2 bikes 1 truck

So I bought a 2003 Ford F250 super duty with an eight foot bed.
Will two bikes fit in there with no problem? Planning a trip and would like to avoid getting a trailer for now.
Any advice on tying down or wheel chocks?
Thanks for any help.

Note: He put the two people INSIDE the Dakota.

And YES, that is a great vehicle to carry bikes AND to tow trailer at the same time.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

I expected to see one motorcycle crapping into a truck bed, then both motorcycles eating out of that truck bed.
