DLSGAP, that's the one Tony told me about but I just couldn't remember the name. I'm gonna look into getting one of those in the future.

I have all 3, Canyon Dancers, Cycle Cinch, and Troy Green's STStands.com, beyond a shadow of a doubt the STStands are the best of the best, that said when I use my Kendon trailer I can't use the STStand so I use my Cycle Cinch which has integrated straps.

Since I got my Cycle Cinch I haven't used my Canyon Dancers at all (I've got like 3 I think...) except to load out to friends who need something in a pinch. If it weren't for other folks needing them I would have tossed them all away in lieu of the Cycle Cinch

Like everyone says, I have used canyon dancer for years and they are good but do mess up your grips, recently I bought 2 baxleys and they are awesome, but I really think the pit bull would be the very best, and they arent that expensive about 270 per bike I think and U can get different pins for different bikes for like 100 each, so kinda expensive, but worth every penny and very easy

just go to a junk yard and find a cheap axel.. mines off like an 88 k car with a dodge bolt pattern with aluminum sides and you build a floor and I put removable aluminum ramps down all sides.. very simple to build a trailer.. but now days just buy one for 300 from nothern tools or harbor freight

STS is good stuff, but PitBulls are better

Easier to use.

That looks a little on the short side
The wheelbase on an 08 ZX-10R is 54.7in
That trailer is 50"

! I have always used the Canyon Dancer. Now I am going to have to purchase a Cycle Cinch and/or a chock! I just love when the UPS driver comes to the door with M/C stuff!

I have and use both, but the Cycle Cinch is really tough on the Ducati grips. Either one with a Baxley and your good to go.

I have the Canyon Dancer 2 and have had good luck. It has cups on the end to keep from damaging the grips. If the Cycle Cinch would have been available locally, I'd have probably gone that route based on reviews.

Another good investement
I use the Baxley, but also strap it down using a Cycle Cinch. I probably don't need to, but I feel more secure doing so. I don't compress the forks too much, though, but just enough to keep it snug.

I like the Cycle Cinch's adjustable strap, so it doesn't have the possibility of spreading out and off the ends of the bars/grips. Dunno about the Canyon Dancers, since I never owned or tried one.
