I'm going on a trip next month with a buddy and we're thinking of hauling the bikes on a trailer part way.... (waits for the scorn from the members). I have never loaded a bike on a trailer before and need some advice on how to strap them down. My buddy's bike only has a side stand (it's a HD). I will be riding a R1200RT. I searched the site and only found one hit with the search term 'trailer', so it appears I have to subject myself to ridicule.
So, compress the forks & rear suspension? Sidestand or centerstand for my bike? How do I keep them from moving forward or backward? Any other things I should be aware of? Thanks for any help.
