Tools, furniture, wood, appliances, etc I can see hauling no problem. Hell, even ATVs, lawn mowers, or other things like that. But bikes? Heavy, unstable, 2 wheeled death traps if they slip off the ramp or you fall trying to push it up. Unless you have a long ramp it's usually a steep angle to get the bike up. Do people push or ride them? So many bike ramps I've seen are not solid (sorta like small ladders) so to me it seems it's better to push the bike. If your foot slides, and the thing falls on you it's over. Truck is probably damage, bike is, you are.... So much easier to just get a covered trailer. Easier to load, safe from weather, and locked away from sticky fingers.
I'd love to get an R1. No way in hell I'm spending $11g's and then risk it falling off a ramp or otherwise getting damaged loading in the back of my truck. A small, cheap dirt bike maybe.
Not to mention they've damaged numerous tailgates until Toyota redesigned it.
