I saw this unique strap this guy had at the track. he was trying to tell me about it as i was packing up so I didnt really get a chance to take a good look at it. I believe it was a canyon dancer that goes over the handlebars but im not sure. What is the best strap that you guys have seen or used?


by the way....the canyon dancer that is on ebay is mine so dont bid on it:)

I've been using one for years. It's just a strap with a soft felt material in the middle with straps going down each side to hook your tie downs to. Just be careful placing it over the triple tree so you don't put any stress on parts like steering dampers.

actually, they are not. The newer stands from Baxley, Pit Bull and a few others are much better as they don't rely on compressing the forks. The canyon dancers will tear up your grips pretty easily. However, this mod will help:
I bolt the Baxley chock in the bed of my truck. There's NO way, I would rely on just that to hold my bike. The Baxley is really nice to hold the bike, until you tie it down with the canyon dancer/tie downs. :thumbup

Was I the one you saw? Both Dan and I were using them when you were at BHF. Great device.

I bolted mine Baxley to my trailer and I lock the front with that and a hard rubber bungie cord to keep the tire from shifting in the Baxley and the pit bull axle strap for the back. It doesn't move at all once it's locked in.

I use canyon dancers and love them. Also use McCoys bar to tie down the rear axle. Keeps the bike as stable as you'd ever want it.

+1,,, that's the same set up I use. One caveat, don't use the Canyon Dancers on a bike with regular handlebars. I've seen more that one set of handlebars broken from them being cinched down too hard.

If I had a truck or trailer, I would do this as well. Don't see how it would possibly fall over.
