whats the best way to trailer the 109 on a flat trailer :dontknow:,do you put the kickstand down and then strap it down or leave the kickstand up and strap it. i've never trailered before any insight because i sure dont want the silver bullet to fall over. :(

thanks :dontknow:

Some times it's better to put the front wheel in a corner of the trailer(I'm guessing it has side rails?) and angle the bike across the trailer. You can use the side stand,but I never have. Use Good Ratchet straps,on the front ,and rear,and check it around the first 50 miles. If the straps are still tight,your good to go! :bigthumbsup:

It's probably not a great idea to keep the sidestand down. It is a good idea though to somehow chok the front wheel, then use at least four good quality ratchet type tiedowns. To be safe, ask a HD owner.

And we all know what happens when the side stand is damaged ::)

I trailer mine everywhere I go(except for around town!!)just in case there's a great day or road to ride.Like everyone has typed,make sure to put it in a chock up front,DOUBLE strap with good straps,and leave the stand up.Don't strap it down tight,you'll tear up the fork seals,leave some movement up front.As far as the rear,I just run a strap through the back wheel and pull it snug.I had problems with trailering my Buell....thats when I figured out the importance of 2 straps.
