    Default Trailering Tri Glide

    Looking for opinions securing trike in cargo trailer. This is a 7X12 Haulmark Low Hauler trailer. I have a Condor chock and also strapping the forks pulling forward. My concern is strapping the rear end. If I cross the straps using the frame loops it puts pressure on the exhaust. Am I okay not crossing them and running the left strap to the left side loop and the right to right as pictured?

    Glad that works for you. Taking my trike into consideration, it looks like my CSC will never fit in there.

    In addition, I would never be able to get off the trike and out of the trailer. This is probably the one reason I might consider an open trailer.

    With a 7’ width I have 14 1/2” on each side at the rear fenders. Plenty of room to get off and walk around the trike. I have a side door as well. What is the width with the CSC conversion?

    Thanks - my trike is 76.3 (TriGlide is 65.7) inches wide and 113.3 (TriGlide is 105.1) long. Side door seems to be very helpful.

    Back looks fine.

    I don't know about those carabiners up front though.

    What are they rated?

    I would wonder about the carabiners Brian, everything else looks good. When we trailer, I run the front straps right through the front wheel with soft ties. Don't forget "transport mode" when pulling out, thankfully I haven't forgotten yet.

    The working load limit is 800lbs. It does takes some effort to back the trike out of the Condor chock. I don’t think it’s going anywhere.

    Over the years I have trailered my TG in a couple different trailers. My preference is to cross the rear tie downs off the factory loops but sometimes that does force the straps up against exhaust and/or clamps.

    The 14' enclosed that I recently set up for hauling my TG didn't come with hooks in the floor so I was able to install my own. I have the rear ones installed even with the back tires and not very far behind them, thus allowing me to cross the straps and not get into anything. I also use two small Harley sling loops off each side of the front axle to ratchet strap to so I don't need any type of chock.

    My 19 Tri is 55 1/2” wide. I’m probably closer to 14 1/4” on each side.

This three-wheeled touring motorcycle offers a comfortable and stable ride, perfect for long journeys.

    65.7 is the wheelbase. That’s the distance between the front and rear tire. The width of the trike is 55 1/2”.

    Your CSC would fit just fine in a 7’ wide trailer.

    Spring has been late to arrive here. We just had our first 80* day last week. Then Friday was a record low temperature at 56*. You picked a good time to visit. Next week will be very pleasant with temps in the 70’s to mid 80’s.
