do about transporting the bike!
