Biker Bar in use

With B&W's Biker Bar, it's never been easier to secure your motorcycle for travel. Just bolt the latching plate to the floor of your trailer, and clamp the included bar to your bike's frame. Once both components are appropriately mounted, simply drive your motorcycle onto your trailer, over the latching base plate, and the bar will automatically latch into the base. No straps or wheel chocks are needed.

Not only does this motorcycle tie-down system make it fast and easy to connect your bike to your trailer, but it also makes it safer and more secure. Because there are no tie-down straps, there are no buckles or hooks to rub against your bike, potentially scratching your paint or trim. And because the bar attaches to your motorcycle's frame, this system provides more stability than tie-downs alone. In fact, the Biker Bar system is designed not only to secure your bike, but also to create a natural ride for it during trailering. Once hooked up to the latching plate in your trailer, your motorcycle's suspension is effectively linked with the suspension system of the trailer, eliminating undo stress on your bike.


Installation of the Biker Bar is simple. The bar itself clamps to your bike's tubed frame, just behind the transmission. Be sure to clear any potential obstacles, such as hydraulic lines or wiring harnesses, that could get caught between the clamps and the frame. The clamps on the bar are lined with neoprene to prevent scratches to your bike's frame.

Once you have the bar securely clamped to the frame of your bike, ride the bike onto the trailer to determine the location where you want the bike to attach. Mark that spot on the floor of your trailer so that you can bolt down the latching plate. You will have to drill into your trailer's floor to attach the plate.

The final setup step is to adjust the height of the latching base. Once the base is bolted to the trailer's floor, ride the bike over it until the bar is directly in front of the base. Measure the distance from the middle of the bar to the trailer's floor. Your bike's suspension must be slightly compressed while latched down to appropriately stabilize the bike during transport. So you must remain sitting on the motorcycle while taking this measurement. Once you have this measurement, remove the bar from the bike and place it in the latching base. Adjust the height of the base until the bar is the same distance from the floor as it was when on the motorcycle. The base adjusts in 1/4" increments, so the height may not be exact. As long as the bar is within 1/4" of your initial measurement, setup is complete.

I love the B&W Biker Bar. We have pulled my HD Ultra Limited in an enclosed trailer behind our RV over 28 states so far. It loads and unloads in minutes, and has never moved at all, even through several full-brake lockdowns and all of the potholes that the northeast US could throw at us! It is a well-designed product. My only question now is what do I do with all of those old straps I used to have to use [Thumbs Up]

Another year into our cross country tour in the RV and I am still loving my Biker Bar. This is one of the best designed, high quality products I have ever used. Perfect!

I bought three of these to use on a open car hauler type trailer I had made to trailer my three Harleys, two Wide Glides & a Road Glide Ultra. The trailer is 20' long which includes a 30" dovetail. It has two 3500 lb axels and is 82" wide inside fender to fender. The Biker Bar performs as advertised. No need for tie down straps. I trailered these bikes 900 miles from Missouri to Colorado and back, along I-70. I-70 in spots, especially going through Denver can be pretty rough. Lots of dips and bumps across all the overpasses. The Biker Bar held the bikes great with no problems. I used some cheap wheel chocks from Harbor Freight on the front wheels to keep the front wheel from flopping, but found out they were not really necessary when the Biker Bar is adjusted properly. Will not use them on the next trip. The Biker Bar is easy to install, just read the instructions and watch the video etrailer provides. B&W you could make the install a one man job if you provided a 3/16" dia hole in the plates that mount under the trailer. This would allow you to use a temporary screw to hold the plate in place while you drill the holes for two permanent bolts. I used a drywall screw and a fender washer to hold the plate in place. Also the two 5/8" dia bolts that hold the Main plate, are not long enough to go through a 1-1/2" board. I had to buy new bolts an inch longer. Other than that, I really am pleased with the "Biker Bar".

Love them!

Finally can write review after 600ml trip. Rock solid! Bike becomes part of trailer. Front wheel dosen't even budge.Had to have underside plates replaced because supplied one's too small for my trailer,(wielding shop fixed that). Pat at etrailer was great! Would and have recommended.

The Biker Bar works great.Love it! Gives us travel options and enables longer trips.very well made 4 stars! Would give 5 but under side plates too small and had to have bigger ones made. Handles 800 lb Road King great

Best invention since the light bulb. Installed in 20 mins and loaded the bike in 2 mins. I have seen this product at a bike rally and had to have one. No more straps.... I have experienced $5,500 in damage when my buddies bike fell over onto mine in my trailer that was secured by straps, if I owned a biker bar then I never would have needed to file a claim on my insurance.

Love it. Best invention since the paperclip. Greatest item ever to transport you bike. I tell everyone about it.

Wry disappointed that after paying for expedited shipping, etrailer waited almost 24 hours to even ship my item. I can understand if I purchased it late afternoon, and then it shipped the following day. But I purchased it in the early morning, and it shipped the following day, which effectively delayed my shipping by a day. Normally not a big deal but forced me to change travel plans, etc.

I will definitely have our customer service team reach out to you.

The Biker Bar is a must for anyone who trailers their bike around. It's simple,fast to load a bike and very easy to install. It sure beats straps!
Totally the best accessory for your hauling needs.
Your ride stays in set position during transit,and is pretty easy to unload.
Great investment.


The BEST motorcycle tie down system made. Hauled three Harley Davidson touring bikes to Sturgis and back and none of them moved an inch. Rock solid.

This tie down system is simply the best. I hauled 3 Harley touring bikes to sturgis and they didnt move an inch. Highly recommend!
Craig - 03/09/2022


Well if I actually got the right thing I ordered correct. You sent me a motorcycle biker bars tie down. Wish I could give better review.


I believe this is one of the best products I have ever bought in my life I would recommend this product to anybody that has a motorcycle that they will trailer with them it is perfect

Great can not say enough good things about great.
Terry F - 04/30/2022


Bracket is awesome. Just got done mounting 4 of them in trailer. They are pricey but worth it. We waited almost 3 months to receive them but etrailer let us know up front they were going to be delayed. Sturgis 2021 here we come!


So far it has worked well; although, a bit difficult to disengage the locking mechanism on both sides to unload big heavy bike...not a one person job.


two reasons I got this one as you can see so I can put my MC on the lift without worrying about dropping it , love it. Other will be to putt on my trailer.


This is by far the best system I've ever used to secure my Hog in the trailer!! ETRAILER, you make the purchase and shipping effortless. Thanks soooo much!


This product is truly great. I can load my full-size Harley bagger by myself. No more straps coming loose, checking straps every stop or having to store them. Highly recommend this product! I will be buying another one for passenger bikes as well.


I have hauled my 800 pound Harley for over 2000 miles using this Biker Bar with no ty-down straps. It is an excellent clean option for my trailer. It is just a little tricky learning how to disconnect my bike, but just a little grease and some practice, and I have it mastered.


It works as advertised. Used it on a 3000 mile (round trip) and it never moved. The only down side is if you have a clearance problem this will add to that. About 1½ inches. Also a little care is needed when putting your feet down as it could be in the way. I'm thinking of moving mine back four inches to solve that. I was Leary due to the cost. I like not having to strap it down. Quick and easy.

Its been working great for over 5000 miles. Moving it back a bit and pumping the rear shocks full of air helps with the clearance issue. But its still close. So care is needed to load and unload.

This thing is awesome! Went to Sturgis and Daytona and the biker bar worked flawlessly!!!


Easy to install, both in trailer & on bike (1984 Tour Glide). Secured bike for 2,700 km trip from Ontario to PEI (friend towed it there in my cargo trailer). No shifting of bike during trip, regardless of road conditions. Haven't used since then but keeping nearby, just in case. Very well made product that works as advertised.


I bought this for my dad and he Loves it!! So much easier to hold the motorcycle in place with no leaning. Great product!

Excellent ! Holds the bike level no leaning and much easier to travel knowing the bike is stable during transport. No more straos!

If I could give it more stars, I would. Such a time saver and safe way to transport my bike. Just have to give better instructions on what to do with the kickstand


We are ready to go Toy hauling with Bikes locked in place . Many thanks to etrailer.


I recently installed the biker bar in my 24 foot enclosed trailer. It was a very easy installation that took about 45 minutes. After the installation I locked in my 2016 ultra limited low Harley davidson. It was a perfect fit. I was and still am amazed how great this system holds my bike down and totally locks it to my trailer. The next day I had to do a test just to make sure my bike would be okay on long trips. So I drove my trailer around doing normal and slightly aggressive braking and quick turns. After about an hour or so I pulled over into a parking lot. I opened the side door to my trailer and there my Harley davidson was still upright and looking good. By the way you do not need any other tie down with this system. This is the best system ever!


This is the only way I would haul my bikes. Have had them for several years . 9000 miles of hauling and not one issue. Have had other bike mounts for hauling and I was always retightening straps. I refer everyone in know to the Biker Bars. Best of all , AMERICAN MADE !!


I needed to assure an 06 Ultra was as stable as possible alongside a Tri Glide in the enclosed trailer, and this product allows that to happen safely. Instructions were easy to follow, and install was without issues. I would recommend for anyone needing to trailer a Harley securely.


Works great. The only problem is you have to be dead center or will not lock. I have a HD Street Glide (830#) so it is difficult
