Bolt It On Rack Updated in the MotoVan courtesy of BRIAN PIERCE

The Seat Time MotoVan is finally getting worked on again . Not only are we updating the Bolt It On Rack to their latest and greatest version , but we ’ re adding a gear pole !
The MotoVan build has been a very long journey . Looking back on it , it ’ s because I didn ’ t have a plan put into place . I just hoped I would remember to get to it . Luckily there are companies out there like Bolt It On that create products that allow me to move the ball forward a bit quicker . I didn ’ t have to do anything except “ bolt it on .”
This updated version of the Bolt It On Rack has updated wheel chocks , multiple attachment points , and a gear pole ! The Pro Wheel Chocks allow for dirt bikes or bicycles . In our family , those bicycles are mountain bikes , but they could easily be gravel or road bikes . The Pro Wheel Chocks do need straps for our dirt bikes , but they hold the bicycles without straps .
for a loose canon in the event of an accident .
The Gear Pole is a great addition for any van build . I use it for hanging my sweaty gear after a ride , but also for gear storage . My head light is always hanging in the same place and my sleeping bag has a spot off the ground . I will say it makes wandering around the van a bit awkward , but removing the rack isn ’ t the worst if you ’ re boondocked somewhere for an extended period of time .
The Bolt It On Rack system isn ’ t cheap , but it is a quality American made product that makes your life a hell of a lot easier because it does what it says it will do and then some .
As we stated in the video , this system is extremely secure and would do a hell of a job holding the bikes in incase of an accident . If you ’ re using self-tapping screws to mount a different setup , be prepared
