Will a motorcycle fit in a short bed truck?
A truck bed won’t fit an average adult dirt bike, even diagonally, unless the bed of the truck is at least five and a half feet long. Even then, it will ONLY fit diagonally. Putting your bike diagonally into the bed of your truck is going to be your best bet for fitting your bike into a standard short bed.
How do you tie down a motorcycle on a trailer without chock?
Use soft straps on the bike itself, then loop each of those to a ratchet strap. Compress your shocks a little, so the straps won’t disengage if you hit a bump in the road. Choose your anchor points carefully; two at the front, two at the back, one to a side. Don’t leave any slack in the straps.

How do you get a tall dirt bike?
To mount a tall bike, turn the handlebars away before getting on or off. Put the bike in gear, so it doesn’t move. Starting on the left of the motorcycle, turn the handlebars as far right as they will go. The bike then leans down and toward the rider, resulting in a big difference for short riders.
How do I get my motorbike into a van?
Both people should lift the front of the bike (using a correct lifting technique) and place the front wheel on the back of the van or trailer. Once the front wheel is resting on the back of the van or trailer, one person should get in the van, put the bike into first gear and hold the handlebars.
