Hauling a Bike in a Truck

1918 Views 15 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  FordForever
I'm driving tomorrow to Tulsa Oklahoma from Dallas, TX to pick up my new 07 R6. I just bought a truck a week ago and its my first truck and will also be my first time hauling something in the back. I bought tie downs but I'm just curious if there is anything in particular I should know about loading, strapping hauling, and unloading a bike in the truck.

The truck is a 99 Ford ranger. 4 cyclinder, but I'm sure it'll do just fine hauling just a bike.
