Which Condor are you talking about? PS1500 or the SC 2000?

I use both and have not found a better chock for a trailer or free stander in a garage, car-port etc.

I have a Baxley that works great when mounted in my trailer. It is multi-adjustable, so you can make it fit "just right". When used on my garage floor, my front tire just shoves it around the garage. I have to lay a piece of 2x4 in front of it, then the tire will roll up on the wood, then into the chock. Once there, again, works great.

I know you did not ask about the Bike-Pro, but I have one of them also. It is not near as adjustable as the Baxley, and my VTX fell out of it while just sitting there. No one touching it. I don't use it anymore.

Have never tried the Condor. However, the local Honda dealer I bought the Baxley from, also sold the Condor. He recomended the Baxley, so that's what I went with. Don't missunderstand me, I'm not saying the Baxley is indeed better, again, I have never used one myself.

Bad experience with Condor. The bike fell over twice due to what they claimed were quality problems with the metal used for the lower V. They refunded my money but would not fix the damage. I would not use them again. They did claim to have fixed the problem after my experience. They had a "batch" of bad metal. This happened in 04.

Bulldog, I am looking at the SC2000 (169.95 w/free shipping from customdynamics)

Any reason, other than Alum, to consider the 1500???

PS Just changed out the Mobil 1 with Amsol. Noticed that it shifts much better and
I had a slight slipping problem, if I got on it hard in 4th it seemed to slip with a jerk once in a while, that is now GONE.

I have the sc2000 mounted in a 6x10 trailer and it works great. Can't
see paying any more for another one.
