Nitro 31 XLR

Looking to install a recessed motorcycle cradle in my xlr, any suggestions on floor joist spacing? Or maybe another kind of cradle

Does your 31 have a belly pan ( coroplast) covering? I can see what lies beneath my garage floor easily. I used the recessed chock in a 21RR for a single MC. It had its advantages but for me I prefer the Condor which I move and use at home as well. There are many ways to skin this cat. How many bikes and their weights have to be considered. BTW a recessed box would not work well in the floor of 29 since the rear grey tank is right where I would want it to fit.

I've used a free standing with the front tire strapped to the stand with no issues for over 5 K miles.

I'm a big fan of Biker Bars. A little effort to install, but makes loading and unloading the bikes a breeze.
