Will a Honda Element carry a dirtbike?

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

    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

    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.

  7. 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!


    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..........................
