    Is anyone hauling a hayabusa or a zx14 in the bed of their tacoma (regular bed)? I have a ZX14 but I'm not sure if I will need to keep using a trailer to carry it around. I know it is a little longer (and heavier) than most sport bikes so I'm concerned about it putting too much weight on the tailgate.

    Also, have they strengthened the tailgates any since 2005? I know back then they had a problem with bending when loading motorcycles.

    Here's the bike I'm talking about.

    I've carried my Buell XB9 (it's short, I know) and my VFR (big and heavy...closer to your ZX14). I had no problems, but you could tell the truck felt it during loading/unloading.
