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

Installation of the Biker Bar is simple. The bar itself clamps to your bike's tubed frame, just behind the downtubes. 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.

Review from a similar Biker Bar in Tie Down Anchors


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. 255131

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

Review from a similar Biker Bar in Tie Down Anchors


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". 428072

Review from a similar Biker Bar in Tie Down Anchors


I love the easy set up. However, I had a problem of side shifting. The bar came out of one side of bracket and my bike fell over enroute. Fortunately, I was periodically checking the trailer and damage was minimal to fairing paint. I solved the sliding problem by screwing down 2 pieces of 2x4 on either side of the back tire. I just leave them in place and drive between them when loading. No more problem. 865815

If you trailer your bike... this is a MUST HAVE! I had the front wheel chock and straps before I got the Biker Bar, sure wish I knew about this before. This thing is amazing! Easy to install and setup. We went to Sturgis last year and people would walk by my trailer and ask What is that and Where did you get it. 100% satisfied with this product! Ditch the straps.com is the website and you really do DITCH The Straps! 809515

Not one for writing reviews. But this item deserves one. Just finished trip to the shores of Lake Erie from central Florida. Who ever invented this Biker Bar is a genius. Drive bike in trailer, done ready to roll. 2400 miles round trip with all kinds of roads under construction. Bike never moved ( awesome) i know a lot of you are just like myself a hard working person and it might seem a little pricey, But worth every dam penny...................... 805325

Review from a similar Biker Bar in Tie Down Anchors


I can’t say enough about this product. I had tried to secure my motorcycle in my 5th wheel trailer with various tie downs and never was able to get it where it was secure after traveling. The tie down would loosen up and I didn’t like the fact that the suspension was compressed. With the biker bar it was so easy to secure the motorcycle and last year I traveled over 10,000 miles and the bike never budged. 768262

Review from a similar Biker Bar in Tie Down Anchors


One of the best purchases I have ever made!!! Super easy to install, super easy to use and when others see how it works, I am cock of the block. Recently picked up my Harley from the dealer after having some service work done. One of the salesmen saw me installing the bar on my bike, riding the bike into the trailer and simply closing the trailer. He wanted to know why I did not tie the bike down. Showed him the biker bar and how secure my bike was without any straps and he was blown away! 765652

To be honest I wasn’t quite sure if I totally believed there was a tie down system that didn’t require straps but after installing your system I drove my bike in and felt it lock down. I had to pull my trailer to my buddies and show them what amazing product it is. When I got home I order another one and just installed today 757128

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] 747331

I ordered a biker bar a few weeks back. Somehow it never made it to my house although it said it was delivered. I was immediately contacted by Etrailer and was pleasantly surprised with the kindness and willingness to help me figure out what happened. I now have my biker bar and couldn’t be happier. Will definitely be doing more business with Etrailer! 725387
