Great idea!

Hi everyone. Just purchased a 2014 27HFS. Planning on hauling my 2010 CVO Ultra in it. I have Harley's version of the Condor Pit Stop. Wanting to haul the bike without bolting down the chock. Will the bike try and walk around or will the straps be enough to keep it stationary? Any advise on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Oxxer, depending on how you tie it down it may want to move around some. If your pulling it forward and out from the front and pulling it back and out from the rear it should be fairly solid. It will be difficult to get a good forward pull due to the locations of the front floor tie down points. Personally I would mount the chock to the floor making it removeable.

We have two bikes that we put in the back of the TH listed below. My wife's BMW R1100R rode great with unsecured condor chocks and four point tie downs. My Honda ST1100 which is close to 700 lbs and has more weight up high would shift while traveling. We ended up paying a independent RV tech. to lower our 100 gallon fresh water tank and install the mounting kits. Since then, both bikes ride in the garage well with no movement.

Take a few test runs and see what you think works for you.

Hey thanks for the reply's. I will have to figure out a way to secure the chock. Fresh water tank is right in the way. Have either of you ever heard of or tried a threaded metal insert? Years ago I bought a cargo trailer that someone had put theses inserts in (they did not go all the way through the floor) and they were flush with the floor. Very easy to remove the chock when not in use. Thanks again for your thoughts.

I just finished installing a condor in my new wpt30wr. I debated the same thing with the water tanks etc. I just finally stood there and went why dont I weld a plate to my wheel chock and then weld the plate that makes the condor removable to that.

I did add 2 additional chocks plus another center row to the standard chocks so I have 3 rows of 5. All I did was take the second chalk in, unbolt it from the floor, weld my plate with the removable mount to it and bolt it back down, do other steps needed, worked great!!!

Oxxer, They must have moved the tanks on a 2014 27HFS. On a 2013 there is room between the black water tank and the fuel tank. It is the same open area that the factory used to mount the forward tie down ring plates.

Yes there is room between the two tanks but due to the length of the bike the chock needs to be up to the wall. The black water tank is directly below the wall.

Now it just becomes decision time Drop the tank or fabricate extensions to the chock.
