i'm in the market for a new daily driver and i'm thinking about maybe getting a minivan so i can transport my bike inside for track days. does anyone have any recommendations? i'd like to keep it under $20k if at all possible. maybe the honda element? will a 748 fit inside one of those?

Re: enclosed bike transport (slowpoke)

You will have to check out the particular minivan to see if your bike will fit. If you get a Chevrolet Astro, it will fit. They are a lot bigger, more like a midivan. They also have great tie down points when you remove the rear seats. Big plus is they also have a much larger tow rating than the average minivan if you decide to get a trailer.

Re: (casjoker)

Take all 20K and bet it on black.......take your 40K now and bet on #11 (36X odds)...you now have 1.4 million....buy us all minivans or hookers...or some combination thereof

Fitting a bike in a honda element?


Smallest van you should be looking at is the Chevy Astro. Better to just buy a full size cargo van.

Or spend 15K on a pickup and $2200 for a 6X12 enclosed.

I own a 748, and my wife has an Element. I've never tried, but I doubt there's enough top to bottom clearance to get it in the back. But, you can get 5 black Labs covered in mud and leaves in there, and it cleans up pretty easy. After my initial hesitation to warm up to the Element, it's definitely growing on me.

Neither will all the crashed pieces of bike plastic you've left littered on the West Coast
