Looking at getting a F-150 4x4 supercab...

It comes with a 6 1/2 foot bed.... So I was wondering if my 2002 Suzuki SV650 Standard version would fit in the back...

I know the bike is more than 6 1/2 feet long... So would I be able to leave the tail down or put the bike in there cattycorner SAFELY???

Thanks for you advice guys and gals!!!

the short bed is what we have and yes you can safely leave the gate down. i personally would not put it in caddycornered due to not being able to get equal pull angles on the straps. get a bed extender so that anything else that you put back there won't slide out and go for it.


MissS:no now!!!

bambam nope you said i have a few hours

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

MissS: I'm a female, allowed to do it

What Bam said up there -

My 0.02 cents - get the Nissan Titan, better truck in my opinion. Won't buy a Ford unless it's a Diesel.

I've got a 2002 F-150 super cab with standard bed and I can actually close the tailgate on with my '03 R1 in there. It's a little tight but I think it's actually better that way!

I know it's not the same bike but figured it might help. I love my F-150. The only Ford I'll own is a truck.

Make that a Diesel F-250 Super Duty and I'll agree. Either way - good choice on truck and it will fit your motorcycle in it.

Hey dj, was that you turning onto Hunter Mill from Sunrise Valley at around 745-750 this morning???

Well I couldn't affored the crazy payments and 14% interest they were trying to shove on me. So I looked around and decided to go with something smaller and a bit more fun. I think with a trailer it may be able to pull my bike...

I bought a Rubicon.

Thanks for your help

Nice!! So I guess that means this winter I'll be matching Japanese Tin (Xterra) with your American Steel.

DT,

Do you offroad? Mud? etc... I haven't ever really done it before. I have heard that there is a place up in PA that has Rover Classes, they supply the land rover.

I know down in the OBX you can drive on the beach. Anywhere like that up here?

Let me know...

BTW Xterra's are nice, I think they are also out of my price range though.
