The Pit Bull Trailer Restraint System redefined how motorcycles are transported. It holds the bike from its rear axle and allows both tires to rest on the floor of the trailer or transport vehicle. It offers the following three advantages:
- There are no straps holding the bike down. This minimizes the space used in the trailer and eliminates the chance of damage caused by straps.
- The motorcycle rests on the trailer floor with no added force on the suspension. This means no more blown fork seals caused by heavy strap tension, and a flat tire on the bike will not change how securely the bike is held.
- This is the quickest, easiest system available for loading/unloading your bike for transport. One person can easily roll the bike into place until it is captured by the restraint.
Sold complete with bike-specific mounting pins for your bike, floor mounting hardware, and even a bungee cord to help keep the Trailer Restraint out of the way when you are moving the bike around with the restraint installed.
The Birth of the Trailer Restraint System
Pit Bull had been building motorcycle stands for nearly a decade when
long-time friend and AMA crew chief Keith Perry asked us to build him a
motorcycle transport stand like he had seen in the Moto GP paddocks in
2003. He gave us a good idea of what he was after and Charlie V
designed something for the Team Hammer race team's transport. While
functional, Charlie V was not satisfied with the overall design of the
product so it was not brought to market.
Fast forward to January 2007. Charlie V is driving back from a
motorcycle show and thinking about a better way to build a Trailer
Restraint System that will be secure and yet still easy to use. By the
time he arrives at Pit Bull, he has designed a new motorcycle transport
stand in his head. By July we are in full production and introduce the
new Pit Bull Trailer Restraint at the Laguna Seca Moto GP round. One of
the very first customers called to complain because he was told that
our strapless tranport system would save him time. He said that at his
first track event, he was asked to demonstrate the system over and over
again and it took him forever before the other riders would let him
leave. There was simply nothing like it on the market! Pit Bull's
Trailer Restraint was granted a U.S. Patent for it's innovative concept
and our motorcycle trailer restraint system has been the industry
standard ever since!
