HarleyRider,
That is exactly what I was thinking about doing.... Could you do me one favor. Could you take a picture of how you have it married to the D Ring? I'm afraid I could not get a good view in the current picture.

Thank you very much for sharing what you did...

I have the HF "Pittsburg" chocks, had to bolt them to a thin steel plate and then bolt the plate through the floor because the fuel tank was right under the floor in the area where the chocks needed to go.

I wish I had seen or known about the B&W Biker Bar system before I did anything...they were at Daytona with their trailer and a Road King, and it looks like a pretty sweet set-up. Has anyone used that system? I can't find anything negative about it anywhere on the Internet...

Here are the pictures. Measured it out with the d rings and welded the angle iron together. Cut slots in where the d rings would stand up and come through then pinned it in three places. Drilled extra tie down holes if needed. I needed to keep a low profile so that my interior door would open.

Agreed, the B&M Biker Bars are my next purchase. Sweet setup and easy to use. No more straps!! Mounts to the frame and is removable if needed while keeping the mounting secured to the floor. Worth a look. I had a strap fail heading to Daytona, luckily the HF chocks kept the bike up and no damage.

If you don't want to mess with the mounting plate under the coach. Buy threaded inserts. Drill holes. Use gorilla glue and screw in the threaded inserts. Make sure they are flush to the floor. Use a bolt that corresponds to the internal threads. The chock can be removed so you can use the garage.

Greetings from Snow belt Canada, I use the Condor wheel chock in our XLR for the Goldwing , very good quality AND SOLID. Still strap the bike though.
Trailer-Only Chock.
Do not cheap out on quality as bike is worth to much to go down while driving!!
