sling thru the wheels

Thanks damurph. Yes I know that an overnight is required.

My concern is that the sideways forces and webbing through the wheels will squish and wreck parts of my Vstrom. Side cases, plastic side panels etc and some controls on the handle bars. So ... that's why my idea of splicing some loops of Amsteel and lifting from the frame under the seat and I'm not yet sure of the front of the bike. But I'm wondering if the crane operator will just scoff at my loops and refuse to lift me. I've emailed the ferry service but their reply is inconclusive. I've not been able to get a definitive answer if the slings must go through the wheels.
