I will be traveling about 250 miles (roundtrip) next weekend to purchase some forks with racetech emulators already installed. I would really like to make the trip on my SV, as there are some beautiful stretches of road along the way, but I don't know if that's even possible. Can a pair of SV fork tubes be safely secured to the back of the bike using webbing/ratchets/rope/bungees? Or should I just suck it up and drive the car?

And a pic just because!
Here's a picture of my buddy wearing a pair of new tires for a 2 hour ride home


(BTW, I'd take the car)
