Looking sounds good. The design of your ride exposing your status. Any museum would envy such a huge diversity. It is a ride lover paradise. Really like it.

Angle grinders are some of the most useful multipurpose tools you will eveer have!
In got 3 of them one is setup for cutoff wheels and one with a wire brush wheel and the last one is a grinder wheel!

This is the trailer we currently use. We stopped using canyon dancers because they kept bending clipons. We now use soft straps around the back of the frame and use those as the anchor points to pull the straps forward. Works great and does not put any pressure on the suspension.

Yea, I hated using straps on the clipons as well! Now I just strap the front wheel to the chock, and then strap from the passenger peg brackets (basically the same concept as race hooks) down on each side in the back. It's very solid and doesn't keep the suspension compressed either.

Front strapped to wheel chock:

Thanks for the pics and replies. Trailering the bikes is going to be a first for me. There isnt much room to stagger the bikes and im putting a lot of faith in the Baxley wheel chocks, still going to strap them up. Still thinking everything thru. I can remember going through Chattanooga in a car, but with the bikes on a trailer...ill be clenching so hard I might rip my seat

Murphy strikes! Get into Georgia and ball joints quickly die. Really fun ride the rest of the way. Been up 24 hrs+ sitting at the repair shop.

for the guys with wooden board trailers, where do you store them? If outside, how did you treat the wood to prevent dry rot?

I bought some pressure washed treated wood at lowes, and the wood warped within 2 months from being stored outside?

That lumber will act different when braced in the metal frame. They make composite sudo lumber, could look into that if you prefer.

I use treated pine, but then use a bug sprayer with used motor oil and diesel to protect it every 3-5months.

That sounds like a bad idea for some reason.

I would do it a week before putting a bike on it but otherwise the wood soaks it up pretty good. What better place to get rid of used motor oil and protect your wood! My dad and his grandpa did it for years on all the farm equipment trailers and it had plywood that was not even pressure treated on a trailer for a good 20 years by doing that process. So instead of buying some "wood treatment" i'd rather use what I have laying around. Just don't get caught in California doing this. Someone may not like that in that area.
