I thought I would try a heavier duty set of tie downs than I currently have. They came in the same shipment as the carrier and light kit. I was impressed with the quality and thickness of the straps and ratchet mechanism. I feel that these would work on any style or size of motorcycle or ATV. As soon as I had assembled the carrier, I mounted my 150 cc scooter, and it was really easy. While help is always appreciated, I was able to get the scooter on the ramp and attach the tie downs without any assistance. The ratcheting mechanism is easy to tighten and release with one hand. After a short drive around the neighborhood, I am sure these will work for long trips, also.
