Wheel chock for trailering?

I'm considering a wheel chock to trailer the speedy with and have heard about the Baxley Sport option. Anyone using Baxley or recommend another brand?

Does that bolt down to your trailer floor? And do you use tie-downs in the back?

I am currently using a "roll in" chock from harbor freight that has worked like a champ. I have used it both bolted down and not without issue.

PitBull makes a unit that locks the rear of the bike in place..... Of course it MUST be mounted in the tow vehicle....

I have a Condor. Can be mounted in a trailer or truck or van. Pricey, but all aluminum, well constructed and sturdy.

I just ordered two of these, one for my Speed Triple and one for my Street Triple:

Kinda pricey but seems like the best set up.

Well a few options I wasn't aware of. I appreciate it. I like the Pit Bull stuff but would want it for the possibility of hauling other bikes as well. I'll have to check into that further.

It can and I have a wooden deck. I would use tie downs front and back. I like the canyon dancer tie downs but they wouldn't work on my bars since I have bar end mirrors.

Baxley Sport Chock is amazing! I use it everyday in the garage & have used it in the back of a truck with handle bar tied downs as a precaution but not a necessity. Love the back you don't have to bolt it down so you can use it anywhere. I use a cheap no slip rubber mat under it I bought at Home Depot as it makes it comfortable to work on the bike & keeps it from moving as I ride onto it each night when I park it in the garage. I tried the cheap one from Cycle Gear that is the same as the HF one but the fit was so tight it took all my strength to get it out! Took it back that day & ordered the Baxley! Best stand of any kind I have ever owned & so good I was able to buy a $59 rear stand for cleaning/lubing chain & rear wheel as it is so stable you can use anything to lift the rear. I bought both from www.dicountramps.com as they had a fantastic price with free shipping & no sales tax!

Yeah, they are backordered at Discount Ramps currently until later this month and do not have free shipping or I would've already bought there. MotoMummy (???) has them for a higher price but no shipping which makes them about $5 cheaper. I don't know anything about MotoMummy so I just may wait.

Just got my Pit Bull set ups and it looks like the brackets are universal but the pins for the rear axles can be swapped to fit different bikes. You'd just have to buy the pin kit for whatever application. I'll try to post pictures.
