Question Will an F150 hold 2 sportsbikes in the back?

Need to haul both bikes across town and a friend offered me his F150. Has anyone managed to get 2 sportsbikes (MV + 999) in the back of a Ford F150 ?

I can put 2 sport bikes in my F150, but it's a pain. It helps greatly if you have 2 Baxley wheel chocks.

Elton's right, but I like Condors better. $240 at HD of C'ville.

I have an f150 6.5 foot bed and have put my brute and a monster in there with room. I'm sure it can be done.

Yves, it was a pleasure meeting you at The Bub...if you noticed, I had two Ducati Monsters in the short bed of my Dodge Ram 1500. On the trailer being towed was an F4 and a Ducati 748s. The load can be handled and I regularly put the F4 and another bike in my truck. An F150 would handle this just fine. I do use Baxley Sport Chocks and I have a rail system that allows multiple tie down points for stability. When the bikes are in the chocks and secured at four points, I can rock the entire vehicle by pushing on one of the bikes. 2500 miles so far on this trip and no problems. Load 'em up, tie 'em down and have no worries!

The hardest part is finding the right ramps to allow getting the bikes into the truck. I use a two ramp system and power the bikes up into the truck while walking up beside the bike on the adjacent ramp.

Yves, If you've got a full-sized bed on the F150, you can get two bikes in the back with the gate up.
