Ancestry says I'm 20% Scotch myself. Who would have thought?  :grin:

Scottish Chuck, Scottish!  Scotch, as you well know, is my favourite drink. (spelt with no "e" of course). :grin:

For those of you on this thread with the Baxley Sport Chock (not the LA or other models) and a V7 with the 100/90-18" wheel, does the bike fit well and snug in the Baxley sport?

According to the Baxley website,  It's meant for a slightly wider tire and a 17" wheel. I called Baxley and spoke with Chip there (who is a very nice, patient and knowledgeable) and he felt the Sport could work but it wouldn't be as snug as it would be with a wider tire. Unfortunately he couldn't comment specifically on the how it would work on a V7 front wheel.

So, if you have a modern V7 (I to III) and the Baxley sport, how does it fit?

Thanks
James

You could always get an old tire, cut it, drive into it while inserted into the chock to give you some extra "width" to snug it up.  Add some extra straps as some others have mentioned for extra security.

Unless you've got a bunch of people jumping around, it's not going to fall.

My 2012 V7 Racer spent most of its life when parked in the garage in a Baxley Sport chock. No extra tie downs just push inlet go of the bike and walk away. YMMV

Just got my Baxley LA Chock yesterday.

Rock solid with my 2015 Triumph Trophy in it.

It's adjustable, and it will take a few tries to dial the adjustments
in for each of the 5 bikes I own. Once I got it right, I can push the
Trophy in and pull it out by myself. You'd have to be doing something really
stupid or not paying attention to knock it over. (Not saying it can't be done,
but it's really stable.)

A very nice piece of kit. Expensive, but so's picking up your bike and
buying bodywork......
