Give me your knowledge, oh great people of the Rebel3 forum!
With the Rebel being my first bike ever, my general know-how around bike related things can be questionable at best.
I've recently gotten myself a trailer to make things a little easy, so that I can get around on vacation this summer with both my car and bike in one swell swoop.
But! I've got some experiance with having cars on a trailer, and how to secure those to make transporting safe.
But never done the same with a bike before.
So what are the does and don't when it comes to hauling a bike?
From what I've gotten my head around I've seen some securing bikes by the wheels, and by the handlebar, wich seems reasonable.
I assume the same goes both for cars as with bikes, with not wanting to "tie them down" by compressing the springs/suspenssion, as that gives unwanted tension, you want the suspenssion to be free and moving about in bumps. Or am I wrong on this assumption?
And is it ok/normal to secure the bike while it's on its sidestand?
Every piece of advice/knowledge is appreciated!
