So I recently purchased a bike in the United States, and I will be eventually bringing it back here in Canada.
I am most likely gonna take a truck or trailer and load it up on there. Maybe I'll borrow a pick-up or a large van, or maybe I'll even rent a U-Haul truck or trailer (they even have a motorcycle trailer for this specific purpose).
So what's the proper way to tie it? My biggest worry is figuring out how to tie the damn thing so it doesn't fall. I've looked at a few YouTube videos, but many of the methods I've seen seem a little too Mickey-Mouse for my liking.
As it is, riding the bike is not an option. I do have a complete Class 6 license, but I obtained that only a few days ago; I am not 100% confident on highways (yes, there will be highways on the way home).
Another reason why I'm unwilling to take the chance with riding is because this is my first sport bike. I've only ever ridden dual-purpose bikes, so I'm not really eager to try something new on roads that I have little experience with.
Back on topic, how should I tie it? If it makes any difference, my bike is a 2009 Ninja 250. Speaking of which, would two people have any trouble lifting it (in case I borrow a pick-up truck without a ramp)?
