Welcome. Wise choice.
Putting new rings in the center is no big deal. There is a 2x running lengthwise down the center easily found with a stud finder. 3" hole saw on your drill 2 screws and a medium weight d ring. Be careful of the HF chock, it is made for up to 5" wide tires (127 mm) and the 1800 is 130 I believe. My Honda Valkyrie has 150 MM and I had to modify it.(not easy)I would go with the condor for the wing. Remember the important thing is to have strong rear ties so it doesn't slam forward with braking and doesn't dance around over bumps.As for getting it off I don't release pressure on the back two straps until I get it down. Gives a little extra help. Good Luck

I've never had an issue getting the Harley out, some times takes two attempts. Very first time was hard because some cuzdog idiot left it in gear, want move that way for sure.

When it is just my wife and I taking our Kaw 900 Custom out I sit on the bike and pull at the same time she uses a crow bar to pop it free. It gives her the leverage she needs to free it. If my buddy is with us we do the same thing except he just pops it out with his hands on the forks. Either way it works well. If you are drilling holes in the floor Riderbloke has an excellent post on here about adding additional D-rings. And welcome to being an owner. Can't wait for Winter to pass so we can take ours out again!

I think you are referring to the patio deck sidewalls that fold flat for travel.

I should have been more clear. I have the Vengeance 25V which is basically the same floorplan as the 26RR. Just has a higher payload.

Emm-dee: Yup! You got us all excited. I would love to have this option on my 26rr. Actually, my dogs would love this option on my 26rr. One of these days I will upgrade. For now, ......

It doesn't look like it would be too hard to come up with something like patio rails for the 26RR. I might play around with that, but it would be a while before I do.
