I am going to trailer my KGT to my folks in a week, I am gonna use a Canyon Dancer on the handlebars to secure it to the trailer, I would ride but the whole family is going, the wife myself and 2 dogs, cats are staying home.
I have had both wheels off the bike by balancing on the center stand with the rear of the bike tethered to my boat trailer, thus keeping the front in the air. I removed the rear first and used ratchet strap to secure the bike.
I always keep the bike in gear when sidestand parking, it is the ONLY parking brake on the bike, I like the sidestand, I always have a small piece aluminum sheet metal and a plastic disc for the stand foot to rest on if needed, some think it leans too much, my VFR didnt lean enough and was always at risk of falling away from the sidestand on any road that wasnt dead flat.
I dont think my batt light stays lit as long as yours
