Congrats. I transport mine in the back of my truck and travel as much as 80mph with no issues. I figure the slope of the roof and the front down-turn has to apply downward pressure and not catch the air...and so far it has. Do check that the roof bolts are snug though.

I  never worry about the roof. Maybe look for looseness, but I figured if it came off on the trailer than it would have on the trail.

Thought there was only Trail, EX, and EX W/EPS?

Congrats JJ, sure you'll love it. And I've never strapped the roof.  Like Cosmo said, if it can handle riding it can handle being in a trailer.

Oh... I see.  You'll love the stance then. I know the width isn't an issue for where I ride. I know mine slings mud everywhere even with the flares. So don't be surprised if y'all get a lil muddy.

The Z5 is 52" stance and the Z5 trail is 50".

Sweet rig, just make sure the dealer didn't miss tightening any of the bolts on the roof, otherwise I would trailer it as is.
