    Timdog,
    How did your YZ / Beemer make it to Nebraska? It looks like it is up for sale (central flee market).

    For those unfamiliar with this storied steed, it has the ability to quickly convert from a long-travel dual sport to a low ridin' flat-tracker. Just add washout / bridge abutment.

    Guys,

    just bought a toyhauler RV so I can be like cousin Eddie . . . .

    What is the best motorcycle tie-down system? This has aluminum floors which I will roll carpet over, so I need something that can be detached and then covered over with carpet smoothly.

    Appreciate any advice!

    Randy

    The shitter's full, Clark.

    Bruno has a cool system in his rig that anchors the bikes down using the foot pegs. Very cool.

    You weren't kidding when you said you were looking. No VRV?

    There are several choices, but I'm no help to you without more data. Or at least some pics. However, I agree the setup that Bruno has that holds the bike via the foot pegs is definitely a slick and secure set up where you don't need to deal with straps and such.

    Thanks for the comments. Here's a view, if that helps. No e-trak to pee in (sorry Jon and Matt), but I can provide a bucket or pee-absorbing mattress if that will float your boat:)).

    So Matt wants to pee in it and now my name comes up!? WTF.

    Nice score! Does this mean your going to stay at camp with us and get college drunk at every ride from now on!? Better start practicing. You've got all winter to build up your tolerance.

    Randy, I am not aware of anything that would be perfectly flush to the floor. I have the pingle removable wheel chocks in mine, and really like them. The little brackets are small enough that I hardly notice them under a rug.

    Carpet in the garage:huh Don't forget to hold your pinkie out when you take your boots off outside. And wash the bike so it doesn't drop dirt balls on the carpet. Don't forget to dry it off so you don't have any drips on it either. Aluminum is a lot easier to sweep off.

    Kennedy, It's an ATC Quest 7x22 - almost identical to the Quicksilver cuz it's built by the guy who founded VRV and he is licensed to build similar units. I wanted an all-aluminum so I can tow it with a Grand Cherokee. It's pretty spartan, but yes Jon, I will be able to drink Sleebobitch ad nauseum and fall onto my forehead without getting a DWI. Unless of course, we encounter some drunk groom from the UP and try to kickstart the bike at 1 in the morning then ride around . . .
