Rode pretty nice once I figured out where to tie down at. Had it all planned and working with my old bike just had to adjust for the 9.

Looks good. What are the dimensions on that trailer? Looks like it would hold 2 bikes pretty easily if needed and that what I'm looking for.

Mine is a 6x10 and holds both of our bikes nicely.

I just purchased a slightly used Kendal folding trailer that I have been wanting to try. I only use it to take the bike in for service. The one I had before was a 5x8 from Northern Tools with a wheel chock from Harbor Freight mounted to the front. Worked great. The Kendal is set up for 2 large cruisers, 3 dirt bikes, or 2 ATV's.

I also like to tie down at the lower triple tree it makes the bike more solid and it does not put a lot of pressure around the grips or wires that run along the handle bars I alway tie down the back it will shift over rough roads and a must if hauling two bikes harbor freight wheel chock rocks :bigthumbsup:

it is a 6'5" wide by 14' long. I think that if I position them right I can get 3 or 4 on. I used to get 2 bikes on a 5' by 10' but it was tight and you had to make sure that the mirrors didn't hit while transporting.

I thought about leaving the back unstrapped but being a truck driver has left me somewhat anal about load retention so I have a tendancy to overstrap.

I remember when I loaded my bike up to head to the dyno and go down the street from my house and remembered that I didnt strap down my bike. So I pull on the side of the street and the bike was still upright in the wheel chock.

does anyone use the handle bar straps? For the ends?
If your talking about the "soft straps" that are nothing more than 2 loops that you attach the ratchet strap end to, then yes I use them all the time on my bikes. So far I love them.
