Question How do you transport your 600RR??

I just bought a 600RR and I wanna take it for a spin on all Euro tracks every now and then, but a couple of hours on this bike isn't that much fun. I need to find a way to transport it safe and easy. What do you guys suggest and why?

Pickups (or vans) can go over 55 on highways here in cali. Trailers can't.

My truck and Trailer:


Then I use a wheel dock on the front with the pit bull rear, then I tie the bike to the stand and the stand to the trailer. Never moves and only takes 1 strap per bike...



"at 8k i often get the tire to slip a bit(kinda like stoner in motogp) when i start to get on the throttle"

^^ I have never seen anyone tie a bike down this way. Papasmurf, have you transported your bike like the very far or often? It looks like the front would be likely to wash out causeing the bike to fall over. From what I have seen, most people, myself included, hold it down by the clipons and strap the rear down to keep it from bouncing or moving lateraly

actually its funny the way I strap it down but it works, the big white strap is a ratcheting type that has a 6000lbs breaking strength, and I crank the hell out of it and it compresses the front end really well, and the back one wraps on each side of the swing arm and attaches to the bed just even with the foot pegs, it works well and I have gone over 100 miles like this at highway speeds, and it works just fine, I am always scared of attaching anything to the clipons cause I dont want to break anything...but my wierd way seems to work, I usually put one around the front rim to hold it in place too.

Also I keep my kickstand down like if the bike were sitting on the ground...I have to get wheel chocks for the bike, but I may buy a small trailer just to have a easier way...and I take my bike all over the place like this and never had a problem.

^^ thats cool. I was just curious because I have never seen anyone do that and because it looks like your front tire is tweaked out and that would concern me.

no I actually have the bars turned and locked, you would be surprised its rather effective and safe, at least it seems to work for me. I know what I am doing, I have been trailering cars and boats for about 10 years so to me a little bike in the back of a pickup is kids play!

you need two people if you don't have a ramp. just stand on both sides of the bike grab the fork and handle bar, lift the front and place the tire on the tailgate. then pick up the a$$end and roll it forward...it's hard to explain but simple to do.

I'm planning to buy a Class 3 or 4 trailer hitch for the SUV, along with a hitch mounted Motorcycle Carrier.
