I was wondering how feasible it would be to haul a smaller motorcycle in the bed of a Ranchero. I have a Triumph 650 with a wheelbase of approximately 55.75 and a weight around 400 lbs. Tailgate down, I'm sure.
I'm talking about using it when the bike needs work, not a full time hauler to events and stuff. Perhaps some years are more suitable than others? I've searched but to no avail so I hope I'm not wasting anyone's time when there's an existing thread.
Dude you'll have no problem hauling the cycle around. Back when I was much younger and thought my 69 Ranchero was indestructable, I hauled things that only a fullsize truck probably should. The 302 did pretty good and didn't lose much power with a load of furniture, hide-a-beds, entertainment centers ect. I would never haul anything more than pillows or groceries with her now, though. I don't like scratches on my baby.
