    The first pic (Silver Taco) is a long bed. As far as the rear wheel on the tailgate goes, as long as the bike is securely strapped in, I don't seen any harm. I've seen anything from motorcycles to snowmachines on the tailgate. I personally would rather just get a small trailer, but that's because I don't want to let my bmw fall over while manhandling it into the bed. :D

    Interesting pictures! I thought that normally the restraint was supposed to fall behind the rear wheel, but I guess that proves you can use it either way. My friend uses one of those in his trailer and like it a lot.

    I'm looking at this pic and man my bike is listed as 80.5 inches. I can't see how it would be longer than an R1.

    I have a regular cab. Did Toyota offer a larger bed? I thought the largest dimension offered were standard with regulars.
