I don't know about the tie downs, but you could buy a wheel choke to put in there. Cut 2 2x4s and use them as spacers for the walls so it doesn't move.

Yup... several times! If you're taking a mattress, put it up against the wall, put a furniture blanket over it, and squish bike up against it.... works like a charm. Just be real careful on the ramp.... slippery when wet... try not to end up on YouTube :retard:

I had the same issue with a uhaul truck. There aren't any hooks inside. Only spots for the special rachet straps on the sides of the truck. I ended up just stuffing my bike between mattress and couch. Worked pretty good. I drove from flagstaff to phx like that and the bike never moved. Good luck! Careful on the ramp. That's the freakiest part.

This kind of strap

I used ratchet straps and tied down two bikes across a uhaul from the boards on the wall. Front and back were secured. I stuffed a futton mattress in between the bikes and covered them up with blankets. Make sure you tie down along the board where there is a large rivet so the boards don't flex to much. I had my CBR, my wife's R6 and my sons 50 all stuffed in with our stuff. Nothing moved or got scratched, it was a good move. The hardest part was loading them up the ramp.

Good luck.

I know you're not using a u-haul anymore but I just got my bike home last night using a u-haul cargo van.

I'd say going up the ramp is super easy as long as there's a helper. Coming down the ramp was very difficult. We had a close call but I was able to hold on to the bike and stop it, adrenaline really saved the day right there (I'm 5'9" and less than 130lbs...haha)
