During some of my trips I end up needing a ferry. I have two crossings coming up this year. My Roadstar was easy to tie down to the boat deck given there was so much open metal to reach without scratching the painted surfaces. The SVTC has a lot of fiberglass and will be more difficult to tie down without the strap coming into contact with a painted surface. The only conclusion I have come up with so far to tighten the bike down to the deck is to put a strap across the seat (but I hope it doesn't impact the seat warming device). Has anyone strapped their SVTC to a boat deck yet and how did you do it?
