Wheel chocks , which ones ?

I know I've seen this here a while back but could not find it. I would like to get the BEST wheel chock system , to bolt to the floor of an enclosed tr. What I want is to go strapless and be able to hold the weight of a goldwing and also of course a sportbike with "NO" side to side movement , will be buying two, best quality is key !

Thanks in advance for any ideas pictues or places to see !

Front Wheel Chock = Baxley or Condor
Rear Wheel Support System = Pit Bull

Baxley typically gets top honors, but to mount permanently in a trailer I think you want a Condor.

I have 2 Baxleys and they are the sturdyest front chocks out there period. You do have to use straps though, but from the pegs, not the bars. I have the trailer mounting kit which is only 4 bolts in your floor and then the chock can be removed by removing 2 allen bolts with the supplied wrench.

I have 8 Condors (used to have Baxleys and sold them).

For flexibility in application, easy install and removal from trailer (easier than Baxley) and a wider range of bike sizes supported, Condor wins hands down.

Only two straps required as well.

For a strapless solution, I have Zeus9R's strapless solution. It works great!

For a gold wing your gonna want the condors, they can fit the larger tire of the goldwing. My baxley doesn't work at all with my Harley. the front tire is too wide (same size as your wing) get the trailer only condor, I think 5axis on this site has them for 160 bucks.

Try the Baxley LA chock made specifically for bigger bikes and cruisers.

Once again, the condor supports narrow OR wide tires. The Baxley has to have the one that supports the correct one. Not very flexible.

But hey, sounds like Black954 really wants you to buy Baxley. Not sure if he is familiar with both... but what the heck.

Thanks Tony. We can hook you up with condors. Condor is a local Illinios manufacturing business and run by a former CCS racer. The trailer chock is well over built and if you are semi creative, with some angle iron and a few bolts you can make your own "pit version".

Baxley is a tube bending company and has some cool engineering behind them. The baxley trailer is brilliant!
Condors are Dekalb farmer, rugged and simple in design and execution.

Yup, he is the best deal around. When I buy some to replace my Baxley, they will be coming from him.

The LA chock can be adjusted to fit all size tires. Sounds like everyone is getting paid by Condor to push their product so who cares if I offer a quality allternative? I am familiar with both, I would rather support my $35K bike with a sturdy steel chock than a flimsy aluminum one. Who cares if it takes 30 seconds or 1 minute to remove it?

LOL I made my own brackets for the Bakley to use in the trailer. Took 15 minutes to mount them both to the floor and only 30 seconds after that to lock the stand in the trailer. 2 bolts total to move in and out.

I never did like the Condor's. Seemed too cheap but others have had luck with them.
