I bought 8ft of 3inch. Alu channel from Grangers
Cut it to 6ft drilled holes 36inches apart and used the MC tie down eye bolts to mount the new bike track to MC carrier
Use ratchet straps to hold the bicycle in place, and cover both with a large motorcycle cover,
Going to replace the skinny cover "tie in place rope"
With more MC straps to make covering and uncovering faster and easier chore


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !

Carefully placed cut & shaped pieces of pool noodle,
Protect the bicycle paint job from tie down strap wear and scratches , my scooter has been riding on the rear of a Motorhome since 2010, first the safari dp and the pass 3.5 years on the Bounder, and it paint is faded out, plain flat basic black, if when the scoot gets painted, I'm thinking 2 tone maybe green & gold or orange and blue , either way re-cover the seat in white, I'm not fond of Hot black seats in the summer time

Looks like that channel is on an angle, I wouldn’t trust that very long. And you have nothing holding the wheels into the track.

The bicycle track and the motorcycle track are square with the carrier tubing, itis the carrier that is on an angle, beçause the Hitch mount is bent, the scooter and bicycle are vertical, , the carrier is not horizontally true aka parallel to the street, I have put straps around the bike tires since those pictures were taken, with cargo ratchet straps holding the bike down, it's not going to jump out of the rack track
