Any Rune owners?

My father in-law just bought his retirement bike, a rune. We are heading for Honda Hoot next week and I was wondering what would be the best way to secure this bike on a trailer? The sport bikes are easy, just use a handlebar connecter with two hooks at the end to put straps to but I worry that this is not enough on such a heavy and expensive bike. I am curious is there is a better way than just securing the bars and running a strap aound the back somewhere? I would hate to see this thing laying over in the trailer when we unload.

Re: Any Rune owners?

Do you have a wheel chock of any kind? The typical two tie-downs up front and pssibly two in the back are just fine for a Rune.

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.
