    OK, My wife went to the Dealer and got me a Shipping crate for the Sporty but failed to ask how to secure it. The crate is approx 96" long by 39" wide. There are 2 eye bolt near the front of the crate but nothing else to secure the bike too. Does anyone have any pics of how the bike is secured to the crate or any other tips. Will be crating and loading the bike into a 40' container for our move to Ireland in a few about 6 weeks.

    if its the turn wheel galvanised stillage they use a molded plastic protector on the fork legs n use ratchet straps through the triple trees down to those screw in eyelets, 39" might be a straight wheel i think, for flh's, so just park it in there n strap it through the forks,
