For those who have removed your rear passenger foot pegs, how do you strap the rear of your bike down when transporting on a trailer? Normally I would hook the straps to the rear pegs. Ideas?

On trailers I use a proper Tyredown over the rear tyre,
but on Utes I use a loop (short strap, cheap from the auto store) just in front of the rear footpeg hanger around the frame.
Its just secondary to the handlebars straps but as all my riding is 550km away its safe backup.





The bright green things, they cost $10, rated to 300kg, very versatile and stop hooks scratching or can be used in tight places for all sorts of loads.

If it fits your budget, these Race Hooks work great. I use them as blanking plates after removing both passenger peg mounts. The exhaust slip-on I installed doesn't need a rear mounting point.

Very similar to what Aufitt does. I use a 'canyon dancer' (linky below) strap across handlebars, two ties forward. Hooks over upper frame rails to hold the rear. For my Toyota Tacoma, if I put the front tire into the corner of the bed, I can close the tailgate - that wedges the bike and holds it pretty secure - four straps and it's not going anywhere.
