    New to the forum from New York. I recently purchased a 2020 Triumph Rocket 3 TLC. Traded in a 2014 Rocket roadster. Before that rode a 2010 Triumph Thunderbird 1700 cc. Hello to all Triumph enthusiasts.

    Any idea what brand wheel chock can be used with my 2020 rocket 3. Purchased a new enclosed trailer, from outside my state had it delivered, with a factory installed wheel chock(generic) cradle on bottom into a v-nose stop. It does not hold up my rocket. It has 3 adjustments and neither one of them holds it up. The trailer manufacturer says he is trying to figure it out. It looks to me that the bottom cradle does not ride up the front wheel enough to push it toward the v-stop. Any help will be appreciated. If anyone knows which chock will work with the rocket 3 it would be helpful. Thanks!

    You are right traffic is bad down here. But I live in Staten Island, NY which is the smallest of the 5 boro's which make up NYC so traffic is somewhat better. I am also right next to new jersey so within an hour I can be into semi rural parts of that state. Also ride to Pennsylvania and upstate NY which is only 1-1 1/2 hours away. Some real nice riding.
    Just bought an enclosed Ironhorse trailer and plain on many trips in the future. Been riding to Vermont the last few years, nice riding there, now the trailer will only make it easier.
    Where are you from and where do you ride?

    Congrats on the new bike and trailer.
    New member here with a R3R used to be a sport bike rider owning various models of Suzuki gixxer 750's & 1000's for over 20 years but in my older years need a bit more comfort which I'm not finding the R3R to be exactly that but better than the gixxers and cant let go of the speed demon in me but liking it very much for the most part so far. You? Sounds like you have some kind of ride in and get off chock in your trailer which should be good its cant see why it wouldnt work with the bike unless the front tire is to big. Which trailer did you get from ironhorse? Looking for a two bike trailer for myself and the old lady and was considering one but there are so many choices. What are you towing with and hows the trailer you like it and recommend it? Thanks.
