'92-'99 Suburban.....will a sportbike fit inside?

Wondering if anyone has attempted or seen a small sportbike fit upright in the back of one. It wouldn't be used frequently to haul a bike, more just curious if I decide to get a 2nd bike it would be great if it would fit. The few I have been looking at do have barn door style rear doors, eleminating the need to get over a tailgate.

I have one at the shop right now. I'll measure it for you tomorrow. Shoot me a PM during the day tomorrow to remind me. I doubt it's tall enough in the back though. You could always get a hitch hauler.

Hey thanks. Yeah I figure it would be a longshot. It it would be nice. It has a hitch already, but was trying to skirt having to get a trailer. In reality I'm just more concerned about my own bike fitting incase it breaks down lol. It's a cafe'd kz750 so it's a fair amount lower than a standard bike. A measurement would be a great help!

Yeah, I don't even need to measure this thing. Unless you ride a YSR50 there's no way you're getting a sportbike in there.

I've seen sportbikes fit in a minivan. the rear door didnt shut but it fit. You might have to let the air out of the tires

Jeff P. can get 2 600cc sportbikes in the back of his minivan, plus the gear for 2 people. Most of the time you need to take the windscreen or the front fairing off, but when there's a will there's a way.

I hope he doesn't mind the stolen photo...I think the bikes are a 600rr and a zx6



and yes, the doors all closed

Wow, I thought I was clever packing my Scion xB up. I've moved a 550lb gunsafe once, and a 90 gallon aquarium with tall oak stand, lights, rocks etc another time.

I can't imagine fitting that much chit in a minivan.
