    Wanting to get a wheel chock for my GS

    Greetings everyone. Can't wait for the rally this year. One thing I'm wanting to get a wheel chock to help hold my GS. I want one that is adjustable so if I need to haul my RT. Thanks for your input and see you at the rally.

    Here is one specifically for the BMW, was in the GS section at Max BMW's site.

    This works on both the front and rear wheels

    For additonal portability you could add some wheels.

    If it's to be mounted on a trailer...I have several of these...the base plate stays and the chock is removable. I have them in some enclosed trailers as well as on a "rescue" flatbed and being able to take the chock off returns the trailer to utility use. One person hassle free loading without having to hold the bike while you reach for the straps. Used it on H-D's, 1200RT, 1200R's , GS's and so on...have not found anything it will not hold...you still have to use additional straps for securing totally

    Are you planning to trailer the GS behind the RT?

    Baxley Sport Chock - a little pricey but it's the best chock I've used.

    Get it here? (NOT SPAM - JUST THE MANUFACTURER)

    This chock tightens onto the tire as you drive into it. It locks so the bike can't roll out. I've used it to haul many bikes (Ninja 250s, a few dirt bikes, Stroms, Busa, GS, and metric cruisers) and it never fails.

    Just have to be willing to part with some pretty serious coin. 250$ + shipping?

    I trailer my R1150R in my Gator trailer with a Harbor Freight wheel chock($29.95 on sale, $39.95 regular) and it works great If you are level it can be used without a helper and will hold the bike for you to strap down. I would never pay more , as what I'm describing does the job as well as possible. I have a white oak floor in my trailer and it is simply bolted down to the wood. Dont buy the cheaper one that is tubing only-get the Haulmaster that rocks forward as you ride on.
