What dirt bike mount would you choose? #MotoVan Build

What about the Motosport Clamping wheel chock? It is way faster, cheaper, and it is not in the middle of your van. Looks like the best choice.

Just stumbled across your channel. Really appreciate your in depth look at setting up your van. Just got yourself a new subscriber.👍

Fantastic Fan seems to be working great. Not 100% sure why the Maxx Air is the goto now, but that’s another one to look in to. As for the awning, I haven’t made any decisions there yet. Working (still) to get the interior done and then Moto in it for a little bit. See what we want or need and then add more interior cabinets, shelves or hooks/etc. Keep braaaping that KX! Wish I was decent at Moto, but if you watch the MX video I put out you’ll know it’s not my strong suit.

+Seat Time I have a 2016 kx450 Pro Circuit upper/ lower clamps Renthal bars , Factory Connection suspension and a few other goodies on it. Great bike and I'm one of the few that like air forks. Live in Maryland so Buddscreek is always a good track to hit up. My local track Is Tomahawk mx in W.V. right over the state line fast track great for a 450. If your ever out this way let me know. Have a great private track as well. The van I'm running right now is a Chevy awd express. Use it for van camping work and moto. I looking into the Bat Wing awning 270 degree system for hot days at the track or camping. Good for shade and keep the rain off of you. Any thoughts on those and how do you like the Fantastic Fan? I definitely need something to keep the condensation out when sleeping in my van.

The Bolt It On system is rock solid once you tighten down the 1/2"-13 soft touch knobs. We have been manufacturing this system in the USA since 2006 and have never had a failure. Also, Beastracks is copy of the Original Bolt It On system. Sad to say but it is my father! Also, there are no comparisons between the two systems. Ours has rust free and serviceable spring loaded pull pins, tapered knobs, laser cut tie down loops and the list goes on. The Bolt It On system can mount to D-rings, E-Track and L-Track.

The Risk Racing do not need to be attached to an e-track. They include 2 plates that mount to the floor and the RR device mounts to the plates. I have the Risk Racing for the van & use the Pit Posse folding chock for a trailer. Avoiding straps in the van is huge

That PitBull is pretty sexy! We're trying to use use the recessed L-Track system so that once the bikes are out we can have a flush floor to move around on. If it's just a day riding, not need to remove anything. If it's a camping weekend, I'd like the floor to be as flat as possible. That's why the plate that stays for the Risk Racing system seems like a foot catcher.

You also have the high-end PitBull mounting system. http://www.pit-bull.com/honda-motorcycles/honda-motorcycles/honda-crf450/trailer-restraint-system-honda-crf-250-450-plus-additional-bikes-see-description-for-details-f0075aw-000

I used Bike Binderz in my van. Slick mounting to L Track, quick and easy to tie down bike. Not sure what any of these would do in a catastrophic collision. So I have a partition to protect the driver in case of failure or accident.

SailorJeffy That’s exactly what I was thinking. I’ll share some pics if I decide to build some.

I'm making my own version of Bike Binderz that uses some soft straps attached to an L-Bracket ring and with a carabiner to the footpeg.

Another awesome product! Crazy though that these systems are so expensive. $200 for chains and a ratchet to tighten them down. I do like the minimalist nature of them though. Once the bike and the tensioners are out, you’ve got a flat floor.

I use the Condor wheel locks for my dirt bikes and my street bikes. Don't even use tie downs. When the bikes are out of my toy hauler I can pull the Condor out. How is Todd doing. I left Colorado and I heard he stayed and raced the Enduro. Heard he broke his leg. Heard the race was gnarly!

I have recessed rings in the floor but unless it my Harley I don't use anything, especially on a dirt bike.

Awesome, hadn't seen these before. How do you mount the Condor Chocks down, E-Track or something different? Todd's doing better, but he's out for awhile :( That Shady Burro looked sick. We'll have to make it up there for the 2019 event!!!!

How about a locking wheel chock? I've seen them, but don't know the name. Seem like they might work well for you.

Yup, those would be great if we had a wall in the van. We just put 5K+ into this Sprinter for engine work. We'll be needing to keep the 144" length for another 100K+ miles. Check out the instagram post I made this weekend, we may have found our answer!

Seat Time, now that I think of it, I don't think they fold flat, but may be removed easily. As far as wheel or bearing damage, I don't see how they could be any harder on things than we are. Lol PS, I found the one I was thinking of on YouTube. LockChock strapless bike hauler.

Have you seen them mounted in a way for easy in/out of bike loading? Since we won't have a partition, the floor of the van will need to be flat after unloading. Also, do those locking front wheel chocks cause wheel bearing damage if used without straps?

I’ve been dreaming about a full time live in motovan for a while. I think the best solution would be to back the bikes into the van. Have a big wheel chock that squeezes the rear tire. Holding it in place and up right. Then you wouldnt need straps. Maybe one just to hold the front tire to the floor in case of a front end collision. The backed in position would also keep the high up and cluttered handle bars away from the sleeping/living area of the van. Some cons would be, You would probably have to make the chocks your self or have them made. Also pushing a bike up a ramp backwards is a pain in the ass.

Interesting thought. Since this idea doesn't have a partition, what about pushing the bikes in from the side door and toward the back. You couldn't have much around the door to do this, but it would get the front of the bikes facing the rear without having to roll them up backwards.
