Will a motorbike fit in the back??

Post by minimat » Sun Jan 23, 2011 9:41 pm

Well im looking into getting myself a caddy and getting rid of my l200 warrior. However i need to be able to get my motorbike in the back.

The bike in question is a tz 350 race bike and is quite a lot smaller than a modern bike or motorcross bike. But i dont want to commit to one if it wont.

Has anyone on here got one in either with or without bulkhead or alternatively whats the maximum length available if the bike is straight or diaganol and il have a measure of my bike and work it out

thanks in advance

Go to page 2 of Caddy Chat and check out the "how big is the load area of a 2K
That will answer all your questions
My wife said I do not listen

This is something I needed to find out as well.

A friend on another forum sent me a couple of pictures of his GSXR 1000 K5 in the back of his Caddy.

Bulkhead removed and passenger seat pushed all the way forward. Bike then put in on the diagonal, and passenger seat moved back to until it touches the front wheel.

I reckon I'll be able to get my bike in plus all my kit, spare wheels, tyre warmers, tools etc etc
