Warm wishes to everyone,

I have a light weight motorcycle and park on the road outside my house. During windy weather conditions my bike often gets blown over to my annoyance. Is there a device or piece of kit I could buy to secure the bike so it doesn't get blown over? If anyone having any idea relating this topic please suggest me.

Best Regards,
Anthony Martello

I think your looking for a motorcycle forum, but in windy conditions you could always just lay it down instead of letting it fall over?

We use this one at my shop K&L Cycle Dock - Street Motorcycle - Motorcycle Superstore (http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/14/71/993/4136/ITEM/K-L-Cycle-Dock.aspx)

Allows you to chock the front wheel and then we use ratchet straps to secure the bike to the chock. you can see the tie down spots on the chock in the pictures
