I put my CBR600RR into the back of my truck to take from Michigan to Wisconsin (about 7 hours). My motorcycle didn't budge the whole trip. The grips were not damaged whatsoever. I did not even need a wheel chock to hold the bike. I cannot speak for the long-term use of this product because I only needed it for one trip. I will be using these again next time I need it. This worked great with 2 ratchet straps. I also connected 2 ratchet straps to the rear of my motorcycle just to be safe, but I probably didn't need them due to the stability provided by the harness. The harness also keeps the straps away from the fairings. If you follow the manufacturer directions listed on the box, you will not damage your motorcycle in any way. Excellent purchase.

Works as intended.
Despite other reviews, these straps did not damage my hand grips on my 2014 zx14 after a 760 mile trip. They make securing your bike a breeze, especially in conjunction with the Oxford bike dock.
The straps seem well made and keeps your ratchet straps from touching your fairings

Good Quality, Poor Construction, Not for Sportbikes
These harnesses are not meant for sport bikes. While the quality of the material used is good, really good. The construction method is poor for sport bikes. First, the cups are over sized. In the description they say they're meant for the largest grips, but unfortunately they do NOT provide even weight distribution for sport bike grips as a result. When synched the cups will pull down from the extreme end of the cup with opposite direct pressure to the cup opening. There is no pressure in the middle of the cup due to the oversizing. This type of pressure DOES cause damage to the grips every time you use them. It only takes 1 tow to see the effect. Second, the straps are routed very poorly through pulley system. This is hard to explain, but image adding a twist into one of the straps. This is what they've done to accomplish their standard routing. There's no way to undo this routing because they're sown in this way. What this does is cause the fleece protective cover to bind to one side or the other. It also makes it difficult to route the straps between the tank and upper triple tree. Again, are not good sport bike straps. These are easily a 1 star for sport bike use if it weren't for the quality of the material. As for recommendation, I wouldn't unless you ride a cruiser. If so, 4 starts. -1 due to the strap routing.

If you ever have to trailer or put your sports bike into a truck bed, these things are the best. Keeps the straps off of your fairings and locks your bike in tightly!

Works exactly as promised.
Worked perfectly!! The strap is wrapped in soft material to protect the tank during install. Easy to use...

Works great, makes life easier!
I frequently transport my Ducati 996 to the track for some fun at acute lean angles. I'm using a hitch mounted "mototote" on the back of my Dodge Ram pickup. The Canyon Dancer Bar Harness allows for a very convenient tie-down of the bike to the tie-down points, without putting hooks on the top clamp (which is always some sort of puzzle and questionable anchoring). Works well for my bike and application. One point to note is that the loops to hook your straps in are fairly long and you may need to use short-body ratchet straps to get enough pre-load. I've modified my straps to have the ratchets bolted directly to my carrier. I've also heard claims of some wear on the hand-grips due to the load of the "cups" on the canyon dancer strap. I do not have a problem with this. Works great for me and I consider it an essential rigging component to save your bodywork and make life easier.
