Like all builders, having crisscrossed the country so many times, I know too well that most motorcycle accidents happen in the trailer. Whatever the number of bikes you trail, their types, the initial strap down setup you give them, most methods will require minor adjustments all along your trip. Or damage to your bike and its neighbors can be very costly. Because of their weight, fairing, accessories, Softails and Baggers are especially a pain to tie down securely for short or long hauling. To resolve this issue for good, fellow builder Mike Tomas, whose professional life is entirely devoted to re-engineer different parts for Classic Indian motorcycles, got a simple idea….for your Harley.
His bracket system can attach permanently to your bike (contrary to the pictures, it’s black powdercoated to blend with the frame like it’s part of it.) It is designed to bolt to the 2 lower tank mounting bolts and to the bolt that holds the front crash bar to the frame. It takes a few minutes. It’s that easy. Left permanently bolted on your bike, strapping it down is now a piece of cake and all vital organs are cleared. Think of it as a permanent insurance policy that you pay only 1 time per bike. 3 versions are available, 84-08 baggers, 09-12 baggers and 2000-08 Softails. Made in USA. 59.99 for bagger models and 69.99 for Softail models (plus shipping). Order at Kiwi Indian or call Mike on my behalf at 951-780-5400.
