New Truck Thread

I'm going to start a new truck thread. Everything else that's related is older than a year, so might as well start fresh.

So the scoop is I don't have a bike anymore, but am looking at getting another one in about 6 months. 2004-2006 Yamaha R1 is my top choice, but that's beside the point. The thing I can't decide upon is the truck I want to go underneath it. I currently have a 1999 Chevy S10, which will do the trick until I can get a nicer truck down the line.

On to requirements:

4 doors. V6+. Long bed (must be able to fit an R1 straight w/ a closed tailgate). 2004+ (can slide a bit on that, down to about 2002, but I am going for long term keeper here). < 60k mileage. ~12K.

Now I either want a small truck (ie. Dakota / S10 size) or a big truck (F350 class). But not in between (ie. 150, 1500, etc).

As a random side note, is there any hope of fitting a sport bike into a jeep wrangler (2dr)? I've been trying to find a pic of someone who has done it.

Now we could also discuss decent covered solutions to hauling bikes, such as Van, SUVs, etc. I am not sure what other options there are besides buying a van, which is not something I am particularly interested in doing, unless its a kick ass van.

I don't know. Some people really fancy bigger trucks, and some fancy having smaller trucks. I am undecided between those two. But what I don't want is an entry level 150 class truck.

I've found some interesting F-250 crew cabs I like, but bed size I am not sure about.
