Going to pick up a new scooter this evening and only have the Brat to get it in. Has anyone fit this size bike (2001 Honda 1100 Spirit) in the bed? Not really worried about the weight as it is just under 600 lbs. but some of these cruiser class bikes are long. I know the tailgate will have to stay down but hate to drive over 50 miles to get the bike only to find out one wheel won't go all the way on.
Thanks, Glenn

if you cant lay it down, you could try standing it up and supporting it with wood braces, then tying it all down...

dont own a brat and havent seen one in some time, so I may not be visualizing very well.. also never transported a motorcycle before, so i may not be grokking the issue in fullness. in other words, if my comment is dumb, ignore me and smile. :)

I recently saw a 82-83 brat with a full dress 1100 goldwing in it.

I had a CR250 on the back with lots of room to spare.. and all kinds of junk piled in around it.. you should be okay aas long as you know how to tie down a bike!

Just don't idle with the tailgate down for too long. Could damage the paint.

The Shadow was probably easier than the pig. Had a couple of inches to spare. Of course with the way it is stretched out it felt like more than the 600lbs. that it was.

The pig was a pet for 7 years, to top this off she was coaked into the brat with a box of vegtables and old outdated HAM sandwiches i got from my fathers grocery store..when i got her to her new home her butt was sitting on the tailgate when i got stoped, would have been a great pic, but my concern was here falling out of the bed...........:banana:
