Thanks onewizard... I can snag my brothers enclosed trailer for the trip...we'll be picking up 2 Versys that day...my 650 and my brothers 2018 1000 LT...he's not a member here yet, but will post up a pic as soon as we sign the papers..
I'm a little concerned with the tie downs in the enclosed with the 650 not having a center stand...think I may have to order the paddock stand a little earlier than I planned...
If you watch the U Haul video , excellent anchor points, you are courting disaster with 2 bikes in one trailer, unless it is a Tridon used for snowmobiles with the floor anchor points. Trust me, when I sold my 07 Versys, buddy comes with a trailer for dirt bikes, I offered to help tie it down and offered bull rope, both my help and materials were refused. He made it 3 blocks, hit a pot hole and destroyed the left side faring, the guy who owned the trailer is the one who refused, the friend bought the bike, buddy promised to replace all the damage, when he discovered it was close to $300, he patched it for him.
Unless you have numerous floor anchor points I would suggest buying or renting a wheel chock, pay attention, the good ones are ones with a front wide angle attachment and also with anchor points. You can beef up a cheap one by welding a angle iron to the front and drilling holes, both for anchoring and fastening ratchet tie downs.
Personally I looked at renting a enclosed trailer, what put me off was the lack of floor attachment points, and no wheel chock, the front wheel moves left or right, it is going down, and may damage the second bike.
This may sound crazy but I used a large hardwood skid, upside down and some 2X4, took some screws, my sawzall , battery drill and impact driver, drove the bike over the skid and then blocked the wheel in, looped bull rope around the long parts of the skid and then used my ratchet tie downs. ( this was done years ago using a rented trailer, on a 650 Yamaha , while picking up other stuff)
