Pit-Bull Trailer Restraints

Hey anyone have any experience with these?

http://www.pit-bull.com/trailer-restraint.shtml

I am thinking about them for the trailer, it should be ready next week. It "says" that it does not require straps ! I call BS but am optimistic.

I have the pit-bull front and rear stand. They are solid as a rock, and I know pit-bull makes good stuff. But no straps? I don't know about that.... I think I would strap it anyways

I prefer using a Baxley chock, and you don't need to mount it.

I like the Baxley chocks they are sweet. So you don't mount it? You have strap mounts in the bottom of the trailer? Would be nice if you were at the track by yourself, then you could throw it under the pit and just drive in. As opposed to the time honored tradition of playing tettor totter with the bike looking for the rear stand

Interesting.... I already have the rear stands though, I don't need both... and I wanted something that would not take up a ton of room in the trailer.

So many little things, too many freaking choices

Appreciate the insight brotha, I know you Motorcycles Unlimited guys know what your talking about!

At the last TD I was at I helped a guy load his bike into that pitbull setup. Its really secure, but kind of a PITA to get the bike into.

I haven't seen one in use and I can't tell from the pics, so excuse my ignorance, but...
The STS system looks like you either have to roll the bike between uprights then install the axle piece or else roll the bike in, then put the base part in placeand then install the axle piece.

Is this close to how it works, because it seems like a little bit of a pain.

STS Stands are the goods. No more time than it takes to secure with traditional tie downs and best part is no compression on your high dollar suspention. STS or Tie Downs, there is no in between.

I went ahead and got the pit-bull stand. Guy had one here that wanted to get rid of it and cut me a good deal!

I am all set, wish I would have seen this sooner, I would have bought it just on principal that I think the pit-bull guys jacked his idea.

I have used the STStands.com for two years now, and they are the shiznit. Pitbull, like with some other businesses, are the late comers and immitators but can't be as good as the original

Check with Troy, he gives CMRA discounts if you have a license too!

I've got 2 ST Stands in my 5x10 trailer. Pit-bull version is a poor attempt at Troy Greens patented ST Stand. I've got mine mounted in the nose of my trailer so I push my bikes in backwards. For those considering either of these strapless systems think about this. The orginal ST Stand by Troy Green has very flush mounting plates and the stand can be remove, the Pit-Bull version mounts are not near as flush. The ST Stand allows for mounting in the front or rear of your trailer (depends on how you want to load your bike), the ST Stand is completely rigid with a bike mounted whereas the Pit-bull does have a little wiggle to it. Finally, with the ST Stand if you get another bike, it only costs $49 to get another axel rod and spacer kit whereas the Pit-bull version will cost you $100. Bottomline is the ST Stand is better.

Another for STS. Troy is local (Dallas) and a racer and cool guy. Not quite as cool as he thinks but hes good.

I use these pitbull restraints. Always have people coming by to look at it at the track when I load up. They werk perfect. No straps needed at all. No worry about leaky fork seals by over torquing the front down either. It's way faster to load up then using straps to. My two other friends I track ride with use them also with no problems.
