Trailering your Panigale: which points on your bike did you

Secure the tie-downs to?

Bought a nice little enclosed trailer for the track events. Would like to gain valuable techniques from those who are experienced.

For example; how much should one compress the front shocks, etc.?

Thanks.

(I had a front wheel chock installed as well as four tie-down rings).

Get a Canyon Dancer strap, Baxley Sportchock, or PitBull Trailer restraint (in order of effectiveness).

As above Canyon Dancer is the way to go. Make sure you get the new model with hard plastic end covers as I find they actually protect the grips better than the old style. If really worried about scratching bar ends wrap some cloth around first.
I don't use a wheel chock in my pick-up and compress front forks approx 50% but try and only leave like this for minimum time.

Pitbull trailer restraint system, hands down the best way to tie down a bike in all my years of riding. Then just a loose tie around the front wheel to keep it from flopping back and forth.

Pit Bull : Trailer Restraints

If you must tie down the front, only compress the forks HALF or less.

I Ride: GSX-R750R LTD, 888, 916, 999R, 1199S Tri, RC51, RS250, Z1000SX, ZX7R M2, ZX7RR N1, WR426F
I was using a regular chock with a Canyon Dancer, but read that the fly by wire throttle can be damaged by using tie downs over the grips. The throttle is a pretty pricey piece, so I went to a Condor chock.

Any roll in lock chock (Baxley, Condor, etc) or rear axle chock (Pit Bull) enables a bike to be transported without strapping or with very lightly strapping the front down. If you have the passenger pegs on, make sure you have a good place for tie downs from the passenger pegs to tie to the trailer forward of the pegs. Tying the rear down to prevent it from bouncing sideways is critical. If your tie downs pull forward from the rear it helps compress the front end and ensure that the front end can't come out of a chock, which means you don't have to tie the front end down as hard.

I've got E-track all over my trailer deck and all my chocks mount with e-track clips so I can move chocks and tie down points wherever they will work the best. Enables me to pretty much haul and tie down anything and everything. The best source for E track I've found is motorcycle wheel chock, Bike Pro, Condor, ramps, aluminum ramps, tie downs, wheelchair ramps, wheelchair access, handicap access, handicap ramp, motorcycle transport, motorcycle loading, d-ring, platform lift, elevator, motorcycle locks, trailer lock

+1 on put bull. Have used all the others and this system is by far the best IMO.

Pitbull trailer restraints all the way if you have an enclosed trailer to work with. No compression of any of the suspension. Beats any other tiedown system - especially with the Panigale which doesn't have a decent frame to attach to. ..

If you feel you need a bit more security, you can put a baxley front chock on it as well.
