    MY NEW PARKING SPOT FOR THE TROPHY

    I haven't had use of the utility trailer I had my wheel chock on for several years now and the chock is always in the way somewhere just because of what it is.  So, I decided to give it a try for a parking place to see if it would work, and Voila!  Can't tip the bike over, climb on and off without any drama no inkling of it tipping, no issue with putting it up on the center stand, and now I can check the oil level easily.  I'll probably figure a way to secure it better, but it doesn't try to move when using it, and I even have a runway to guide into it! :745:

    That is very good !!!

    To check the oil levels and do maintenance on the bike. Yes, because raising it to the center stand is a great sacrifice.

    To get the bike out of there, is it easy?

    Very easy to roll back out of it.  It's an Ace Bikes Steady Stand chock.  I bought it years ago from Wheels and Wings in the USA when I had my K1600 GTL and had reserved a Wilbers suspension unit with them,and had it on my youngest's utility trailer for a while until he reclaimed his trailer.  I was left with the chock and tie downs (Ace Bikes, that go over the rear wheel and don't stress the suspension but hold it in the chock securely).  It's still available in limited stock on their website.  They still have the Ace Bikes TyreFix Deluxe tie downs too.  Really good system.  Herman was well known for being very good at the installation of the rebuildable BMW electronic suspension upgrade by Wilbers.

    Very well used and useful.

    This German manufacturer sends me emails of its materials and in one of them it sent me this support that apparently is similar to the one you have.

    Very similar.  The only time my K1600 was on the trailer the chock held it very well with the rear wheel strap pulling toward the front into the chock.  One tie down to keep the wheel from coming up out of the chock and secure for any trip required.  I've never trailered the Trophy, had no need.

    Bought a Condor Pit Stop wheel chock because of the quick release in and out of trailer and look like good build quality. Used one time to pick bike up in trailer.
    It took everything I had to pull the bike out of the chock to get it off the trailer! :233:

    Want to use in garage, eventually, to do maintenance and hope maybe I can adjust the cantilever and make it a little easier to get bike in and out!

    It looks very good and looks strong. It also has holes to anchor it to the ground.
