    How do I stop my motorcycle falling over in the wind?

    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

    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

    hahaha Seriously??



    Free men do not ask permission to bear arms,An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject,Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.,Gun control is not about guns; it's about control,You only have the rights you are willing to fight for,Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety,You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive,Assault is a behavior, not a device,64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday,All Rights Reserved,The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others,What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?,guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians
