Etrack install

I want to use the etrack system to tie down my Road King, and my wife's Can Am Spyder. It has been suggested that I can use lag bolts and just screw the etrack to the floor without going all the way thru the frame. Suggested that I put a lag bolt every third hole and that this should hold the bikes. Any ideas good, bad, or ugly. This would simplify the install of wheel chocks and tie down points, but I will admit I would have better piece of mind with the etrack being bolted all the way thru the frame, which would require dropping the fresh water tank. Any advice?

In my enclosed trailer I bolted down through the floor but not into frame. Every fifth hole with a large thick washer on the under side. I don't trust lag bolts to hold down heavy machines. Are you going to use the wheel chocks that connect to etrack? It's a great option.

I have a 34 FK that the previous owner used for hauling 2 Road Kings. 4 e tracks the length of the cargo floor, bolted completely through the wood floor. Fender washers on the underside, and stainless bolts no less. Don't need to catch the steel frame. This is the same method we use in the house hold goods moving business with 53' Kentucky trailers. Lags are just not enough with a 3/4 floor.
