Avoid These Frequent Motorcycle Towing Mistakes

You’re probably aware of the emotional bond that most motorcycle owners have with their bikes. It’s something that I can’t explain, and if you’re a motorcycle owner I know that I don’t have to explain it to you. As a motorcycle tow operator I can tell you that I’ve met my fair share of bikers who have had to have their bikes towed and have come to me with horror stories of previous tows.

Look, towing a motorcycle is not easy and that is why, in my opinion at least, it’s always best to get a professional to do the job.  Here are some things you should know about motorcycle towing that frequently seem to go badly.

Tie It Tight!

Motorcycles are towed in an upward position, which means that they must be strapped in securely before they are towed. The motorcycle will be moving around a lot during the tow, therefore it must be held tightly in place.  An experienced tow operator will know how to secure the motorcycle in the safest manner, using the correct equipment needed to do this, suited to the shape and type of motorcycle.

The Correct Equipment Matters!

As I was saying, it’s really important to make sure that the correct equipment is used to tow your bike.  Not all motorcycles are built the same, and that means that they cannot all be towed in the same way, or using the same equipment. It’s important to know this and to make sure that when you call a tow company you give them the correct details about your motorcycle and where it is to be towed to. They will send the correct equipment to you based on these details, so it matters!

Give It Some Room!

No matter how well the motorcycle is tied it will move during towing, when the truck hits a bump or so forth, so it’s important to leave a little room in the front and back of the machine. Don’t worry, an expert will have this covered.

The best way to avoid anything happening to your bike is to make sure to work with the right guys. Your motorcycle is precious, so make sure that the operators taking care of it are trustworthy, experienced, licensed and of course have the same mind-set as you when it comes to taking care of your ride.
