Securing a bike in the bed of a Pickup
I'm going to be renting a pickup for the few track days I will be doing and was wondering if you have to have a wheel chok(sp) or something of the like bolted to the bed to secure the bike. Or, is it possible to secure the bike in the bed with just straps and those canyon dancer straps. Track day is not until June so I have a bit of time. Any pics would also be helpful.
You wanna see my itinerary?

How you found us: the cops
I never had a problem hauling my bike in the truck without a front chock. No pics, just be sure to secure the straps to the bottom hooks in the bed, not the top (common sense). Also make sure you have someone to help you get the bike in and out if the truck, my tall ass Z-71 was a pain. It seriously was the most stressful part of a trackday, freaking out that I would drop the bike or have it fall on me. Oh yeah, don't over tighten the straps either.
