A while ago, there was a guy trying to sell a custom rack for two bikes in the bed. It had front wheel holders above the roof and the back wheel is on the tailgate.

Thanks for replies fellas, I had in mind to do something like the sportbike pic, my bike is a 250 gasgas only weighs 200#, my biggest concern are the tie down hooks.

I've seen a bunch of clever rigs for Bajas and bikes.

A few welded up a rear metal holder that mounts in the tow hitch receiver and sits level with the tailgate, allowing for a bike with a wheelbase longer than the bed.

I've moved a Honda Rebel for a friend by simply using a large and sturdy piece of wood to do the same (I actually extend the wood through the cargo port and I tie it down at the front using straps through the cargo hooks - then roll the bike up a ramp and onto the wood and tie it down front and rear to the hooks.

I figure if I'm ever pressed I probably COULD move one of our Moto Guzzis or our Harley (Sporty) that way too, but we'd be pushing the limits.

One really cool rig I saw had a cage built on top of the roof to dirt bike could be rolled up with the front tires on the roof and the rear tires sitting in the bed.

I've got pics of all this stuff, but I'm too lazy to find a pic host to post em. I can email if you want.

That sounds exactly like the one I saw for sale on eBay about a year ago. I would have loved to have snatched it up, but I don't own any motorcycles (yet).

You guys got it covered for me thanks - though I should post one of the cool trailer hitch adaptors I've seen that were made to hold the rear wheel while the rest of the bike was in the bed...

Haha! That's my Baja and R6 in the pic above! I can tell you my R6 has ridden around in the back of my Baja for over 5000 miles with no problems. A canyon-dancer across the handlebars and 2 tie downs is all it needs!
