Re: Any SUV that can fit a motorcycle inside?

haha. how bout a compromise. the one spending the most money on the vehicle should have the most say about what it's going to be. what do YOU want to haul YOUR bike around. of course the most obvious and reasonable answer is a pickup. tell your girlfriend it can be a NICE pickup with roomy interior. the closest i would go to an suv would be subaru forester turbo xt or gmc typhoon (hehe). i dont see the reason for all this overgrown crap with a big v8 under the hood sucking down the fuel and all people haul with it is a bike/boat/jet ski/sleds. all v6 work. no need for navigator/excursion/escalade. but if you must impress your girlfriend/your friends/her friends by buying the biggest heaviest thing on the road and gassing it up all the time. have fun!

Re: Any SUV that can fit a motorcycle inside?

A windstar or any large ford van will fit a bike in it. SUV is almost impossible, unless u lay it down.

Re: Any SUV that can fit a motorcycle inside?

I've seen sportbikes fit in the Chevy Astro Minivan (actually, it was my 954 alongside an RGV250) without taking off any parts. No double bubbles though.

I've also seen a gixxer fit in a Honday Odyssey, but I can't remember if he took off the windscreen.
The cool thing about hauling in a van is you won't attract unwanted attention at the hotel when traveling to the track and you don't have to haul all your **** in every night!

Re: Any SUV that can fit a motorcycle inside?

Two words big daddy. El Camino.... To satisfy your girl, just buy a camper shell. When you need to haul the bike, pop it off. When she wants her "SUV" put it back on and throw some lawn chairs in the back. If her friends complain, refer to them as "bitches". Pretty soon you will be able to buy anything you want without asking her.

Re: Any SUV that can fit a motorcycle inside?

A year later and you come up with El Camino? Cmon she wants a fancy Escalade she wouldn't roll an El Camino although I would. Looks like I'm keeping the truck anyhow. Bought an old Civic to save on gas since I first posted and now the gas is back down to 2.15 here so I been driving in the truck alot lately without worry.

The POS civic I bought has over 200,000 miles and get 37MPG average its a 96 4-door DX manual. If I drive 55MPG it gets about 45MPG amazing. And its not even that much of a turd when I stomp on it. I don't think the new Hondas get as good mileage as this.
