Default Will a Honda Element carry a dirtbike?

Anybody try to fit a dirtbike in the back of a Honda Element?
I have a Yamaha TW200.
It's pretty small.
Thanks.
George

Consider what that TW200 will do to you when you are in a collision or roll
the thing in the ditch ... I'd get a trailer and be done with it.

Good ridin' to ya,

I agree about the trailer, but that also cancels the need for the
Ellement. Pretty much any car can tow a light trailer with a dirtbike on it.

I advise you to take a tape measure to the local Honda dealership and
measure the storage area. You should be able to figure out whether or not
it will fit after measuring your bike. I agree with the other posters that
told you that making use of a trailor to carry the bike is a better
option. Placing a Yamaha motorcycle in the back of a Honda Element could
result in some damage to the Honda Element unless great care is used. For
example, the trim or carpet could be damaged by oil or scrapps
(spellling??).

Hell I remember a time when we bought pickup trucks to put stuff in the
back. If I see a guy with a pretty pickup truck pulling a trailer it
cracks me up. 4 wheel drive vehicles all over the place that never leave
the road - IMHO we're going nuts in this country. ;-)

Two dirtbikes as in bicycles will fit! Almost no car can do that without
taking off the front bicycle wheel.

Since driving in-itself will cause you possibly serious harm when involved
in a collision or roll over. I'd WALK!

and godforbid your a dirt biker, you'll have to give it up.... Let me
recommend either raising fish in a tank or kite flying!

BUT WATCH THOSE HIGH TENSION LINES AND FOLLOW THE MANUFACTERERS
RECOMMENDATIONS.


anyway you should have enough room, I'd tie-down to the seats (where they
clamp) when they're pushed up. then to the 4 other tiedowns.

and be aware of those afraid of life..........................
