    I have added 2 d rings to the front of the bed and that works for just hauling one bike because it's in the middle of the bed.When I haul 2 bikes I can't use both d rings because it leaves a lot of slack on one side of both bikes and when I use the bed rails it works but I don't trust it so much.Are there any other options besides using a trailer?

    Can't you put a strap from the handlebar of one bike to the handlebar of the other bike? That would stop them moving wouldn't it?

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    This is what I do, works great! I also put a strap through the rear wheel and wrap the wheel and hook it to the floor hooks, just for kicks and giggles.

    You should invest into one of these. Its the universal bed rack. It has two wheel chokes and strong d rings that actually pull the dirtbike to the bed. That way the bikes dont move at all when you are driving. I also put mine in at an angle when im only hauling one bike so I can close the tailgate too.

    Search TW. There are three or four good threads on this topic. One in particular has pictures of a great product not already pictured here for holding the front tire of the bike.
