I haven't used them yet. Still getting the toy hauler together.
From what I see, these are superior to anything I've used before.
Will be used with my GL1800. May be over kill but why take a chance with a 900 lb bike. Quality is excellent. I really like the idea of the safety hooks. Others may be just as good, but the safety hooks made my decision. No way for the hooks to work loose.
Drove from Southern Alabama to Seattle Washington - Couldn't have asked for a nicer product
I'm in the Army and had to drive across country to change duty stations, AL to WA state. I had very high expectations for this product, and to be honest I was also highly skeptical.. Long story short, these far exceeded even my high expectations. I have used regular ratchet straps (in the 4 location method as these) to secure my motorcycle on long hauls before but was always worried the regular Rachet straps would slip off the bar ends. With this product it doesn't allow them to slip off. I would also constantly re-adjust the regular ratchet straps. So I decided if I was driving literally all the way across the country I would invest in something that would also give me a piece of mind, or so I hoped. After I secured the bike in the truck bed with these straps I never even had to re-adjust them, and believe me I checked the straps every time I pulled over for gas, had to take a piss or made it to the next hotel... So for 5 days straight, and I never had to readjust them once. Worked as advertised, and the bike never moved. Need I say more?
