securing my scooter in the MH garage

I have now bought a 125 yamaha and looking for an easy way to load it and secure it in my MH garage. I've told there is a company in Germany that can offer this but not sure who it is.

Can anyone recommend a system to load and secure my scooter
thanks
Wayne

All you need is a ramp and two tie down straps, job done.

You certainly don't need anything expensive.

Agree with Tony above.


I lean the bike against the rear wall. I put a strap around the rear rack and down to a floor mounting underneath the bike and one around the steering column and down to a similar floor monting.

My scooter (Honda) has a hand brake that works on the rear brakes (you pull the hand lever and press down on a catch to secure the brake lever in place) and this holds the bike very firmly.

A friend of mine does the same with his scooter. No need for expensive racks.

Personally I would have a U-section of ally floor plate fixed to the garage floor which prevents the tyres from sliding in the direction of motorhome travel under heavy braking. Especially so if the tyres are wet as you garage the bike and you avoid - as you should - compressing the suspension with the straps.

Local Boatbuilder formed 6 ft Al checker plate into a U section 25.
Then I bent the last 12" up to form a rear wheel stop.
Screwed to the Garage floor. I clamp the internal Cycle rack clamp to the handle bars and a strop through the front wheel pulling the bike down and back against the ramp stop. "Simples".
