headscratch Bad for the Tranny?

My parking brake is out of adjustment and I don't use it anyways like many of you, but my question is during transport should I leave it in neutral or in gear? I had a strap break before so I like the idea of it being in gear and not rolling off my trailer but is it bad for the bike to leave it in gear?

I leave it in gear, if you strap it down correctly there should not be any issue.

I secure mine quite tightly through the front of the frame behind the bumper and the rear of the frame and ratchet till the shocks compress alittle. I didn't think it would be an issue

I go overboard a little just incase i break a strap. Foot pegs to front and back of truck bed and grab bar to bumper(Holds tailgate up in shortbed so stuff does not roll out). If it is a long ride I will also put front of frame to tie down on eather side so 5 -7 straps(so overboard). I gess to many straps is better than seeing an xx pass me on the road with no rider. I never leave it in gear. It will kill the trany sooner or later.

I leave it in neutral with my tail gate down and no straps. I like to live dangerously.

Lol, very good point! I actually put it in gear and use one ratchet strap, xx doesn't move at all. Leaving it in gear is more of a back up plan in case the strap fails.
