    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.

    The reg cab, Access cab and DC LB are the same size beds(6ft). It's the DC SB that have the shorter beds.(5ft)
