Motorcycle Chock Questions

What is everyone using?

I currently use one from Harbor Freight 1800 Lb. Capacity Motorcycle Stand/Wheel Chock but it's kind of a pain. I have to use straps to hold into place so that I can drive into it. Once I am locked in it doesn't move. Then trying to remove the motorcycle I have to have my wife help push to get it out. When it's just the wife and I storage is no issue but when the kids come with us I need to have it somewhere so they don't trip over it. So I am looking for something that has a base I would mount to the floor and the actual chock be removable and smaller than the HF one.

Titan Bulldog chock. Very small plate attached to the floor wit two wood bolts. Chock slides into grooves in the plate and held in place with a single bolt.

This one is easy to ride into. As soon as the front wheel is in the "sides" of the cradle compress against the tire and you can walk away. For traveling all you need to do is use straps to compress the forks about one inch. Very stable. Keep in mind that any good chock will have the front wheel over center and you usually need a little push or pull from a helper to get the bike out. That's a good thing because it shows the bike is being firmly secured. If I'm alone I just raise the front of the trailer so the bike will roll back easier.

I use the "Wheel Dock" and it works great for my ultra classic. At home I store it on the lift table drive it on and hit the lever with my left foot and step off. On the car hauler same wheel dock with front and back straps, have never had a problem even on bumpy roads.

I saw a guy using this model Bike Pro Motorcycle Wheel Chock Black Removable Chocks | eBay in his fifth wheel and he really liked it. Once removed there was just the plate on the floor that was fairly flat.

We use Pitbull products, no straps just rear tire. Not sure if cruisers have them, but most sport/touring bikes are covered.

That's the same one i use . load and unload myself . a couple lag bolt holds it to the floor securely .no extra straps needed . once set up and unloaded remove the couple lag bolts pull the pin on the chock it folds down and store out of the way . of course you may just want to spend a lot more dollars for another that would require the same thing .

How do you determine where to place your wheel choke? Do you want the bike half way in front of the axles??? Where would you place the choke if you want to haul two bikes? Would you stagger the bikes or load in single file? I guess you would put the heavier bike up front...??? I will get my new Wolf 26 RR 2nd week in July, so I kinda need to come up with a plan....

I used a Sherline tongue scale to position the bike for optimum tongue weight.

Motorcycle Chock Questions

I tuck my HF chock under the foldable couch of my camper when not in use. Out of the way and no tripping on it. Picks of it all ready to ride into and ready for storage. Added quick screw handled for easier breakdown.

I get motorcycle out of chock myself. Make sure bike is in neutral. It's easier then just pulling in on the clutch.
