    So i am buying a 2009 TRX450R tomorrow, and i am trying to figure out how i am going to haul it and my CRF250R. Any suggestions? Do any of you have one of those trailer hitch dirtbike haulers? I think if i go that way i will need to buy the 2 bike one and just use the rear spot because my tail gate will have to be down, because im sure the four wheeler will be too long. Any recommendations? (2005 Dbl cab short bed). Thanks guys!

    Yea, I'm looking to haul both at the same time. I know the quad will fit with the tailgate down.

    Rain Visors,
    Make a head ache rack and prob the 450 up on its real wheels, srtap it down good and tight, then use one of the rear mounted hitch racks for the dirt bike. You can make them super cheap with some C-channel and some scrap steel. and they will hold just fine. and if your worried put a saftey chain just in case;

    i dunno about a short bed, but i fit my yfz450 and ttr225 in the back of my longbed by geting plywood and setting it on the bed lip, and two 2X6 running accross width wise. pain to get in, but it would probably be better with a second person... you short bedders could rig somethin up im sure, maybe extend the ply to the tail gate or something, good luck
