Yes…I think I've read all the trailering threads but I'm specifically concerned about the front nose clearance on the MP3 at the front of a uhaul 5x9 with ramp utility trailer. I'm used to having bikes all the way forward with the front tires snugged to the front of the trailer and then the suspension1/2-2/3 compressed with ratchet straps. I'm thinking that maybe a piece of 8x8 across the front floor of the trailer would give enough of a spacer effect that the front nose/hood wouldn't risk touching or get damaged? Would at do the trick?

Dont forgot to say the magic incantation after securing the bike in place.

"That's not going anywhere!!"

Otherwise you risk offending the trucking gods who will refuse to bless the cargo. Laughing emoticon
