Do any of you transport your xr650r inside a full size van? I have an 89 ford extended with a cavernous interior, and at least 48" high at the rear and side openings. Probably 54" high overall inside. Does anyone have a measurement from the ground to the grips?

I'm about to go pick up my new ride and need to know if I'll be able to fit it in :cry: I'm so excited!

Thanks, Mokes

Mokes,

It should fit. I've loaded my pig into a friends Ford van(can't remember year for sure but it was mid 80's), and didn't have a problem. As I recall we just used an extra tie-down to compress the front forks, (run from handlebars to bottom of fork) and chucked it in.

Enjoy that new ride!
