Motorcycle wheel chocks are an excellent way of transporting a bike or multiple bikes inside a trailer or vehicle. Whether you have a self-contained moto van or a full-blown bike trailer, you might want to consider utilizing some type of wheel chock system. There are many different types of chocks that range from a basic tube style that simply hold the front wheel in place, all the way up to elaborate mechanisms that secure either the front or rear wheel in place. Most of them have some type of mounting points that needs to be installed in your rig or on the trailer so they can easily be removed to make room to walk around when you are not hauling bikes. Others are mounted permanently to the floor for maximum durability. The good news is that there are lots of options for any price range or needs.
The Condor PS-1500 Pit Stop is the culmination of years of research and development on the part of the Condor company. With the Pit Stop you simply roll your motorcycle into place and the front wheel is captured within the wheel chock with no need for a tie-down or sidestand when used simply as a stand in the garage or paddock. When used to transport a bike, you can lock the Pit Stop into place with its proprietary mounting mechanism or utilize the common E-Track setup found as original equipment in many modern trailers.
The Pingel series wheel chock system is excellent for use for transporting multiple sizes of motorcycles inside an enclosed trailer or on a flatbed trailer. The Pingel system allows you to easily change the location of the wheel chock using an E-Track system, which allows you to position multiple bikes in varying configurations so the motorcycles don't interfere with each other in the trailer. It's a tried-and-true system that has been around for many years.
The Rage Powersports three-position self-locking wheel chock is built from heavy-duty steel and is available at a very affordable price point. This is important if you are hauling bikes on a budget. The downside to these chocks is they need to be secured to your trailer, and from there you have the three positions available to adjust to your needs. Not as versatile as other options, but the price is right.
The Risk Racing Lock and Load is the ultimate chock system that clamps down on the footpegs of the motorcycle making it an innovative solution for your transportation needs. The manufacturer claims its design “saves fork seals drastically by reducing fork seal pressures.” Installation is necessary, but once you have that dialed in, locking and unlocking your motorcycle in and out of place is done in a few simple steps.
