I don't have enough holiday to do all the trips I want so spending 2 days to gets somewhere by bike and then 2days back just eats up my holiday.
I'm planning a trip to Scotland (I live in south coast) and stay in the van. Each day I'll go out for a ride. Doing the miles to get there in a van is easy but riding 500miles on a motorway is just boring and tiring.
I have been known to take a few bikes and ride a different one on each day, but thats showing off.
I made a plate up that fits into the middle row seat mounts that holds a wheel chock, the 690 fits perfectly
Fly to Australia, buy or hire a bike & do the whole loop, masses of sights to see & the people are very friendly !
I really like that idea. Where did you buy the wheel holders from or did you make them?
It's an acebikes steady stand.
I built a bike trailer a few years ago that uses three of them on a flat base, just unbolt off the trailer and bolt into the van if I only need to move 1 bike.
I fitted some short strips of unwin rail in the floor in the back luggage area and use the motoclix restraints to help keep the bike stable around corners and such.
I like this idea found on the Ducati forum
I've just made something like this but uses the tie down points to stop any movement.
Nice and easy to remove when seats need reinstalled and looks very strong. Ill find out on Saturday when my ramp turns up and can actually try it
